No trick questions

no trick questions

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.

View sample questions

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.

Reason #3

Non-googleable 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

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Jira Online Test will be non-googleable.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Jira Online 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.

What topics are covered in the Jira Online Test?

  • Scrum Fundamentals

    Scrum Fundamentals is about understanding the principles and framework of Scrum, a highly popular Agile project management methodology. It involves iterative and incremental development, self-organizing teams, time-boxed sprints, and continuous improvement. This skill should be measured in the test to assess the candidate's knowledge and ability to effectively apply Scrum practices in a Jira environment.

  • Kanban Flow

    Kanban Flow is a lean method for managing and improving work processes. It focuses on visualizing and optimizing the flow of work, limiting work in progress, and promoting continuous delivery. Measuring this skill in the test will help recruiters determine the candidate's understanding of Kanban principles and their ability to use Jira to implement and manage Kanban boards effectively.

  • Agile boards

    Agile boards in Jira are visual representations of work, allowing teams to track and manage their tasks and user stories. They provide real-time visibility and transparency, enabling efficient collaboration and progress tracking. This skill should be measured in the test to assess the candidate's proficiency in setting up and utilizing Agile boards, as well as their ability to configure and customize boards to meet the team's specific needs.

  • Backlogs and Sprints

    Backlogs and Sprints are fundamental aspects of Agile project management. Backlogs are prioritized lists of tasks or user stories that need to be completed, while Sprints are time-boxed iterations during which teams work on a set of tasks from the backlog. Measuring this skill in the test will help recruiters evaluate the candidate's understanding of backlog management, sprint planning, and execution using Jira's features and functionality.

  • Administering with Jira

    Administering with Jira involves managing and configuring the Jira software to meet the needs of the organization. This includes creating and managing projects, customizing workflows, setting up permissions and roles, and handling system administration tasks. Measuring this skill in the test will help assess the candidate's ability to effectively administer Jira and ensure optimal usage and configuration for the teams using the platform.

Jira Hiring Test FAQs

Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

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

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  • Non-googleable questions
  • IP proctoring
  • Screen proctoring
  • Web proctoring

  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser
  • Copy paste protection

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.
