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 Frank Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Database testcase
Regression Testing
Adaface is developing a new database system called “Helen”. The tester at Adaface developed the following testcase for regression testing:
1. Open Helen
2. Open “Students” database
3. Enter data for “Sid”
4. Set checkpoint
5. Store “Sid” data in “Students” 
6. Restart Helen
7. Read “Sid” data from “Students”
8. Compare checkpoint with the contents
When the tester ran the testcase the first time, it worked as expected. Pick the correct statements:

A: When the test case is ran the second time, the data entry for “Sid” already exists in the database. 
B: When the test case is ran the second time, it performs exactly as it did the first time
C: The testcase is a good example for regression testing “Helen”
D: The testcase is not a good example for regression testing “Helen” since the system behaves differently when the testcase is ran the second time


Decision Table
Check the following decision table:
What are the expected actions for following testcases?

I: Joey's age is 22. He is a smoker residing in India

II: Jennifer's age is 62. She is a non-smoker not residing in India

A) I - Insure, 10% discount. II - Insure, no discount
B) I - Don't insure. II - Don't insure
C) I - Insure, no discount. II - Don't insure
D) I - Insure, no discount. II - Insure, 10% discount

6. Click “Continue”.
7. Expect the app to go to shopping screen to add/remove items from the cart. Instead the app crashes. 
8. The error in steps 5 and 7 occurred in every attempt of 5 attempts (1 2 3 4 and 6).

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Frank 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
Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Frank 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.

What topics are covered in the Frank Online Test?

  • Writing and Running a Feature/Test

    Writing and running a feature/test involves creating test scenarios and test cases to validate the functionality of an application. This skill is important as it allows developers to verify that their code is working as expected and identify any issues or bugs that may arise during testing.

  • Frankify Application

    Frankify Application refers to the process of integrating the Frank testing framework into an existing application. It enables developers to write automated tests for iOS applications and execute them on simulators or real devices. This skill is vital for ensuring the reliability and stability of the application.

  • Frank-cucumber Basic

    Frank-cucumber is a tool that provides a way to write and run Cucumber acceptance tests for iOS applications using Frank. This skill allows developers to define and execute high-level user scenarios to ensure that the application meets the expected behavior and user requirements.

  • View Selectors

    View selectors are used in Frank to identify and interact with specific UI elements within iOS applications. This skill is necessary for locating and manipulating elements such as buttons, labels, and text fields during automated testing, helping to ensure the correct functioning of the application's user interface.

  • Accessibility Labels

    Accessibility labels are used in iOS applications to make the user interface elements accessible to people with disabilities. In the context of testing, this skill is essential for verifying that the accessibility labels are correctly assigned to UI elements, enabling accurate automated testing and ensuring inclusivity.

  • Frank Remote Access

    Frank Remote Access enables developers to run Frank tests on real devices remotely, without the need for physical access. This skill is valuable for testing applications across different devices and platforms, ensuring consistent behavior and compatibility across a wide range of user environments.

  • Linker Flags

    Linker flags are used in iOS applications to control the behavior of the linking process during compilation. This skill is important for managing dependencies, optimizing performance, and resolving any issues related to linking libraries or frameworks within the application.

  • Making JSON calls to Frank

    Making JSON calls to Frank involves sending requests and receiving responses in JSON format, allowing developers to interact with the Frank server during testing. This skill is necessary for performing various actions, retrieving information, and analyzing test results with the help of Frank's built-in capabilities.

  • Build and Run

    Building and running an iOS application refers to the process of compiling the source code and executing it on simulators or devices for testing and debugging purposes. This skill is fundamental for validating the changes made to the application, identifying potential issues, and ensuring the overall functionality before deployment.

Frank Hiring Test FAQs

Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

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.
