Standardised aptitude test which assesses a given candidates ability to follow complex instructions and most importantly to test initiative?

I am currently advertising for various freelancers to complete tasks for a relatively complex project requiring certain qualities in the candidate to...
1) An ability to follow complex instructions about how to format data in data entry. (Good cognitive and comprehension ability)
2) An ability to use a high level of initiative.
I am advertising on freelancing sites, and I am currently overwhelmed with applications. It is hard to interview and asses them all on an individual basis, so is there some kind of standardised ready-made test which I could give to all shortlisted candidates to test their ability to follow certain instructions, and also their initiative - which is by far the most important quality required of candidates.
Any help much appreciated. just to reiterate, the testing of initiative is most important.
