Is this a coding test or an MCQ quiz?
This online test included not just MCQ questions, but also requires candidates to solve coding challenges in Java and identify and fix bugs in a Java program.

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. As in an assessment is optimizing to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best developer for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 60%, 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 developer persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 5000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for SQL developer roles for any experience level (unless the role is primarily a leadership/ non-programming role, we do not recommend you a use any automated assessments in that case).

*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 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 an engineer. Can I try a practice test? No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment.

What is the cost for using the SQL online test?
Please get in touch, we'll create a custom plan for you based on the number of assessments you need.
