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.

View sample questions

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.

How we design questions

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

🧐 Question


REST connector to load data
Try practice test
We are loading data from a third party source using a Qlik REST connector. Our use case requires that the REST endpoint be called multiple times and pass different values into a query parameter each time, so that we can retrieve all the data we require. The URL and the other query parameters remain the same between calls. We have already set up a REST connector with the appropriate URL and static query parameters.
We have stored the parameter values in a table in the data model. These values have been previously loaded and may change during each data reload. You are hired as the data architect to temporarily replace the previous architect who is currently on paternity leave. Which steps will you take to retrieve all data?


App requirements
Try practice test
Our client is a retailer with stores across the country has shared the following requirements for the Qlik Sense app we are building for them.

- Load data from SQL Server for 18 stores
- Load data from Oracle for 7 stores
- All data should be refreshed once per day
- Users must see details of every transaction
- Most users should only see data for their store
- Some users (management) will have access to all data

Which of these approaches do you recommend we take?

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Qlik Sense 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.

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?
