GSA Capital online test

Can anyone advise what this entails? This is for a quant researcher position - they gave no details other than describing it as a research assessment. The test website is Correlation One which I believe Citadel also uses.

I took it a while ago. Wasn't very prepared for it. It's a combination of statistics, probability, calculus and some basic quant finance stuff. Some of it is multiple choice and some of it is where you type in a number. If you aren't prepared it's pretty hard because it tests a lot of content that you wouldn't necessarily be thinking about or using day to day as a quant researcher. Not so bad if you were recently in school taking these classes but if you are a bit out of school I would definitely study your probability and stats and a bit of basic machine learning principles.
