Sample Ansible and Jenkins Online Test Questions

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

🧐 Question🔧 Skill💪 Difficulty⌛ Time
Improve build time
Sameera set up a build environment where Jenkins will check a Git repo for changes every hour and apply that build to 40 servers. Jenkins also runs some scripted performance based tests. On the basis of the results, it marks the build as complete or rolls back the build and marks it as failed and updates the team. Recently Sameera observes that the build itself is taking over an hour to finish, which sometimes affects the push of updates. What changes could Sameera make to improve the time it takes to complete and test a build?
A: Remove performance testing from the build, and schedule it as a separate job 30 minutes after the build runs and trigger a rollback if the testing fails.

B: Create additional Jenkins Masters and deploy to each one. Schedule the job staggered by 30 minutes on each, so that additional master servers won't be busy if the first job takes longer to run.

C: Add one or more slaves allowing us to deploy code to multiple end points at a time. Break up the job into multiple jobs so that each can be triggered upon successful completion of the previous job. This will eliminate scheduling issues on beginning a new build when subsequent steps take longer than intended.

D: None of these would work in the current scenario.

About Jenkins Ansible Job Roles

Jenkins Ansible is the simplest way to automate apps and IT infrastructure. Application Deployment + Configuration Management + Continuous Delivery. Jenkins is a well-known tool for implementing CI/CD. Shell scripts are commonly used for provisioning environments or to deploy apps during the pipeline flow.

DevOps Engineers are the middle people that collaborate with the Development and Operations teams to build, test and deploy software in short, fast bursts. DevOps is a strategy and mindset, and this role bridges a gap in traditional development, whereby Developers create software and Operations runs software exclusive from one another.

Typical responsibilities of a DevOps Engineer (Jenkins/ Ansible) include:

  • Responsible for designing secure, highly available DevOps pipeline
  • Build and test code continuously with scripting and programming languages
  • Measure performance and environment of application with system & application log tools
  • Implement automation, effective monitoring, and infrastructure-as-code
  • Have on call responsibilities in rotation with the engineering team
  • Automating tasks using scripting languages (Python, Ruby etc)

The test is designed to filter out candidates for roles like

  • DevOps Engineer
  • System Administrator
  • Ansible Developer
  • Ansible Expert
  • Jenkins Expert

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.

Ansible and Jenkins Online Test FAQs

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.

  • 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.
