Adaface Deductive Reasoning Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Fresherss

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Deductive Reasoning Test helps recruiters identify which of their candidates are capable of coming to the right conclusions using the given information. It shows hiring managers that certain candidates can use given information, analyze the data and map out a logical deduction. This is a key skill set most organizations look for in an employee.

The Adaface Deductive Reasoning test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for:

  • Ability to reason
  • Ability to analyze data and come up with logical conclusions
  • Experience in solving problems by piecing together several pieces of information
  • Ability to use logic and reasoning to accomplish various tasks

The anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The insights from the Deductive Reasoning test are ideal for understanding which of your candidates have the reasoning and critical thinking capabilities to succeed on the job.

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.

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.

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

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Deductive Reasoning 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

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.

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.
