Adaface Logical Reasoning Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Data Analysts



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Logical reasoning test is developed by our team of subject matter experts that follows strict guidelines for ensuring accuracy, fairness and reliability to deliver high-quality assessments. We leverage decades of research and cutting-edge predictive analytics to create logical reasoning questions that match your company's role requirements. The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for the role. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Logical Reasoning Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the aptitude skills to do well on the job.

The test includes questions about figures, definitions, and relationships between ideas. The candidates are evaluated on how they reached a conclusion and why the decision is correct. These tests can distinguish between candidates who have the logical reasoning skills to do well on the job versus those who do not.

Logical reasoning tests are used for jobs in various fields such as IT, engineering, medicine, law, finance, accounting, marketing, sales etc. Organizations that assess the logical thinking skills of the candidates might gain the upper hand over other businesses because these skills are essential to jobs in any field and can help predict the long-term performance of candidates.

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 Logical Reasoning Test will be non-googleable.

                        A badminton coach was trying to put together a team of 4 players for a friendly badminton championship out of 7 players. R, S, T are the male players, and W, X, Y, Z are the female players. Note that all players have equal ability, and the team needs to have atleast 2 male players. While selecting the team we need to keep in mind that all 4 players should be able to play with each other. We also need to keep the following restrictions in mind:
                        
                        - R cannot play with Y
- S cannot play with W
- T cannot play with Z
                        Which of the following are true:

A: S and Z cannot be in the team together.

                        A code ("EIG AUC REO RAI COG") was sent to the criminal office by a CID agent named Batra. However, four of the five words are fake, with only one containing the information. They also included a clue in the form of a sentence: "If I tell you any character of the code word, you will be able to tell how many vowels there are in the code word." Are you able to figure out what the code word is?

Positive correlation
Solve
                        Myra is working on her thesis for which she created a scatter plot of the number of teachers and the number of college graduates for cities in Australia. She noticed a positive correlation. Which of these do you think is the probable explanation for this correlation?
                        
                        A: Teachers encourage people to go to college, so an increase in the number of teachers leads to an increase in the number of college graduates. 

B: Some college graduates choose teaching as a profession after graduating, so an increase in the number of college graduates also leads to an increase in the number of teachers.

C: There are more college graduates and teachers in higher income cities, so income is a confounding variable here, make it difficult to prove causation between number of teachers and number of college graduates.

D: Cities with a higher population have more teachers and more college graduates, so the correlation is due to a third variable (population of city).

E: The provided data is insufficient, so it is extremely difficult to establish the reason for the correlation.

F: Most college students choose non-teaching professions after graduating, which explains the correlation.

G: In Australia, college students are encouraged by their teachers to choose teaching as a profession after graduating.

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.

Reason #6

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

Reason #7

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Logical Reasoning 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

What is the format of the logical reasoning test?

The standard logical reasoning test will have 10-15 MCQ questions and takes 20-30 minutes. The questions and the test can customized according to your requirements, to test multiple skills (like spatial reasoning, verbal reasoning, numerical reasoning etc) in the same test.

Why should you use logical reasoning tests?

Logical reasoning online tests help identify candidates who excel in certain areas, such as problem-solving, decision making and critical thinking. These tests are often used to evaluate candidates for jobs where logic plays a crucial part.

Recruiters use logical reasoning tests to collect quantitative data about the candidates and compare the results with others. A well-designed Logical reasoning test should help employers filter out candidates who fail to meet minimum requirements and those who may lack the skill set to perform specific tasks effectively.

Types of logical reasoning tests and what competencies does the logical reasoning test measure?

There are five types of logical reasoning tests:

  • Inductive reasoning tests: In these tests, candidates might be asked to identify the pattern in a series of diagrams, or candidates might be asked to predict what could happen if something were to occur.
  • Diagrammatic reasoning tests: For this type of logical reasoning, tests often show a sequence of diagrams, charts and graphs, along with an input and an expected output.
  • Abstract reasoning tests: These tests are designed to assess whether candidates can think laterally. The idea behind them is simple: if candidates can see the relationship between two things, then they should be able to apply that same logic to another situation or find evidence supporting an argument.
  • Deductive reasoning tests: These tests assess a candidate's ability to apply rules to new situations.
  • Critical thinking tests: These tests evaluate candidates' reasoning skills by seeing how well they can analyze arguments, make inferences and evaluate conclusions.

What roles can I use the Logical Reasoning Test for?

  • Data Analyst
  • Graduates
  • Freshers
  • Managers
  • System Admin
  • Front-office roles

Logical Reasoning Test FAQs

What is a logical reasoning test?

The Logical Reasoning test assesses candidates' ability to think logically, analyze and work out problems without getting confused or stressed—the test measures a candidate's capability to solve a problem and understand why and how the solution works.

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.
