Its been long time, what exactly is a written skills assessment test for a potential job interview?

I have a job interview on Friday, and I was told that I would be taking a written skills assessment test. The last test I've taken was for computer skills, but this one I do not recall ever taking. The job is for an Adm Assistant including supervisory duties, so what exactly will this test say about my written skills pertaining to the job?? Is there a website that can explain also?? Thanks

The word written here is implying the test is on paper not that it is about your writing skills. For an administrative assistant there will probably include computer, grammar/punctuation, and time management scenarios.

They want to see how well you write. Trust me. Some people, like me, cannot write well at all. Word usage and penmanship.

they probably want to measure your basic reading and writing grammer and understanding of basic skills non math related
