How we design questions

Test candidates on core Progress Developer Hiring Test topics

Compile and Run-time Execution: This skill involves understanding the process of converting source code into executable code and executing it on a computer system. It is important to measure this skill in the test as it assesses the candidate's ability to write error-free code and troubleshoot runtime issues.

ChUI projects: In this skill, candidates should be familiar with creating character-based user interface projects using Progress Developer Studio. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's ability to design and develop user-friendly command line applications.

Browse Widget: The Browse Widget is a graphical user interface element used for displaying and interacting with tabular data in Progress applications. Measuring this skill in the test helps to assess the candidate's proficiency in creating and manipulating browse widgets as part of the user interface design.

Progress Lock application: Progress Lock is a feature in Progress applications that provides a simple and efficient way to implement mutual exclusion and synchronization among multiple processes. Testing this skill helps evaluate the candidate's understanding of concurrent programming concepts and the ability to implement thread-safe code.

OpenEdge debugger tasks: This skill covers the usage of the OpenEdge debugger for identifying and fixing errors in Progress applications. Measuring this skill in the test assesses the candidate's proficiency in debugging techniques and the understanding of the application's control flow.

Scope of frames: The scope of frames refers to the visibility and accessibility of variables and objects within different frames of a Progress application. Evaluating this skill helps gauge the candidate's understanding of scoping rules and their ability to manage data flow across frames.

Frame execution: Frame execution is the process of executing frames in a predetermined order to achieve specific functionalities in a Progress application. Testing this skill measures the candidate's competency in managing the sequence of frame execution and ensuring the proper flow of control within the application.

The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

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.

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.
