Adaface NoSQL Test is the most accurate way to shortlist NoSQL DataBase Engineers

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The NoSQL Online 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 at the first step of the hiring process.

The test screens for the following skills that hiring managers look for in candidates:

  • Ability to design and implement column-store systems
  • Experience in developing document-store ID store systems
  • Understanding of key-value solutions and their implementation
  • Proficiency in column-store solutions for efficient data storage
  • Knowledge in document store IT solutions for seamless document management
  • Familiarity with graph-based solutions for effective data representation
  • Expertise in key-value store solutions for quick data retrieval
Reason #2

No trick questions

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.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment NoSQL 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.

About the NoSQL Assessment Test

Why you should use Pre-employment NoSQL Online Test?

The NoSQL Assessment Test makes use of scenario-based questions to test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge, ensuring that candidates who do well on this screening test have the relavant skills. The questions are designed to covered following on-the-job aspects:

  • Designing and implementing Column-Store system
  • Document-Store Id store system implementation
  • Creating Key-value solutions
  • Optimizing Column-Store solutions
  • Developing Document Store IT Solutions
  • Implementing Graph-Based Solutions
  • Building Key-value store solutions
  • Managing data in Column-Store system
  • Implementing Document-Store Id store system
  • Troubleshooting Key-value solutions

Once the test is sent to a candidate, the candidate receives a link in email to take the test. For each candidate, you will receive a detailed report with skills breakdown and benchmarks to shortlist the top candidates from your pool.

What topics are covered in the NoSQL Online Test?

  • Column-Store system

    The Column-Store system is a database management system that stores data in columns instead of rows. This structure allows for faster data retrieval and analysis, especially for large datasets, as it only reads the columns needed, minimizing disk I/O and improving query performance.

  • Document-Store Id store system

    A Document-Store Id store system is a database management system that stores and retrieves data in a document-oriented format, where each document is identified by a unique document identifier (ID). This allows for flexible and scalable data storage, as data is stored in a schema-less manner, accommodating varying data structures and types within each document.

  • Key-value solutions

    Key-value solutions are data storage and retrieval systems that use a simple key-value pair structure, where each piece of data is associated with a unique key. This approach enables rapid data access and retrieval, making it ideal for caching, session management, and other scenarios where quick look-up operations are required.

  • Graph-Based Solutions

    Graph-based solutions are database management systems that use graph structures to represent and store data. Graphs consist of nodes (representing entities or objects) and edges (representing relationships between nodes). This approach enables efficient querying and analysis of complex relationships and interconnected data, making it suitable for social networks, recommendations, and network analysis.

  • Column-Store solutions

    Column-Store solutions are database management systems that store data in a columnar format, rather than the traditional row format. This organization allows for higher compression rates and improved query performance, as only the necessary columns are read during query execution. Column-Store solutions are particularly beneficial for data analytics and reporting, where aggregated queries over large datasets are common.

  • Document Store IT Solutions

    Document Store IT Solutions are database management systems that focus on storing and retrieving data in a flexible and self-describing format, such as JSON or XML. This allows for the storage of semi-structured and structured data, facilitating dynamic schema evolution and supporting rapid development and iteration cycles.

NoSQL 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.
