QuarkXPress 5 Basics Assessment


QuarkXPress 5 Basics Assessment

Skills Assessment

QuarkXPress, once primarily an application for simple desktop publishing and text-oriented document creation, has evolved with capabilities challenging the veteran typographer, graphic artist and web designer. This test qualifies the level of fundamental knowledge the applicant has with the program to differentiate between those using QuarkXPress primarily for Word processing (administrative assistant) or complex layouts (graphic designer). The assessment includes topical areas such as basic features and functions of the program, incorporating images, setting text styles, creating web documents, and collection for output.

An assessment for Adobe Pagemaker 6.5 is also available.
