About the test:

The Kotlin Online Test uses scenario-based and code tracing MCQ questions to evaluate a candidate's ability to use Kotlin basics (Variables, Strings), Kotlin Collections (List, Map, Set, Iterators), and Kotlin OOPs (classes, inheritance, interfaces) to develop null-safe, concise and readable Kotlin code. The test has coding questions to evaluate hands-on Kotlin programming skills.

Covered skills:

  • Kotlin basics (Variables; Strings; Functions)
  • Object-Oriented Programming (Classes; Inheritance)
  • Kotlin collections (Lists; Set; Maps; Iterators)
  • Reading and Writing Files

Adaface Kotlin Online Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Kotlin Developers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Kotlin Online 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 expensive engineering time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The Adaface Kotlin test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for in a Kotlin developer:

  • Kotlin fundamentals (variables, strings, operators)
  • Nullability
  • Collections (list, set, map)
  • Lambdas and higher-order functions (common higher-order functions)
  • Object-oriented programming principles (Classes, objects, inheritance, polymorphism, abstraction, encapsulation)
  • Class types (Data, Enum, Sealed, Nested)
  • Standard functions and extension functions
  • Coroutines and asynchronous programming
  • File I/O
  • Exceptions Handling

The Kotlin Online test is designed to test for Kotlin fundamentals and hands-on coding skills. If you would like to test Android skills, then we design a custom test to evaluate Kotlin and Android skills in the same assessment. You can review our Android test to get a sense of our Android questions.

Reason #2

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.

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.

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

                        A startup company E-Motors is building driverless automated cars. The car contains a sensor that checks the road quality for the next N meters to decide the optimal speed at which the cars should move. We are given recorded data by the sensor in the form of an array, where each element of the array is the rating given to 1 meter of the road in sequence. 

The rating given by the sensor is from 1 to 100, where 100 represents the road with the best condition, and any rating above 60 is optimal. Find the longest stretch of road in meters that is categorized as optimal by the sensor.

The input is an array of "strings" which needs to be converted from string to integer/number inside the function.

    1 click candidate invites

    Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Kotlin Online 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.

    Detailed scorecards & comparative results

    Reason #7

    Designed for elimination, not selection

    The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Kotlin 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.

    Reason #8

    High completion rate

    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.

    Reason #9

    Advanced Proctoring


    How is the test customized for Senior Kotlin Developers?

    The hiring managers felt that through the technical questions that they asked during the panel interviews, they were able to tell which candidates had better scores, and differentiated with those who did not score as well. They are highly satisfied with the quality of candidates shortlisted with the Adaface screening.

    Kotlin Online Test FAQs

    Can I evaluate Kotlin and Android in the same test?

    Yes. We support testing multiple skills in the same test. You can review our standard Android test to get a sense of what kind of questions will be included to test Android skills. The final test will include MCQ questions to evaluate Kotlin, Android and coding questions to evaluate Kotlin.

    Can I have Kotlin as an optional skill in the Android test?

    Yes. We design custom chat flows where a few skills can be optional. For Android roles, typically we design tests where candidates are given a choice to choose their preferred programming language between Java and Kotlin. The bot will ask questions only on the chosen programming language. The coding questions can be restricted to desired programming languages. In this case, the candidate can choose between Java and Kotlin to write the code.

    Can I combine multiple skills into one custom assessment?

    Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify.

    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
    • Web proctoring
    • Webcam proctoring
    • Plagiarism detection
    • 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?

    Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.
