Lisez le paragraphe suivant et choisissez les vraies options:
Et, en France, la classe politique pourrait bien ressembler, tout du moins en nombre d'années, à un « pouvoir gris ». Plus de la moitié des sénateurs ont plus de 60 ans, l'âge moyen des maires de communes de plus de 3 500 habitants est de 54 ans. Idem pour ceux qui les élisent. Alors qu'ils représentent 20 % de la population, les retraités forment déjà 30 % des électeurs. Bref, la démocratie a les tempes blanchies. Or, quand les papy-boomers seront à la retraite, ils auront encore plus de temps. Ne vont-ils pas accaparer les affaires publiques à leur avantage ? Faut-il redouter une gérontocratie à la française ? « Fantasme ! » Jean-Philippe Viriot-Durandal, maître de conférences en sociologie à l'université de Franche-Comté, en est convaincu. Vieux ne veut pas forcément dire réac. Il en veut pour preuve deux exemples, décortiqués dans son livre. D'abord, la dernière élection présidentielle, où le vote pour le Front national fut autant le fait des jeunes électeurs que de leurs aînés. La preuve aussi avec l'adoption de l'euro. « Six mois après l'introduction définitive de la monnaie unique européenne, les nostalgiques du franc étaient à peine plus nombreux chez les plus de 65 ans que dans l'ensemble de la population – 53 %, contre 48 % », écrit le sociologue. Qui ajoute que « l'opposition entre les jeunes générations, ouvertes sur le monde et sur l'avenir, et les anciennes, rétives au changement et réfractaires à la nouveauté », ne serait que caricature.
A: La démographie électorale en France rajeunit, moins de la moitié des sénateurs ayant plus de 60 ans et l'âge moyen des maires des communes de plus de 3,500 habitants étant inférieur à 54 ans. 

B: Selon le sociologue Jean-Philippe Viriot-Durandal, la perception des générations plus âgées plus opposées au changement et aux idées nouvelles par rapport aux plus jeunes est une véritable représentation de la dynamique sociétale actuelle en France.

C: L'analyse de Jean-Philippe Viriot-Durandal suggère que les « papy-boomers », malgré leur âge, restent individualistes et prêts au changement, soulignant leur capacité propension à se reconstruire même bien après l'âge de la retraite.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment French (Upper Intermediate/B2) 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.

French (Upper Intermediate/B2) 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.
