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.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment GDPR 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.

What topics are covered in the GDPR Online Test?

  • Data Privacy

    Data privacy refers to the protection of personal data and ensuring that individuals have control over how their data is collected, used, and shared. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's understanding of legal and regulatory requirements related to data privacy and their ability to implement measures to safeguard privacy.

  • Data Protection

    Data protection involves implementing measures and processes to safeguard personal data from unauthorized access, use, or disclosure. Evaluating candidates on this skill helps recruiters determine their knowledge of data protection principles and their ability to implement effective data protection measures.

  • Data Security

    Data security focuses on protecting data from unauthorized access, alteration, or destruction. Assessing this skill allows recruiters to gauge a candidate's understanding of cybersecurity practices and their ability to implement security measures to prevent data breaches.

  • Data Breach

    A data breach refers to the unauthorized access, disclosure, or destruction of personal data. Including this skill in the test helps recruiters assess a candidate's knowledge of data breach response procedures, breach prevention strategies, and their understanding of the potential impact of data breaches on individuals and organizations.

  • Data Processing

    Data processing involves collecting, organizing, and manipulating data to extract meaningful insights or to perform specific tasks. Measuring this skill helps recruiters assess a candidate's proficiency in data processing techniques, tools, and their ability to ensure compliance with data processing regulations.

  • Consent Management

    Consent management involves obtaining and managing the consent of individuals for the collection, use, or sharing of their personal data. Assessing this skill allows recruiters to evaluate a candidate's knowledge of consent requirements, their ability to establish consent mechanisms, and their understanding of the legal implications of consent management.

  • Data Retention

    Data retention refers to the period for which personal data is stored and maintained. Including this skill in the test helps recruiters assess a candidate's understanding of data retention policies, their ability to determine appropriate retention periods, and their knowledge of legal obligations regarding data retention.

  • Data Subject Rights

    Data subject rights refer to the rights of individuals over their personal data, including the right to access, rectify, erase, or restrict the processing of their data. Evaluating this skill helps recruiters assess a candidate's understanding of data subject rights under data protection laws and their ability to handle data subject requests effectively.

  • Data Transfer

    Data transfer involves the transmission of personal data from one location or organization to another. Assessing this skill allows recruiters to gauge a candidate's knowledge of data transfer regulations, their ability to implement appropriate data transfer mechanisms, and their understanding of the risks associated with cross-border data transfers.

  • Data Controllers

    Data controllers are entities that determine the purposes and means of processing personal data. Including this skill in the test helps recruiters assess a candidate's understanding of the rights and responsibilities of data controllers under data protection laws and their ability to ensure compliance with data protection obligations as a controller.

  • Data Processors

    Data processors are entities that process personal data on behalf of data controllers. Measuring this skill helps recruiters assess a candidate's knowledge of the responsibilities and obligations of data processors, their ability to implement appropriate security measures, and their understanding of the contractual requirements for data processing.

GDPR 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.
