Test candidates on core IBM RPG 400 Hiring Test topics

BCAT Function: The BCAT function in IBM RPG 400 is used to concatenate two or more character strings together. It takes multiple character expressions as input and returns a single character expression. This skill is important to measure in the test as it demonstrates the candidate's ability to manipulate character data in RPG 400.

ICOPY Directives: ICOPY directives in IBM RPG 400 are used to copy values from one data structure to another. They allow for quick and efficient copying of data within the program. Measuring this skill in the test is crucial as it assesses the candidate's understanding of data manipulation and efficiency in RPG 400 programming.

EXFMT Operation: The EXFMT operation in IBM RPG 400 is used to display and format screens or printer files. It allows for interactive prompting and input validation. Including this skill in the test is important to evaluate the candidate's ability to create user-friendly interfaces in RPG 400 applications.

Commands: Commands in IBM RPG 400 are used to control the flow of the program and perform various actions. They include conditional statements, looping constructs, and input/output operations. Assessing this skill in the test is essential to gauge the candidate's proficiency in using RPG 400 commands to control program execution.

Keywords: Keywords in IBM RPG 400 are predefined terms that have special meaning when used in the program. They provide specific functionality and are essential for programming in RPG 400. Measuring this skill in the test helps determine the candidate's familiarity with important keywords and their ability to effectively utilize them in RPG 400 programming.

What roles can I use the IBM RPG 400 Assessment Test for?

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.
