Adaface Machine Learning Assessment Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Machine Learning Engineers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Machine Learning Assessment 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 time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The pre-employment machine learning assessment test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for Machine Learning developer roles:

  • Experience designing, developing, and researching Machine Learning models
  • Deep understanding of fundamental data structures and data modeling
  • Expertise in math, probability and statistics
  • Ability to write robust code
  • Experience with machine learning frameworks (like Keras, PyTorch, Tensorflow etc.) and libraries (like scikit-learn, Numpy, Pandas etc.)
  • Ability to choose hardware for running an ML model with the needed latency

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for Machine Learning developer roles. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Machine Learning Assessment Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the skills to do well on the job.

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.

Why we started Adaface ->
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 Machine Learning Assessment Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question

Hard

n-gram generator
Solve
Our newest machine learning developer want to write a function to calculate the n-gram of any text. An N-gram means a sequence of N words. So for example, "black cats" is a 2-gram, "saw black cats" is a 3-gram etc. The 2-gram of the sentence "the big bad wolf fell down" would be [["the", "big"], ["big", "bad"], ["bad", "wolf"], ["wolf", "fell"], ["fell", "down"]]. Can you help them select the correct function for the same?

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Machine Learning Assessment 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 #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Machine Learning Assessment 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.

Reason #7

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

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


About Machine Learning Developer Roles

Machine learning (ML) is a subset of artificial intelligence (AI) that enables software programmes to grow increasingly effective at predicting outcomes without explicitly programming them to do so. Machine learning algorithms estimate new output values by using past data as input.

A machine learning (ML) developer is an expert in training models with data. Following that, the models are utilised to automate activities such as image classification, speech recognition, and market forecasting.

A machine learning developer creates a solution that is unique to each situation. The only way to get the best results is to thoroughly process the data and use the appropriate algorithm for the current situation.

Typical Machine Learning Developer/Engineer responsibilities include:

  • Understanding corporate objectives and creating models to assist them be accomplished, as well as measurements to track their success
  • Managing available resources such as hardware, data, and staff in order to meet deadlines
  • Analyzing the ML algorithms that may be utilised to tackle a particular problem and evaluating them based on their likelihood of success
  • Exploring and visualising data
  • Verifying and/or assuring data quality through data cleansing
  • Locating public datasets that might be utilised for training
  • Developing Validation Methodologies
  • Specifying the preprocessing or feature engineering that will be performed on a given dataset
  • Creating pipelines for data augmentation
  • Analyzing the model's flaws and devising solutions to overcome them

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.
