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 Machine Learning in AWS Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question

Downtime and Workload
EC2
Solve
ChickTok is a dating app that runs on EC2 behind an ALB. The EC2 instances run in an EC2 Auto Scaling group across multiple AZ. On every Saturday night, the app becomes atleast 5 times slower. Upon investigation, it is found that the CPU utilization reaches 100% within a matter of seconds instead of being a gradual increment. This is happening due to a batch core dating algorithm update that happens on every Saturday 9PM. 
ChickTok wants a solution that

- Tackles the extra workload
- Avoids downtime

Solve
You work as a Solutions Architect for a data analysis firm. The company stores large datasets on Amazon S3, and you've been tasked with setting up an Amazon EC2 instance to process this data. The EC2 instance will fetch data from S3, process it, and then write the results back to a different S3 bucket.

To ensure security, the EC2 instance should not have direct internet access, and it should only be able to communicate with the S3 buckets. You've decided to place the EC2 instance in a VPC private subnet with a CIDR block of 10.0.1.0/24. The associated security group is set to deny all inbound traffic and allow all outbound traffic.

Which additional configuration should you make to enable the EC2 instance to access the S3 buckets while complying with the security requirements?
A: Modify the Network ACL of the subnet to allow outbound connections to the IP range of the S3 service.
B: Assign a Public IP to the EC2 instance and update the security group to allow inbound and outbound traffic to S3.
C: Add a NAT Gateway in the private subnet and update the route tables to direct S3 traffic to the NAT Gateway.
D: Create an S3 VPC Gateway Endpoint and update the route tables for the private subnet to direct S3 traffic to the VPC Endpoint.
E: Create a VPN connection from the VPC to the S3 buckets.

Orderly Restoration of RDS with Transaction Logs

Transaction Logs
Point-in-time recovery
Solve
You work as a database manager for a fintech company that uses an AWS RDS PostgreSQL instance. The company abides by stringent data security standards, which require minimal data loss in the event of database failures or accidental data modifications.

Unexpectedly, an operation that updates a significant number of records in a crucial transaction table is mistakenly run. You discover that this operation occurred at 12:45 PM. Your RDS PostgreSQL instance is configured to perform automated backups every day at 1:00 AM, with transaction logs being backed up every 5 minutes. Furthermore, there is a manual DB snapshot taken at 11:00 AM on the same day. 

To restore the database with minimal data loss, considering the sequence and order of log application, which of the following steps should you execute?
A: Restore from the manual DB snapshot at 11:00 AM, then perform a point-in-time recovery to 12:45 PM.
B: Perform a point-in-time recovery to 12:45 PM.
C: Restore from the last automated backup at 1:00 AM, then apply all transaction logs until 12:45 PM.
D: Restore from the manual DB snapshot at 11:00 AM, then apply transaction logs from 11:00 AM to 12:45 PM.
E: Perform a point-in-time recovery to 11:00 AM, then apply transaction logs from 11:00 AM to 12:45 PM.

SecureEC2Setup
EC2
Security Groups
VPC
Solve
As an AWS Cloud Engineer for a financial institution, you're setting up an EC2 instance in a VPC to host a web application that handles sensitive financial data. The EC2 instance is placed in a private subnet and associated with a security group that only allows inbound HTTPS (port 443) traffic from the internet. You have an Application Load Balancer (ALB) in a public subnet, which forwards incoming traffic to the EC2 instance.

However, during the testing phase, you find that the web application on the EC2 instance is not reachable from the internet, but works fine from within the VPC. 

What could be the reason for this?
A: The security group should allow inbound traffic from the ALB's security group, not the internet.
B: The ALB should be in the private subnet, not the public subnet.
C: EC2 instances hosting sensitive data cannot be reached through an ALB.
D: The ALB and EC2 instance must be in the same subnet.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Machine Learning in AWS 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.

Machine Learning in AWS Hiring Test FAQs

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. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

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
  • Webcam 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.

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.

I just moved to a paid plan. How can I request a custom assessment?
