The QA Aptitude Online Test is ideal for helping recruiters evaluate candidates on the key skills required to be an effective software test engineer. It helps identify candidates who can apply their knowledge effectively on-the-job.

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.

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 Quality Assurance Aptitude Test will be non-googleable.

Database testcase
Regression Testing
Solve
Adaface is developing a new database system called “Helen”. The tester at Adaface developed the following testcase for regression testing:
1. Open Helen
2. Open “Students” database
3. Enter data for “Sid”
4. Set checkpoint
5. Store “Sid” data in “Students” 
6. Restart Helen
7. Read “Sid” data from “Students”
8. Compare checkpoint with the contents
When the tester ran the testcase the first time, it worked as expected. Pick the correct statements:

A: When the test case is ran the second time, the data entry for “Sid” already exists in the database. 
B: When the test case is ran the second time, it performs exactly as it did the first time

Algorithm and Testcase
Unreachable Code
Designing Testcases
Solve
Review the following algorithm to calculate the final bill in a store:
Algorithm: 

1. Each purchase has three amounts - base, special and extra
2. On the base amount - If there is a discount offer going on in the store, the discount is applied 
3. There are no discounts on the special amount
4. On the extra amount - customer is offered 19% discount if accrued credits are equal to or more than 25 or 10% if the accrued credits are equal to or more than 13. If the accrued credits are lesser than 13, no discount on the extra amount is offered. In case there is a discount offer going on in the store, the discount on extra amount calculated based on credits cannot be lesser than the discount offer.
Here is the code written by the developers for this algorithm:
 image
Here is the code the developers wrote to test the program when a customer has 13 credits and store offer is 0:

Pick the correct statements:

A: The code works correctly as expected without any defect
B: The program has unreachable code and generates faulty output when credits are ≥ 25
C: The testcase is written correctly and tests the test case as expected
D: The testcase need to be modified to account for imprecise rounding of floating numbers. Ex: (price == 12900.00) can be replaced with ((price - 12900.00) < 0.01)
E: The testcase need to be modified to account for imprecise rounding of floating numbers. Ex: (price == 12900.00) can be replaced with (abs(price - 12900.00) < 0.01)

Variables of interest
Data flow analysis
Solve
Adaface testing team does data flow analysis on the programs written by the development team. The testing team follows the following marking schema for the variables in a program:
Variables of interest in a code (possible states):
- d: variable is assigned a value
- r: value of variable is read
- u: variable has no defined value
Variables of interest in a code (marking schema):
- ur: undefined value of a variable is read on a program path r
- du: variable is assigned a value that becomes undefined/ invalid without having been used in the meantime
- dd: variable receives a value for the second time and the first value had not been used
Review the following program and pick the correct marking of the variables:

Badminton Players
Solve
A badminton coach was trying to put together a team of 4 players for a friendly badminton championship out of 7 players. R, S, T are the male players, and W, X, Y, Z are the female players. Note that all players have equal ability, and the team needs to have atleast 2 male players. While selecting the team we need to keep in mind that all 4 players should be able to play with each other. We also need to keep the following restrictions in mind:
- R cannot play with Y
- S cannot play with W
- T cannot play with Z
Which of the following are true:

A: S and Z cannot be in the team together.
B: T and Y cannot be in the team together.
C: T and X cannot be in the team together.

A code ("EIG AUC REO RAI COG") was sent to the criminal office by a CID agent named Batra.  However, four of the five words are fake, with only one containing the information. They also included a clue in the form of a sentence: "If I tell you any character of the code word, you will be able to tell how many vowels there are in the code word." Are you able to figure out what the code word is?
A: RAI 
B: EIG
C: AUC
D: REO
E: COG
F: None

Positive correlation
Solve
Myra is working on her thesis for which she created a scatter plot of the number of teachers and the number of college graduates for cities in Australia. She noticed a positive correlation. Which of these do you think is the probable explanation for this correlation?
A: Teachers encourage people to go to college, so an increase in the number of teachers leads to an increase in the number of college graduates. 

B: Some college graduates choose teaching as a profession after graduating, so an increase in the number of college graduates also leads to an increase in the number of teachers.

C: There are more college graduates and teachers in higher income cities, so income is a confounding variable here, make it difficult to prove causation between number of teachers and number of college graduates. 

D: Cities with a higher population have more teachers and more college graduates, so the correlation is due to a third variable (population of city).

E: The provided data is insufficient, so it is extremely difficult to establish the reason for the correlation.

F: Most college students choose non-teaching professions after graduating, which explains the correlation. 

G: In Australia, college students are encouraged by their teachers to choose teaching as a profession after graduating.

Brandon Lee, Head of People, Love, Bonito

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Quality Assurance Aptitude 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 Quality Assurance Aptitude 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 #7

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

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

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.
