Reason #2

No trick questions

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.

View sample questions

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.

How we design questions

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

Asynchronous Processing
Asynchronous Execution
Performance Optimization
Workflow Design
Solve
An RPA developer must design a workflow that initiates several web data extraction tasks simultaneously. Each task may take a variable amount of time to complete. The workflow should be optimized for performance, ensuring that the overall execution time is minimized by running these tasks in parallel. Once all tasks are completed, the workflow should compile the results into a single report. Which method should be used to achieve efficient asynchronous processing in this scenario?
A: Implement multiple parallel process activities, synchronizing them at the end with a join activity before report compilation.
B: Sequentially execute each web data extraction task and compile the report immediately after each task completes.
C: Use a multi-threaded approach by invoking external scripts that run in parallel and communicate back to the RPA process.
D: Create a dispatcher-performer model where the dispatcher queues tasks and the performer executes them as they are queued.
E: Schedule individual bots for each task to run at the same time and use a file-based system to compile results post execution.

Error Handling
Selector Dynamics
Solve
An RPA developer is tasked with automating a web-based application process that involves dynamically generated IDs for interface elements. The developer decides to use a combination of anchor-based and attribute-based selectors to identify UI elements reliably. Given that the application generates new session IDs for each element upon each login, which of the following methods should the developer use to construct a robust selector strategy? Consider the need for error handling in scenarios where elements are not found.
A: Use wildcard characters in the selector for static attributes and avoid using session IDs.
B: Hardcode the session IDs into the selectors for each element for consistency.
C: Create separate workflows for each session ID and invoke them based on the session.
D: Use regular expression matching in selectors to handle dynamic session IDs.
E: Avoid using selectors and rely solely on image-based recognition for element identification.

Medium

Integrating RPA with Database
Database Connectivity
Transaction Management
Error Handling
Solve
An RPA process involves retrieving data from a SQL database, processing the data, and then updating the database with new values. It's critical if an error occurs at any point, the database changes must be rolled back to maintain data integrity. What is the most effective approach for implementing this operation within an RPA workflow?
A: Establish a continuous loop that retries the database update until it succeeds, with a delay between each attempt.
B: Implement separate database connection activities for each data retrieval and update, with custom error handling logic.
C: Employ a state machine design, with states for data retrieval, processing, and updating, and transitions based on success or failure.
D: Use an external script (e.g., Python or PowerShell) to manage the database transaction, and invoke it from the RPA process.
E: Utilize a database transaction block with commit and rollback activities integrated into the RPA workflow.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Blue Prism Assessment 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.

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Blue Prism Assessment 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.

Blue Prism 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.
