Why You Should Use This Financial Analyst Assessment Test

The Adaface Financial Analyst aptitude assessment 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 expensive engineering time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The Adaface Financial Analyst aptitude assessment test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for in a Financial Analyst.

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for the role. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Financial Analyst Online test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the necessary skills to do well on the job.

Skills Assessed with the Financial Analyst Assessment Test

Financial reasoning tests reveal a person's basic financial knowledge and measure a person’s ability to solve financial problems. Typical financial reasoning questions will require a knowledge of ratios, percentages, profits, and interest, etc. These tests are widely used by companies in the financial industry, such as banks, mortgage companies, business consulting, etc.

These tests typically contain scenario based questions with a short description of a scenario that is accompanied with extracts of numerical data. The questions require candidates to filter and extract the necessary information quickly and effectively. These tests also test candidates' ability to complete more elaborate calculations compared to what is expected within a numerical reasoning test.

Candidates are expected to be well versed in reading business statements, profit and loss accounts and balance sheets. Like numerical reasoning tests, questions will include data in graphs, tables, and text format.

About The Role

Financial analysts examine financial data and use their findings to help companies make business decisions. Often, this analysis deals with investing. An analyst must be aware of current developments in the field in which they specialize, as well as in preparing financial models to predict future economic conditions for any number of variables.

A Financial Analyst forecasts future revenue and expenditures to help determine budgets for upcoming projects. Finance is a very data-driven industry and one of the challenges of working as an analyst is being able to analyze and interpret financial statements, market trends and microeconomic conditions in order to offer recommendations on potential business deals and decisions. Compared to many high-paying careers, the qualifications to become a financial analyst are much less rigid and well-defined.

Proficiency with Microsoft Excel is mentioned in almost every financial analyst job description; familiarity with data query/data management tools is extremely helpful (Access, SQL, Business Objects).

Typical responsibilities of a financial analyst might include:

  • Analyse current and past financial data
  • Create reports on the above information and communicating the insights of these reports to the wider business
  • Suggest budgets and improvements based on the above information
  • Identify and drive process improvements, including the creation of standard and ad-hoc reports, tools, and Excel dashboards
  • Develop financial models and providing financial forecasts
  • Increase productivity by developing automated accounting applications; coordinating information requirements
  • Work closely with the accounting team to ensure accurate financial reporting

Distribution Of Test Scores

The actual score distribution will vary based on your candidate pipeline quality, but you should typically expect ~20% of the candidates to do well on Adaface assessments.

The score distribution for our assessments follow the normal curve. This is a good sign- standardized tests like SAT and GRE follow the normal distribution (bell curve).

Status quo assessments typically have the exact opposite of the bell curve (too many candidates getting close to 0, too many candidates getting close to 100 and too few candidates in the middle). This is typically because they focus on theoretical questions or trick questions, which are very binary in nature- either you know the trick/ theory or you don’t.

How Adaface Is Different

Adaface conversational assessments are reflective of on-the-job skills and see an 86% completion rate as compared to ~50% for traditional assessment platforms.

What is a custom assessment?

Every role is different and requires a custom assessment to identify top candidates efficiently. Adaface subject matter experts understand your job description/ role requirements and pick the most relevant questions from our library of 10000+ questions to create a technical assessment that helps you find the qualified candidates in your candidate pipeline quickly. All custom assessments are set up based on the job description, role requirements, must-have skills, experience level and salary range within a maximum of 48 hours and you will get an email notification once it goes live.

Check out a sample assessment here (no credit card required).

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.

How is Adaface different from other assessment tools?

We believe that status quo tech assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate engineers because they focus on trick questions/ puzzles/ niche algorithms. We started Adaface to help companies find great engineers by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role. Read more about why we started Adaface.

Here's what's different with Adaface:

  • High quality non-googleable questions that test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge.
  • A friendly conversational assessment with a chatbot, instead of sending a "test" to a candidate. This translates to a higher completion rate. Adaface assessments (86% candidate completion rate), as opposed to traditional tests (40-50% candidate completion rate)
  • Customized assessments for 700+ skills at different experience levels.

Do you have any anti-cheating or proctoring features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagairism detection
  • Non-googleable questions
  • Secure browser

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?

The platform is completely self-serve, so here's one way to proceed:

  • You can sign up for free to get a feel for how it works.
  • The free trial includes one sample assessment (Java/ JavaScript) that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions, and the candidate experience of a conversational test on Adaface.
  • To review the quality of questions, you can also review our public questions for 50+ skills here.
  • Once you're convinced that you want to try it out with real assessments and candidates, you can pick a plan according to your requirements.

I just moved to a paid plan. How can I request a custom assessment?
