About the test:
The IBM BPM (Business Process Management) Online Test uses scenario-based MCQs to evaluate candidates on their proficiency in using the IBM BPM platform for business process automation and optimization. The test assesses candidates' ability to design and implement BPM solutions, model and automate business processes, and create and manage process dashboards and reports.

The IBM BPM 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 at the first step of the hiring process.
The test screens for the following skills that hiring managers look for in candidates:
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.Why we started Adaface
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
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!

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment IBM BPM 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.Science behind Adaface tests
Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the IBM BPM 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.
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.
The IBM BPM Test makes use of scenario-based questions to test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge, ensuring that candidates who do well on this screening test have the relavant skills. The questions are designed to covered following on-the-job aspects:
Once the test is sent to a candidate, the candidate receives a link in email to take the test. For each candidate, you will receive a detailed report with skills breakdown and benchmarks to shortlist the top candidates from your pool.
Business Objects is a feature in IBM BPM that allows the creation and management of reusable components, such as data objects, document types, and user interfaces. This skill should be measured in the test to assess a candidate's ability to design and implement Business Objects effectively, which is crucial for building scalable and maintainable process applications.
Webservice refers to the capability of IBM BPM to interact with external systems through web services. It involves designing, integrating, and consuming web services in process applications. Measuring this skill in the test is important to evaluate a candidate's proficiency in working with external systems and ensuring seamless integration in BPM solutions.
Tracking is the mechanism in IBM BPM that captures and records process instance data, allowing for process monitoring and analytics. Measuring this skill in the test helps assess a candidate's understanding of how to effectively configure and utilize tracking capabilities in IBM BPM, which is essential for ensuring process visibility and identifying areas for improvement.
Multi-instantiation refers to the ability to create multiple instances of a process or sub-process in IBM BPM. This skill should be measured in the test as it demonstrates a candidate's proficiency in designing and implementing complex process flows that involve parallel execution and concurrency, which is often required in real-world BPM scenarios.
Process Apps in IBM BPM are the building blocks of process-centric applications, encompassing all the components required for modeling, executing, and managing processes. Measuring this skill in the test helps evaluate a candidate's competence in developing robust and scalable process applications that meet business requirements, making it a crucial skill for BPM practitioners.
Time Schedule is a feature in IBM BPM that allows the scheduling and execution of tasks based on specific time-based criteria, such as deadlines or recurring intervals. Measuring this skill in the test is important to assess a candidate's ability to effectively utilize time-based process management capabilities in IBM BPM, enabling them to design and implement efficient and timely process workflows.
Documentation involves creating comprehensive and well-structured documentation for IBM BPM artifacts, such as process models, decision tables, and user interfaces. Measuring this skill in the test helps evaluate a candidate's attention to detail, organizational skills, and ability to produce clear and concise documentation, which is essential for ensuring proper understanding and maintenance of BPM solutions.
Error Handling involves designing and implementing mechanisms to handle exceptions and errors that may occur during the execution of BPM processes. Measuring this skill in the test allows for an assessment of a candidate's ability to identify potential error scenarios, implement appropriate error handling strategies, and ensure robustness and fault tolerance in BPM solutions.
The actual topics of the questions in the final test will depend on your job description and requirements. However, here's a list of topics you can expect the questions for IBM BPM Test to be based on.
For intermediate/ experienced candidates, we customize the assessment questions to include advanced topics and increase the difficulty level of the questions. This might include adding questions on topics like
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.
We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

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.
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.
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.
No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
