Repository creation: Creating and setting up repositories to organize and manage different versions of a project. This skill is important as it demonstrates the ability to create a new repository, initialize it with the necessary files, and configure repository settings.

Branching and merging: Crafting multiple branches to work on different features or bug fixes concurrently, and merging the changes back to the main branch. This skill showcases the proficiency in creating, switching, merging, and deleting branches, which is essential for collaborating and managing complex projects.

Committing changes: Recording and tracking modifications made to a repository by creating commits. This skill assesses one's ability to write concise and descriptive commit messages, as well as understanding the workflow of staging changes before committing them.

Conflict resolution: Handling conflicts that arise when merging changes that conflict with each other. This skill demonstrates the proficiency in analyzing conflicts, making necessary adjustments, and resolving them effectively to maintain a clean and functional codebase.

Remote repositories: Working with remote repositories to collaborate with other developers and synchronize code changes. This skill involves knowledge of adding remote repositories, pushing and pulling code, and resolving conflicts that arise during remote synchronization.

Rebasing: Modifying and integrating changes from one branch onto another by applying commits in a linear sequence. This skill showcases the ability to rewrite commit history, resolve conflicts, and keep the repository history organized and coherent.

Git workflows: Understanding and implementing different Git workflows such as central, feature branch, or forking workflows. This skill assesses the knowledge of choosing appropriate workflows based on project requirements, collaborating with teammates, and ensuring a smooth and efficient development process.

Git commands and concepts: Familiarity with essential Git commands and concepts, including but not limited to cloning repositories, checking out branches, fetching and pulling changes, and understanding concepts like HEAD, tags, and remotes. This skill demonstrates a solid foundation in the usage and understanding of Git's core functionalities.

Git branching models: Implementing specific branching models, such as the Gitflow model or the trunk-based development model. This skill showcases the ability to design and follow branching strategies that align with the project's complexity, scalability, and collaboration requirements.

Can I combine multiple skills into one test?

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.

What roles can I use the Git Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • Software Developer
  • DevOps Engineer
  • Web Developer
  • System Administrator
  • Quality Assurance Engineer

Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?


The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test 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 giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

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.

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.
