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.

Try practice test
You are a database administrator for an organization that uses Azure SQL Database for its operations. The organization has a strict data retention policy and has set up the following backup strategy:

1. Full backups are taken every Sunday at midnight.
2. Differential backups are taken every day at midnight, excluding Sunday.
3. Transaction log backups are taken every hour on the hour.

On Wednesday at 2:30 PM, a failure occurred, and the latest backup files available are: full backup from the previous Sunday, differential backups for Monday and Tuesday, and transaction log backups up to Wednesday 2 PM.

In order to restore the database to the most recent point in time with the minimum amount of data loss, in what order should you restore the backups?
A: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Tuesday, then the differential backup for Wednesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Wednesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

B: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Wednesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Wednesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

C: Restore the full backup, then each differential backup from Monday and Tuesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Wednesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

D: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Monday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Monday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

E: Restore the full backup, then the differential backup for Tuesday, then each transaction log backup from midnight on Tuesday to 2 PM on Wednesday.

Try practice test
You are an Azure Administrator and you manage a Linux VM running an internal web application in Azure. The web application communicates with a database server hosted on another VM in the same Virtual Network (VNet).

Recently, users have reported that the web application is not accessible. After initial troubleshooting, you have identified that the web application VM is unable to establish a connection with the database server VM on port 5432.

You have checked and confirmed the following:

1. Both VMs are up and running without any issues.
2. Both VMs are located in the same VNet and subnet.
3. Both VMs can successfully ping each other.
4. A Network Security Group (NSG) is associated with the subnet, and it has a rule allowing all outbound traffic from the web application VM.
5. The NSG rule for inbound traffic to the database VM on port 5432 has a higher priority than the default deny all rule.

Given the information provided, what could be the most likely reason for the issue and the appropriate resolution?
A: Add a route table to the subnet to enable communication between the VMs.

B: The NSG rule priority for the inbound traffic to the database VM is not set correctly. Adjust the priority to be lower than the default rule.

C: Check if a firewall is enabled on the database VM that might be blocking the port. If so, configure it to allow connections on port 5432.

D: The issue is related to the DNS resolution. Update the DNS settings in the VNet to enable name resolution between the VMs.

E: The web application is not correctly configured to connect to the database. Update the connection string in the web application configuration.

Resolving NSG Configuration Issues
Virtual Machines
Security
Try practice test
You are an Azure Administrator in a software development company. A Linux VM is deployed on Azure, hosting an application server running on port 5000, set to start whenever the VM is booted up.

The VM is associated with a Network Security Group (NSG) having the following inbound security rules:

- Rule 100 (Priority: 100): Allow SSH (port 22) from any source
- Rule 200 (Priority: 200): Allow HTTP (port 80) from any source
- Rule 400 (Priority: 400): Allow TCP traffic on port 5000 from any source
- Rule 300 (Priority: 300): Deny all inbound traffic from any source

The outbound security rules are configured to allow all traffic to any destination.

Internal users have been attempting to connect to the application server on port 5000 but they are consistently facing connection timeouts. You've confirmed the application server is up and running, and you can connect to the server locally on the VM.

What is the most probable cause of the problem and how would you fix it?
A: The inbound rule to allow TCP traffic on port 5000 is conflicting with the rule to allow HTTP on port 80. Remove Rule 200.

B: Rule 300 to deny all inbound traffic is being processed before Rule 400 to allow traffic on port 5000. Modify the priority of Rule 400 to a value less than 300.

C: The application server should be configured to listen on a well-known port instead of port 5000. Change the server settings.

D: The NSG is missing an inbound rule to allow ICMP traffic. Add a new rule with a lower priority.

E: The NSG needs to have an outbound rule specifically allowing traffic to port 5000. Add a new outbound rule.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Data Analytics in Azure 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.

Data Analytics in Azure 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.
