Adaface Django Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Python Developers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Django 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 develop web applications using Django
  • Proficiency in Python syntax and concepts
  • Understanding of object-oriented programming in Python
  • Experience in web development with Django
  • Knowledge of integrating databases with Django
  • Familiarity with Django models, views, and templates
  • Ability to work with forms in Django
  • Understanding of URL routing in Django
  • Knowledge of authentication in Django
  • Experience in testing Django applications
  • Understanding of deployment process for Django applications
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 Django Online Test will be non-googleable.

Pick the correct statements if settings.APPEND_SLASH=False:

A: A request to /books/2015/04/ would match the third entry in the list. Django would call the function views.month_books(request, year=2015, month=4).
B: A request to /books/2015/04/ would match the second entry in the list. Django would call the function views.year_books(request, year=2015).

C: A request to /books/2023/ will match the first entry in the list. Django would call the the function views.custom_newyear_2023(request).
D: A request to /books/2023/ would match the second entry in the list. Django would call the function views.year_books(request, year=2023).

E: /books/2022 would not match any of these patterns, because each pattern requires that the URL end with a slash.
F: A request to /books/2022 would match the second entry in the list. Django would call the function views.year_books(request, year=2022).

External Bank Transfer
Database Transactions
Solve
Review the following Django code for a banking application:
 image
The code needs to debit an account with the provided amount and deposit the amount in an external entity. Here’s how the code is broken:

1) First, the amount is debited from the account by creating a new row in BalanceLine table.
2) Next, a new row is created in the DB in ExternalTransfer table and a new id (used as unique reference) is created for the transfer.
3) An external 3rd party API call is made using the new id created in step 2.

The function transfer_to_other_bank is called as shown below:
 image
Pick the correct statements:

A: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the database transactions that happened in transfer_to_other_bank are not rolled back since they are listed in a separate atomic transaction.
B: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the database transactions (new rows in ExternalTransfer and BalanceLine tables) are rolled back. The banking_api call is called again with a null reference.
C: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the database transactions are rolled back but the banking_api is not called again.
D: If post_transfer_emails() raises an exception, the banking_api is called again with rollback=True. If the response is success, then the database transactions are rolled back. If the response is failure, the database transactions are committed.

Solve
 image
The function high_sess should compute the highest number of events per session of each user in the database by reading a comma-separated value input file of session data. The result should be returned from the function as a dictionary. The first column of each line in the input file is expected to contain the user’s name represented as a string. The second column is expected to contain an integer representing the events in a session. Here is an example input file:
Tony,10
Stark,12
Black,25
Your program should ignore a non-conforming line like this one.
Stark,3
Widow,6
Widow,14
The resulting return value for this file should be the following dictionary: { 'Stark':12, 'Black':25, 'Tony':10, 'Widow':14 }

Solve
Consider the following Python code:
 image
In the above code, recursive_search is a function that takes a dictionary (data) and a target key (target) as arguments. It searches for the target key within the dictionary, which could potentially have nested dictionaries and lists as values, and returns the value associated with the target key. If the target key is not found, it returns None.

nested_dict is a dictionary that contains multiple levels of nested dictionaries and lists. The recursive_search function is then called with nested_dict as the data and 'target_key' as the target.

What will the output be after executing the above code?

Registration Queue
Logic
Queues
Solve
We want to register students for the next semester. All students have a receipt which shows the amount pending for the previous semester. A positive amount (or zero) represents that the student has paid extra fees, and a negative amount represents that they have pending fees to be paid. The students are in a queue for the registration. We want to arrange the students in a way such that the students who have a positive amount on the receipt get registered first as compared to the students who have a negative amount. We are given a queue in the form of an array containing the pending amount.
For example, if the initial queue is [20, 70, -40, 30, -10], then the final queue will be [20, 70, 30, -40, -10]. Note that the sequence of students should not be changed while arranging them unless required to meet the condition.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The first line of the input is the length of the array. The second line contains all the elements of the array.
- The input is already parsed into an array of "strings" and passed to a function. You will need to convert string to integer/number type inside the function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.

For the example discussed above, the input will be:
5
20 70 -40 30 -10

Your code needs to print the following to the standard output:
20 70 30 -40 -10

Visitors Count
Strings
Logic
Solve
A manager hires a staff member to keep a record of the number of men, women, and children visiting the museum daily. The staff will note W if any women visit, M for men, and C for children. You need to write code that takes the string that represents the visits and prints the count of men, woman and children. The sequencing should be in decreasing order. 
Example:

Input:
WWMMWWCCC

Expected Output: 
4W3C2M

Explanation: 
‘W’ has the highest count, then ‘C’, then ‘M’. 
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The input is already parsed and passed to a function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.
- If the input is- “MMW”, then the expected output is "2M1W" since there is no ‘C’.
- If any of them have the same count, the output should follow this order - M, W, C.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Django Online 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.

Science behind Adaface tests

About the Django Assessment Test

Why you should use Pre-employment Django Online Test?

The Django Online Test makes use of scenario-based questions to test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge, ensuring that candidates who do well on this screening test have the relavant skills. The questions are designed to covered following on-the-job aspects:

  • Understanding of Django fundamentals
  • Proficiency in Python syntax
  • Knowledge of Python Object-Oriented Programming
  • Experience with web development using Django
  • Ability to integrate databases in Django
  • Familiarity with Django models
  • Understanding of Django views
  • Proficiency in Django templates
  • Knowledge of Django forms
  • Ability to implement URL routing in Django

Once the test is sent to a candidate, the candidate receives a link in email to take the test. For each candidate, you will receive a detailed report with skills breakdown and benchmarks to shortlist the top candidates from your pool.

What topics are covered in the Django Online Test?

  • Django Fundamentals

    Django Fundamentals refers to the core concepts and principles of the Django web framework. It involves understanding the MVC (Model-View-Controller) architecture, working with the Django ORM (Object-Relational Mapping) for database operations, and mastering the basic features of Django such as routing, views, templates, and forms. This skill is measured in the test to assess a candidate's knowledge of the foundation of Django development.

  • Python Syntax

    Python Syntax refers to the rules and conventions that govern the structure and format of Python code. It includes elements such as variable declaration, data types, control flow statements, loops, functions, and exception handling. Measuring this skill in the test helps evaluate a candidate's ability to write clean and correct Python code.

  • Python OOP

    Python OOP (Object-Oriented Programming) involves using the principles of encapsulation, inheritance, and polymorphism to organize and structure code. It allows developers to create reusable and modular code, enhancing code readability and maintainability. Assessing this skill in the test helps determine a candidate's proficiency in applying object-oriented principles in Python.

  • Web Development with Django

    Web Development with Django refers to using Django to build dynamic and interactive web applications. It involves creating views that handle HTTP requests, rendering templates to generate HTML output, and integrating other web technologies like CSS and JavaScript. Evaluating this skill in the test assesses a candidate's ability to develop web applications using Django effectively.

  • Database integration

    Database integration in Django involves establishing a connection between the web application and a database management system. It includes tasks such as defining and creating database models, performing CRUD (Create, Read, Update, Delete) operations, and implementing database queries using Django's ORM. Measuring this skill helps determine a candidate's proficiency in working with databases in Django applications.

  • Models

    Models in Django are Python classes that define the structure and behavior of the data stored in the database. They provide a convenient way to interact with the database by abstracting away the underlying SQL queries. Assessing this skill in the test evaluates a candidate's understanding of creating, querying, and modifying database models in Django.

  • Views

    Views in Django handle user requests and return appropriate responses. They process inputs received from users, make queries to the database, and render templates to generate HTML output. Evaluating this skill helps determine a candidate's ability to implement logic for handling different HTTP requests and generating dynamic web pages.

  • Templates

    Templates in Django are used for rendering dynamic web pages by combining HTML code with data from the database or other sources. They provide a way to separate the presentation logic from the application logic. Measuring this skill in the test assesses a candidate's familiarity with creating well-structured and reusable templates in Django.

  • Forms

    Forms in Django are used to handle user input and validate data. They provide a convenient way to generate HTML forms, handle form submissions, and perform data validation. Assessing this skill helps determine a candidate's ability to create and work with forms in Django web applications.

  • URL Routing

    URL Routing in Django involves mapping URLs to specific views or resources in a web application. It allows defining patterns for URL matching and routing requests to the appropriate views. Evaluating this skill helps assess a candidate's understanding of URL configuration and navigation in Django.

  • Authentication

    Authentication in Django refers to the process of verifying the identity of users accessing the web application. It involves tasks such as user registration, login, session management, and authorization. Measuring this skill in the test helps determine a candidate's knowledge of implementing secure user authentication and access control mechanisms in Django applications.

  • Testing

    Testing in Django involves writing automated tests to verify the functionality and correctness of the web application. It includes unit tests, integration tests, and functional tests to ensure the application works as expected. Assessing this skill helps evaluate a candidate's proficiency in writing reliable and comprehensive tests for Django applications.

  • Deployment

    Deployment in Django refers to the process of making the web application available for use on a production server. It involves configuring the application for deployment, managing dependencies, setting up the server environment, and ensuring the application runs smoothly in production. Measuring this skill in the test assesses a candidate's understanding of deploying Django applications in real-world scenarios.

Django 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.
