Registration Queue
Logic
Queues
Solve
We want to register students for the next semester. All students have a receipt which shows the amount pending for the previous semester. A positive amount (or zero) represents that the student has paid extra fees, and a negative amount represents that they have pending fees to be paid. The students are in a queue for the registration. We want to arrange the students in a way such that the students who have a positive amount on the receipt get registered first as compared to the students who have a negative amount. We are given a queue in the form of an array containing the pending amount.
For example, if the initial queue is [20, 70, -40, 30, -10], then the final queue will be [20, 70, 30, -40, -10]. Note that the sequence of students should not be changed while arranging them unless required to meet the condition.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The first line of the input is the length of the array. The second line contains all the elements of the array.
- The input is already parsed into an array of "strings" and passed to a function. You will need to convert string to integer/number type inside the function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.

For the example discussed above, the input will be:
5
20 70 -40 30 -10

Your code needs to print the following to the standard output:
20 70 30 -40 -10

Visitors Count
Strings
Logic
Solve
A manager hires a staff member to keep a record of the number of men, women, and children visiting the museum daily. The staff will note W if any women visit, M for men, and C for children. You need to write code that takes the string that represents the visits and prints the count of men, woman and children. The sequencing should be in decreasing order. 
Example:

Input:
WWMMWWCCC

Expected Output: 
4W3C2M

Explanation: 
‘W’ has the highest count, then ‘C’, then ‘M’. 
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The input is already parsed and passed to a function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.
- If the input is- “MMW”, then the expected output is "2M1W" since there is no ‘C’.
- If any of them have the same count, the output should follow this order - M, W, C.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Appium (Android) 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.

What topics are covered in the Appium Android Online Test?

  • Android Simulation

    Android Simulation is the process of replicating the behavior of an Android device or application on a different platform or environment. It allows developers to test their apps in various scenarios and configurations, ensuring their functionality and performance under different conditions, such as different Android versions, device types, and hardware specifications.

  • Debugging

    Debugging is the process of identifying and fixing issues and bugs in software code. It involves analyzing the code, tracing its execution, and diagnosing errors or unexpected behavior. In the context of app development, proper debugging skills are crucial to identify and resolve issues related to functionality, performance, and compatibility.

  • Scalability

    Scalability refers to the ability of a software system or application to handle an increasing workload or growing user base without sacrificing performance or stability. In the case of Android apps, measuring scalability helps assess the application's ability to handle a large number of concurrent users, handle increased data processing or storage requirements, and maintain responsiveness under high load.

  • Compatibility

    Compatibility in the context of software refers to the ability of an application to function as intended across different platforms, devices, or software versions. Assessing compatibility skills in this test helps determine a candidate's understanding of platform-specific requirements, such as adapting the app's UI and functionality to different screen sizes, hardware capabilities, and software versions.

  • Configuration

    Configuration refers to the setup and adjustment of various parameters and settings of an application or system. In the case of Android app development, configuration skills involve understanding and correctly configuring key components, such as permissions, dependencies, device capabilities, and network settings, to ensure optimal performance, compatibility, and security.

  • Dependencies

    Dependencies are external libraries, frameworks, or modules that an application relies on to function properly. Understanding and managing dependencies is essential to ensure that an app has access to necessary functionalities and resources, and that it remains compatible with the required libraries or frameworks. The measurement of dependency skills in this test evaluates a candidate's ability to identify, include, update, and manage dependencies efficiently.

Appium Android Hiring Test FAQs

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. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

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
  • Screen proctoring
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser
  • Copy paste protection

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.
