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

How to evaluate Senior Android Developers

The questions for senior developers focus on advanced Android topics like:

  • Using Dependency Injection to implement the Separation of Concerns principle (Dagger and Hilt)
  • Implementing RecyclerView in various orientations
  • Maintaining Backward Compatibility
  • Avoiding "Spaghetti Code" and "God Classes"
  • Single-Activity vs. Multi-Activity trade-offs
  • Concurrency and Multithreading challenges (Blocked threads, Thread pool, Async task)
  • Thread Class, Garbage Collector, Memory Leaks
  • Advanced libraries like RxJava, Retrofit
  • Advanced functionality with deep links, in-app notifications, and push notifications.
  • Designing advanced graphics and animations (custom views, drawing on a canvas, clipping canvas objects, and using shaders)
  • Accessibility Services in Android
  • Experience with Jetpack Compose- layouts, state, animation, navigation, testing, accessibility and side-effects
  • Optimizing app performance- measuring and improving rendering, memory performance, data compression, batter use, network calls

Along with these the questions to evaluate Java/ Kotlin fundamentals will be of higher difficulty level.

Distribution Of Test Scores

The actual score distribution will vary based on your candidate pipeline quality, but you should typically expect ~20% of the candidates to do well on Adaface assessments.

The score distribution for our assessments follow the normal curve. This is a good sign- standardized tests like SAT and GRE follow the normal distribution (bell curve).

Status quo assessments typically have the exact opposite of the bell curve (too many candidates getting close to 0, too many candidates getting close to 100 and too few candidates in the middle). This is typically because they focus on theoretical questions or trick questions, which are very binary in nature- either you know the trick/ theory or you don’t.

How Adaface Is Different

Adaface conversational assessments are reflective of on-the-job skills and see an 86% completion rate as compared to ~50% for traditional assessment platforms.

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.

What is a custom assessment?

Every role is different and requires a custom assessment to identify top candidates efficiently. Adaface subject matter experts understand your job description/ role requirements and pick the most relevant questions from our library of 10000+ questions to create a technical assessment that helps you find the qualified candidates in your candidate pipeline quickly. All custom assessments are set up based on the job description, role requirements, must-have skills, experience level and salary range within a maximum of 48 hours and you will get an email notification once it goes live.

Check out a sample assessment here (no credit card required).

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.

How is Adaface different from other assessment tools?

We believe that status quo tech assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate engineers because they focus on trick questions/ puzzles/ niche algorithms. We started Adaface to help companies find great engineers by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role. Read more about why we started Adaface.

Here's what's different with Adaface:

  • High quality non-googleable questions that test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge.
  • A friendly conversational assessment with a chatbot, instead of sending a "test" to a candidate. This translates to a higher completion rate. Adaface assessments (86% candidate completion rate), as opposed to traditional tests (40-50% candidate completion rate)
  • Customized assessments for 700+ skills at different experience levels.

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

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagairism detection
  • Non-googleable questions
  • 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?

The platform is completely self-serve, so here's one way to proceed:

  • You can sign up for free to get a feel for how it works.
  • The free trial includes one sample assessment (Java/ JavaScript) that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions, and the candidate experience of a conversational test on Adaface.
  • To review the quality of questions, you can also review our public questions for 50+ skills here.
  • Once you're convinced that you want to try it out with real assessments and candidates, you can pick a plan according to your requirements.

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