The bridge officer's test is probably exactly what it sounds like - a test to determine an officer's readiness to serve on the bridge (where they could at any time be called upon to take command) or to stand a watch (where they would definitely be left in command). It's just that Troi, as a staff officer, hadn't taken the test, while even the greenest ensign wearing gold or red had taken the test before leaving the Academy.
I mostly agree, but I don't think that everyone in gold would've taken the test. Perhaps tactical officers assigned to the bridge, or Ops dudes, but your average engineering or security guy seems unlikely.
