Screen candidates with the highest quality 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.

How we design questions

Test candidates on core Gradle Hiring Test topics

Build automation: Build automation refers to the process of automating the creation and execution of software builds. It involves using tools and scripts to streamline and accelerate the build process, ensuring a consistent and efficient build environment.

Dependency management: Dependency management involves managing and resolving the different software dependencies required for a project. It ensures that all the necessary libraries, frameworks, and modules are correctly included and integrated into the project, enabling smooth development and deployment.

Plugin development: Plugin development involves creating custom plugins for Gradle, which extend its functionality and provide additional features or tasks. It allows developers to tailor Gradle to their specific project requirements, enhancing the build process and enabling advanced automation and customization.

Task configuration: Task configuration involves defining and configuring specific tasks in Gradle. A task represents a specific unit of work that Gradle can execute. By configuring tasks, developers can specify the exact actions, dependencies, and parameters associated with each task, ensuring precise control over the build process.

Gradle scripts: Gradle scripts are the files that define the build logic and structure of a Gradle project. These scripts use the Groovy or Kotlin programming languages to define and configure tasks, dependencies, and build customizations. Understanding Gradle scripts is vital for effectively managing and customizing the build process.

Build lifecycle: The build lifecycle refers to the sequence of events and phases that occur during the build process. It encompasses the various stages, such as initialization, configuration, task execution, and clean-up. Measuring knowledge of the build lifecycle helps assess an individual's understanding of the overall build process and their ability to optimize and troubleshoot build issues.

Build customization: Build customization involves tailoring the Gradle build to suit specific project requirements. It includes modifying build scripts, configuring tasks, customizing build variants, and adapting the build process to meet individual needs. Evaluating the ability to customize builds ensures that candidates are capable of adapting Gradle to different project scenarios and optimizing the overall development workflow.

Multi-module builds: Multi-module builds refer to projects that are composed of multiple interdependent modules, where each module contributes to the overall functionality of the project. Knowledge of multi-module builds is critical for managing complex projects, understanding module interactions, and ensuring efficient collaboration and release management.

Incremental builds: Incremental builds involve compiling and building only the changed or impacted parts of the project, rather than recompiling the entire codebase. It significantly reduces build times and improves developer productivity. Evaluating knowledge of incremental builds helps gauge an individual's proficiency in optimizing build performance and minimizing unnecessary build overhead.

Parallel execution: Parallel execution refers to the ability of Gradle to run multiple tasks concurrently, leveraging the available system resources and contributing to faster build times. Understanding parallel execution is crucial for maximizing build efficiency and scalability, particularly in large projects with extensive sets of tasks and dependencies.

Testing and debugging: Testing and debugging skills involve the ability to write and execute test cases, ensure code quality, and diagnose and troubleshoot build or runtime issues. Evaluating these skills helps assess a candidate's proficiency in ensuring software reliability, identifying and resolving problems, and maintaining a robust and error-free build and automation process.

Have questions about the Gradle Hiring Test?

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I customize the test?

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up within 48 hours 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. You can also customize a test by uploading your own questions.

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 Gradle Assessment Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • Full Stack Web Developer
  • Android Developer - Gradle
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.
