How we design questions

Test candidates on core Google Sheets Hiring Test topics

Spreadsheet functions: Spreadsheet functions are built-in formulas and calculations that are used to perform various operations on data in a spreadsheet. These functions enable users to automate tasks, manipulate data, and analyze information efficiently.

Data analysis: Data analysis involves examining and interpreting data to uncover meaningful insights and patterns. By measuring this skill, recruiters can assess a candidate's ability to extract valuable information from raw data, make informed decisions, and identify trends.

Data visualization: Data visualization is the graphical representation of data and information. Measuring this skill allows recruiters to evaluate a candidate's proficiency in creating clear and visually appealing visualizations, which can aid in presenting data in a way that is easily understandable and helps facilitate decision-making.

Formulas and calculations: Formulas and calculations are mathematical expressions that are applied to numerical data in a spreadsheet. Assessing this skill helps recruiters gauge a candidate's competency in using formulas and performing calculations accurately and efficiently.

Formatting cells: Formatting cells involves modifying the appearance and style of cells to improve readability and presentation. This skill assessment helps recruiters understand a candidate's ability to apply formatting techniques such as adjusting font size, applying borders, and adding color to cells effectively.

Collaboration features: Collaboration features in Google Sheets enable multiple users to work on the same spreadsheet simultaneously, facilitating real-time collaboration and communication. Measuring this skill allows recruiters to assess a candidate's familiarity with these features and their ability to collaborate effectively with team members.

Data sorting and filtering: Data sorting involves arranging data in a specified order, while filtering allows users to display only specific subsets of data based on specified criteria. By assessing this skill, recruiters can evaluate a candidate's competence in organizing and manipulating data to extract relevant information quickly and accurately.

Importing and exporting data: Importing and exporting data involves transferring data between Google Sheets and other applications or file formats. Measuring this skill helps recruiters determine a candidate's proficiency in handling data importing and exporting tasks, which are essential for seamless data integration and analysis.

Managing sheets and workbooks: Managing sheets and workbooks involves organizing and maintaining multiple sheets and workbooks within a Google Sheets project. Assessing this skill allows recruiters to evaluate a candidate's ability to effectively structure and manage complex spreadsheet projects, ensuring data integrity and ease of navigation.

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.
