Adaface Data Analytics in GCP Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Data Analysts



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Data Analytics in GCP Online 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:

  • Ability to perform data analysis using Google Cloud Platform
  • Understanding of data analytics tools and techniques
  • Ability to develop and deploy data pipelines
  • Proficiency in SQL querying for data analysis
  • Experience in data visualization and reporting
  • Knowledge of statistical analysis and modeling

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.

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 Data Analytics in GCP Test will be non-googleable.

Kloo is a social media platform similar to Twitter in the EU market and uses Google Cloud for their infrastructure requirements. Kloo generates multiple files per day. Owing to data regulations, Kloo has to store these files in the EU regional bucket. Kloo’s data team needs only the files of last 14 days for their algorithms and APIs but need to store every single file for safe keeping and regulatory purposes even though the past data is rarely accessed. Given these constraints, how can Kloo’s data team lower the storage costs?

Storage in Compute Recovery
Cloud Storage
Backups
Solve
You work as a data manager for a large e-commerce company that heavily relies on a PostgreSQL database running on a GCP Compute Engine instance. The company has a well-established backup policy, which includes:

1. Full database backup every Monday at 1:00 AM.
2. Differential backup every day at 1:00 AM, except Monday.
3. Transaction log backup every 30 minutes.

These backups are stored in Google Cloud Storage. Today is Thursday, and a data corruption incident occurred at 4:15 PM. You have the following backup files available:

1. Full backup: Full_Backup_Mon.bak taken on Monday 1:00 AM.
2. Differential backups: Diff_Backup_Tue.bak, Diff_Backup_Wed.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak taken at 1:00 AM on their respective days.
3. Transaction log backups: 30-minute interval backups from Monday 1:30 AM until Thursday 4:00 PM, like TLog_Backup_Thu_1530.bak, TLog_Backup_Thu_1600.bak.

Given the RPO (Recovery Point Objective) of 30 minutes, which of the following sequences of restore operations would ensure minimal data loss?
A: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak, then Transaction Log backups from Thursday 1:30 AM to 4:00 PM.
B: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Wed.bak, then all Transaction Log backups from Wednesday and Thursday.
C: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak, then all Transaction Log backups from Thursday.
D: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, then all Transaction Log backups from Monday to Thursday 4:00 PM.
E: Full_Backup_Mon.bak, Diff_Backup_Tue.bak, Diff_Backup_Wed.bak, Diff_Backup_Thu.bak, then Transaction Log backups from Thursday 1:30 AM to 4:00 PM.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

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

Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Data Analytics in GCP 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.

Data Analytics in GCP 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.
