Adaface Oracle PL SQL Online Test is the most accurate way to shortlist candidates

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The PLSQL 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 Adaface PLSQL test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for PLSQL developer roles:

  • Knowledge of the Oracle database and tools
  • Understanding of PL/SQL functions, procedures, triggers, packages & performance tuning
  • Knowledge of the design and implementation of ETL approach via ORACLE built-in functions
  • Knowledge of data modeling, data analysis, design and implementation

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

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.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this Oracle PL SQL Online Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Sales Table
Here's a proposal for SALES table in Oracle SQL:
Of the following statements about creating SALES table and storing data, which are true?
A: The CUST_STATUS column would store exactly one character
B: The SALE_VALIDITY column would have a maximum size of one character
C: The CUST_CREDIT column would be able to store decimal values
D: The SALE_VALIDITY column would give an error


Users Table
Of the following CREATE ORACLE SQL queries, which all would create "users" table with columns user_id and login_id as unique and not null?

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Oracle PL SQL 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 #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Oracle PL SQL 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.

About PLSQL Developer Roles

PL/SQL is a procedural language that incorporates SQL statements into its syntax. The Oracle Database server compiles and stores PL/SQL programme units within the database. At runtime, both PL/SQL and SQL are executed within the same server process, resulting in maximum performance.

PL/SQL developers design systems and give assistance with the many programming modules available. They also collaborate with other developers and stakeholders to improve programme management. They are in charge of the organization's SQL packages. They also make suggestions for adjustments as necessary.

Typical PLSQL Developer responsibilities include:

  • Analyzing and ensuring efficient transition of all technical design documents and developing various SQL packages to provide support to all application developers
  • Monitoring and recommending changes if required to all PL/ SQL packages and providing stored procedures and designing and developing various relational database
  • Evaluating all architecture for Oracle applications and preparing layouts for all logical models and maintaining database objects for various application components
  • Designing and implementing various structures for all physical objects and recommending changes on applications through efficient statistical structures
  • Monitoring and identifying specific programming languages and recommending enhancement to all programs and evaluating all software resolution
  • Designing and analyzing all computer hardware, firmware and embedded systems and preparing and maintaining various reports for metrics
  • Collaborating with various departments and performing research on all data processing functions

What is the PL SQL assessment test?

The PL SQL online test assesses candidates' knowledge of PL/SQL & Oracle SQL Engine. This pre-employment assessment can be used by recruiters to determine which candidates have expertise with PL/SQL functions, procedures, triggers, packages & performance tuning.

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.
