Adaface Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Engineers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) 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 time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The Adaface Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Online Test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Engineer roles:

  • Engineering background in GCP, across a wide range of GCP services
  • Understanding of GCP infrastructure services including GCE, GSC, KSM, VPC, Cloud Load Balancing, GKE, Stackdriver, IAM, DNS and firewalls
  • Experience with Infrastructure-as-Code technologies: Terraform, Ansible
  • Understanding of Cloud Security

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Engineer roles. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Google Cloud Platform (GCP) Online Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the skills to do well on the job.

Reason #2

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.

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 #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.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this GCP Test will be non-googleable.

Sam Sankman works as Cloud Associate at FTXX Inc. FTXX’s core application is deployed in a Google Kubernetes Engine cluster. When a new version of the application is released, CI/CD tool updates the spec.template.spec.containers[0].image value to reference the Docker image of the new application version. When the Deployment object applies the change, Sam wants to deploy at least 1 replica of the new version and maintain the previous replicas until the new replica is healthy. Which change should Sam make to the Kubernetes Engine Deployment object shown below?

A: Set the Deployment Strategy to Rolling Update
B: Set the Deployment Strategy to Recreate

C: Set maxSurge to 0
D: Set maxSurge to 1

E: Set maxUnavailable to 0

Depp works as Google Cloud Architect at Amber Inc. Deep created an instance with following firewall rules:
NAME: ssh-allow
NETWORK: testnet
DIRECTION: INGRESS
PRIORITY: 100
ALLOW: tcp:22

NAME: deny-everything

DIRECTION: INGRESS
PRIORITY: 400
DENY: tcp:0-65535,udp:0-6553
What would happen if Depp tries SSH to the instance now?

A: SSH would be denied as the deny rule overrides the allow
B: SSH would be allowed as the allow rule overrides the deny
C: SSH would be denied and would need instance reboot for the to allow rule to take effect
D: SSH would be denied and would need gcloud firewall refresh command for the allow rule to take effect

Kloo is a social media platform similar to Twitter in the EU market and uses Google Cloud for their infrastructure requirements. Kloo generates multiple files per day. Owing to data regulations, Kloo has to store these files in the EU regional bucket. Kloo’s data team needs only the files of last 14 days for their algorithms and APIs but need to store every single file for safe keeping and regulatory purposes even though the past data is rarely accessed. Given these constraints, how can Kloo’s data team lower the storage costs?

With Adaface, we were able to optimise our initial screening process by upwards of 75%, freeing up precious time for both hiring managers and our talent acquisition team alike!

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

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

Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

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

API or integrations: You can invite candidates directly from your ATS by using our pre-built integrations with popular ATS systems or building a custom integration with your in-house ATS.

Reason #7

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

Reason #8

High completion rate

Adaface tests are conversational, low-stress, and take just 25-40 mins to complete.

This is why Adaface has the highest test-completion rate (86%), which is more than 2x better than traditional assessments.

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.

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
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • 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.
