Data Entry Operator Keyboard Test

Most data entry operator positions are located in Charleston. Online tests are not required for these positions; however, applicants who have applied for the Data Entry Operator 1 or 2 job class(es) will take an online performance (typing) test, which is the same typing test used for the other clerical job titles.

As with all other job titles, you should first apply online.  Once you have completed the application process, you'll receive test instructions with an access code.  To receive scores on data entry positions, completion of the typing test is required.

  • IMPORTANT: Any falsification in the typing test procedure, such as allowing another person to take the test for you, is a serious violation of State law. All applicants can expect to have their typing skills re-tested by the employing agency if contacted for an interview. Failure to meet your claimed speed and accuracy level may result in permanent State employment disqualification and possible prosecution of all persons involved.​
