How do you customize the test for Senior Informatica developers?

Questions in the Senior Informatica developer test will be based on advanced topics that require candidates to have a few years of hands-on experience with Informatica. Here are some advanced topics that are specific to intermediate/ experienced Adaface Informatica tests:

  • Applying PowerCenter Performance Tuning Methodology
  • Using the Lookup transformation in Dynamic mode
  • Normalizing and Denormalizing data using PowerCenter
  • Making use of the PowerCenter source-based, target-based, and user-based transaction control
  • Designing error handling strategies appropriate for the intended purpose of a workflow
  • Utilizing constraint-based loading in databases with referential integrity constraints
  • Using the Transaction Control transformation for data-driven RDBMS transaction control
  • Determining the proper use of built-in and optional, mapping-design recovery capabilities
  • Calculating how much memory a session uses and tuning session-level memory
  • Applying partitions, distributing the data, and optimising the CPU memory usage

Distribution Of Test Scores

The actual score distribution will vary based on your candidate pipeline quality, but you should typically expect ~20% of the candidates to do well on Adaface assessments.

The score distribution for our assessments follow the normal curve. This is a good sign- standardized tests like SAT and GRE follow the normal distribution (bell curve).

Status quo assessments typically have the exact opposite of the bell curve (too many candidates getting close to 0, too many candidates getting close to 100 and too few candidates in the middle). This is typically because they focus on theoretical questions or trick questions, which are very binary in nature- either you know the trick/ theory or you don’t.

How Adaface Is Different

Adaface conversational assessments are reflective of on-the-job skills and see an 86% completion rate as compared to ~50% for traditional assessment platforms.

How is Adaface different from other assessment tools?

We believe that status quo tech assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate engineers because they focus on trick questions/ puzzles/ niche algorithms. We started Adaface to help companies find great engineers by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role. Read more about why we started Adaface.

Here's what's different with Adaface:

  • High quality non-googleable questions that test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge.
  • A friendly conversational assessment with a chatbot, instead of sending a "test" to a candidate. This translates to a higher completion rate. Adaface assessments (86% candidate completion rate), as opposed to traditional tests (40-50% candidate completion rate)
  • Customized assessments for 700+ skills at different experience levels.

Do you have any anti-cheating or proctoring features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagairism detection
  • Non-googleable questions
  • 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.

What is the cost of using this test?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?

The platform is completely self-serve, so here's one way to proceed:

  • You can sign up for free to get a feel for how it works.
  • The free trial includes one sample assessment (Java/ JavaScript) 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 a conversational test on Adaface.
  • To review the quality of questions, you can also review our public questions for 50+ skills here.
  • Once you're convinced that you want to try it out with real assessments and candidates, you can pick a plan according to your requirements.
