Adaface Cucumber Assessment Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Test Automation (Cucumber) Engineers

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Cucumber Test helps recruiters and hiring managers identify qualified candidates from a pool of resumes, and helps in taking objective hiring decisions. It reduces the administrative overhead of interviewing too many candidates and saves time by filtering out unqualified candidates at the first step of the hiring process.

The test screens for the following skills that hiring managers look for in candidates:

  • Developing and implementing Cucumber test scenarios
  • Generating comprehensive reports using Cucumber
  • Executing Cucumber tests
  • Identifying and fixing issues in Cucumber tests
  • Utilizing Cucumber command line options effectively
  • Utilizing advanced features of Cucumber to enhance tests
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 Cucumber Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Database testcase
Regression Testing
Adaface is developing a new database system called “Helen”. The tester at Adaface developed the following testcase for regression testing:
1. Open Helen
2. Open “Students” database
3. Enter data for “Sid”
4. Set checkpoint
5. Store “Sid” data in “Students” 
6. Restart Helen
7. Read “Sid” data from “Students”
8. Compare checkpoint with the contents
When the tester ran the testcase the first time, it worked as expected. Pick the correct statements:

A: When the test case is ran the second time, the data entry for “Sid” already exists in the database. 
B: When the test case is ran the second time, it performs exactly as it did the first time
C: The testcase is a good example for regression testing “Helen”
D: The testcase is not a good example for regression testing “Helen” since the system behaves differently when the testcase is ran the second time


Decision Table
Check the following decision table:
What are the expected actions for following testcases?

I: Joey's age is 22. He is a smoker residing in India

II: Jennifer's age is 62. She is a non-smoker not residing in India

A) I - Insure, 10% discount. II - Insure, no discount
B) I - Don't insure. II - Don't insure
C) I - Insure, no discount. II - Don't insure
D) I - Insure, no discount. II - Insure, 10% discount

Incident Report
Review the following incident report written QA team of LWB, Little White Book (an e-commerce app):
1. Place any items in the cart (Say “Nike FST Men”).
2. Place any other (different) item in the shopping cart (Say “Nike Air Max”).
3. Remove “Nike FST Men” from the shopping cart, but leave “Nike Air Max” in the cart.
4. Click on “Check out” button.
5. Expect the app to display the check out screen, instead ‘No items in the shopping cart. Click continue to go back to shopping.’ error message is shown as a popup.
6. Click “Continue”.
7. Expect the app to go to shopping screen to add/remove items from the cart. Instead the app crashes. 
8. The error in steps 5 and 7 occurred in every attempt of 5 attempts (1 2 3 4 and 6).

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Cucumber 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.

Cucumber 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.
