Adaface Natural Language Processing (NLP) Test is the most accurate way to shortlist NLP Engineers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

Natural Language Processing (NLP) online test is designed and validated by industry experts to help tech recruiters and hiring managers assess NLP skills of the candidate. Top tech companies are using our NLP test to reduce candidate screening time by 85%.

The test is designed to filter out candidates for roles like

Data Scientist NLP Engineer Junior NLP Developer Deep Learning Engineer

The test ensures candidates have following traits:

  • Ability to write reusable code
  • Ability to design NLP applications
  • Experience with training the developed model and running evaluation experiments
  • Familiarity with extending ML libraries and frameworks to apply in NLP tasks
  • Excellent knowledge of Python/ R programming languages
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.

Reason #4

1200+ customers in 75 countries

Reason #5

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Natural Language Processing (NLP) 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.

Reason #6

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

Reason #7

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Natural Language Processing (NLP) 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


About The NLP Developer Role

Natural Language Processing, usually shortened as NLP, is a branch of artificial intelligence that deals with the interaction between computers and humans using the natural language. NLP is a way to extract meaning from human language to make decisions based on the information. This technology is still evolving, but there are already many incredible ways natural language processing is used today.

Today’s machines can analyze more language-based data than humans, without fatigue and in a consistent, unbiased way. Considering the staggering amount of unstructured data that’s generated every day, from medical records to social media, automation will be critical to fully analyze text and speech data efficiently.

NLP Engineers are responsible for the development and design of language understanding systems and for the effective use of text representation techniques.

Typical responsibilities of an NLP Developer include:

  • Analyze, design and implement strategies for search engines in Natural Language and strategies for data extraction
  • Build, train, refine and customise NLP models
  • Use knowledge in new techniques, technologies, standards and business trends to advise about potential benefits and impacts as well as to design and develop solutions
  • Define appropriate datasets for language learning
  • Train the developed model and run evaluation experiments
  • Maintain NLP libraries and frameworks

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.

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.
