What Are Conversational Assessments

Conversational assessments are the most candidate friendly way to get insights into a candidate's on-the-job skills and suitability for a role, while providing for a delightful candidate experience.

Candidates love conversational assessments because they are fast, intuitive and feel like an interview rather than a test.

Score Distribution

You should expect ~20% of the candidates to do well on Adaface assessments.

The score distribution for our assessments follow the normal curve. This is a good sign- tandardized tests like SAT and GRE follow the normal distribution (bell curve).

Status quo assessments typically have the exact opposite of the bell curve (too many candidates getting close to 0, too many candidates getting close to 100 and too few candidates in the middle). This is typically because they focus on theoretical questions or trick questions, which are very binary in nature- either you know the trick/ theory or you don’t.

FAQs

What is a custom assessment?

Every role is different and requires a custom assessment to identify top candidates efficiently. Adaface subject matter experts understand your job description/ role requirements and pick the most relevant questions from our library of 5000+ questions to create a technical assessment that helps you find the qualified candidates in your candidate pipeline quickly. All custom assessments are set up based on the job description, role requirements, must-have skills, experience level and salary range within a maximum of 48 hours and you will get an email notification once it goes live.

Check out a sample assessment here (no credit card required).

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.

How is Adaface different from other assessment tools?

We believe that status quo tech assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate engineers because they focus on trick questions/ puzzles/ niche algorithms. We started Adaface to help companies find great engineers by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role. Read more about what we do differently at Adaface here.

Do you have any anti-cheating features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  1. Web proctoring
  2. Webcam proctoring
  3. Plagairism detection
  4. Non-googleable questions
  5. Secure browser

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. As in an assessment is optimizing to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best developer for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 60%, 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 developer persona (our subject matter experts will pick the right questions for your assessment from our library of 5000+ questions). This assessment can be customized for Java developer roles for any experience level (unless the role is primarily a leadership/ non-programming role, we do not recommend you a use any automated assessments in that case).

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 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 an engineer. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment.

What is the cost for using the MySQL Online Test?

Please get in touch, we'll create a custom plan for you based on the number of assessments you need.

About The Role

MySQL is a relational database management system based on SQL – Structured Query Language. The application is used for a wide range of purposes, including data warehousing, e-commerce, and logging applications. The most common use for MySQL however, is for the purpose of a web database.

With the availability of extensive documentation, developing an application around MySQL is something many developers familiar with MySQL can do. However, managing MySQL instances while ensuring their performance, availability, and security is something only competent and responsible MySQL database administrators can do with elegance.

Typical responsibilities of a MySQL Developer include:

  • Constructing the MySQL database and maintaining it. 
  • Determine how data should be organized, who should have access to different data and how it should be displayed.
  • Help developers to optimize queries, stored procedure and database design
  • Design and develop data models and database architecture.
  • Handle common database procedures, such as upgrade, backup, recovery, migration, etc.
  • Prepare reports for databases and customize it for specific needs.
  • Provide training for users of the system and provide technical support if needed.
