Adaface Android Online Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Android Developers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Android Online test saves expensive engineering time by filtering out unqualified Android programmer candidates. The Adaface Android Online test screens candidates for the typical skills hiring manager look for in an Android developer:

  • Java or Kotlin fundamentals
  • Object-oriented programming in Java or Kotlin
  • Core UI components: dialogues, spinners, text fields, buttons
  • Android building blocks: Activities and Activity lifecycle
  • Designing layouts and views: constraint layout, recycler views, list views, scroll views, card views
  • Developing background tasks, triggering events, sending notifications
  • Enhancing user experience with fragments- when, why and how to use fragments
  • Saving, retrieving and updating user data using shared preferences, SQLite and Room
  • Reading and parsing raw resources or asset files
  • Use popular libraries to play videos, download website data, manipulate images for interactive components
  • Using themes and styles: Material design principles
  • MVC and MVVM architectures
  • Using Reactive View Models with Presenters
  • Developing miniature app views with widgets
  • Getting data from device sensors: accelerometer, location
  • Working with databases and backend servers
  • Managing user permissions
  • Exception handling in Android
  • Debugging and testing Android apps; system logs, breakpoints, inspecting variables, automated tests

Along with these Android-specific skills, the test includes MCQ questions and coding questions to evaluate hands-on Java or Kotlin programming skills.

Reason #2

No trick questions

Traditional assessment tools use trick questions and puzzles for the screening, which creates a lot of frustration among candidates about having to go through irrelevant screening assessments.

The main reason we started Adaface is that traditional pre-employment assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate candidates. At Adaface, our mission is to help companies find great candidates by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role.

Why we started Adaface ->
Reason #3

Non-googleable questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Android Online Test will be non-googleable.

Solve
                        A startup company E-Motors is building driverless automated cars. The car contains a sensor that checks the road quality for the next N meters to decide the optimal speed at which the cars should move. We are given recorded data by the sensor in the form of an array, where each element of the array is the rating given to 1 meter of the road in sequence. 

The rating given by the sensor is from 1 to 100, where 100 represents the road with the best condition, and any rating above 60 is optimal. Find the longest stretch of road in meters that is categorized as optimal by the sensor.

The input is an array of "strings" which needs to be converted from string to integer/number inside the function.

    Reason #4

    1200+ customers in 75 countries

    Brandon

    With Adaface, we were able to optimise our initial screening process by upwards of 75%, freeing up precious time for both hiring managers and our talent acquisition team alike!


    Brandon Lee, Head of People, Love, Bonito

    Reason #5

    1 click candidate invites

    Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Android Online Test from your dashboard by entering their email address.

    Public link: You can create a public link for each test that you can share with candidates.

    API or integrations: You can invite candidates directly from your ATS by using our pre-built integrations with popular ATS systems or building a custom integration with your in-house ATS.

    Reason #6

    Detailed scorecards & comparative results

    Reason #7

    Designed for elimination, not selection

    The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Android Online Test in your hiring process is that it is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. In other words: you want to use the test to eliminate the candidates who do poorly on the test, not to select the candidates who come out at the top. While they are super valuable, pre-employment tests do not paint the entire picture of a candidate’s abilities, knowledge, and motivations. Multiple easy questions are more predictive of a candidate's ability than fewer hard questions. Harder questions are often "trick" based questions, which do not provide any meaningful signal about the candidate's skillset.

    Reason #8

    High completion rate

    Adaface tests are conversational, low-stress, and take just 25-40 mins to complete.

    This is why Adaface has the highest test-completion rate (86%), which is more than 2x better than traditional assessments.

    Reason #9

    Android Online Test FAQs

    How is the test customized for Java Android developers?

    Along with Android questions, the test will have scenario-based MCQ questions to evaluate core Java concepts (OOPs, Classes, Exceptions, Collections) and coding questions to evaluate hands-on Java programming skills. You can review our standard Java test to understand what kind of questions will be used.

    How is the test customized for Kotlin Android Developers?

    Along with Android questions, the test will have scenario-based MCQ questions to evaluate core Kotlin concepts (Variables, Strings, Collections and OOPs) and coding questions to evaluate hands-on Kotlin programming skills. You can review our Kotlin online test to understand what kind of questions will be used.

    How to evaluate Junior Android Developers?

    The difficulty level and topics of the questions will be customized for junior developers. The questions will be relatively easy and focus on the basics of Android development (designing layouts, developing activities, handling user interactions, saving user data). Along with Android, there will be easier MCQ questions to evaluate Java/ Kotlin basics and simpler coding questions.

    Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

    Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify.

    Do you have any anti-cheating or proctoring features in place?

    We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

    • Non-googleable questions
    • IP proctoring
    • Web proctoring
    • Webcam proctoring
    • Plagiarism detection
    • Secure browser

    Read more about the proctoring features.

    How do I interpret test scores?

    The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

    What experience level can I use this test for?

    Each Adaface assessment is customized to your job description/ ideal candidate persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 10000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for any experience level.

    Does every candidate get the same questions?

    Yes, it makes it much easier for you to compare candidates. Options for MCQ questions and the order of questions are randomized. We have anti-cheating/ proctoring features in place. In our enterprise plan, we also have the option to create multiple versions of the same assessment with questions of similar difficulty levels.

    I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

    No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.

    What is the cost of using this test?

    You can check out our pricing plans.

    Can I get a free trial?

    Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.

    I just moved to a paid plan. How can I request a custom assessment?
