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.

Why we started Adaface
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 Salesforce Administrator Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Import records
Data Management
Adaface uses Sales CRM to maintain lead records. Adaface received two new lists of lead records:

- List 1 contains 13,459 records
- List 2 contains 3.2 million records
List 1 comes from an unclean source and likely has many duplicate records. Which of the following would be best suited to import these lists into Salesforce?


Page layouts and Records
Adaface uses Salesforce CRM for managing the sales process. The sales team is divided into Team A and Team B. Team A focuses on first two stages of the opportunity. Team B which has senior sales representatives focuses on last three stages of the opportunity. As a Salesforce admin at Adaface, you are tasked with the following requirement:
- Team A should only have access to first two stages on Opportunity records. Other stages must be hidden for Team A.
- Team B should have access to final three stages on Opportunity records.
How do you achieve this?


Time-based workflow
Adaface uses Salesforce time-based workflow actions. Here is a new time-based workflow action added to Adaface Salesforce CRM: Generate critical date reminders to remind Opportunity owners when a large Opportunity (amount greater than $1M USD, Status not equals to Closed Won, Closed Lost) is 14 days away from the intended Close Date.
Before the action is recorded, there is already a previously created record X that fits the criteria.
After the action is created, there is a new record Y that fits the criteria created on Sept 1st with Close Date set to Sept 30th. The time-dependent action is scheduled for Sept 16th and is visible in the workflow queue. Before Sept 16th, the record Y is updated and marked as Closed. 
Pick the correct statements:

A: Once the rule is activated, a new workflow action for record X is added to the queue
B: Workflow action for record X would not be added to the queue
C: Workflow action for record Y will still be in the queue after the record is updated and it will fire as originally scheduled on Sept 16th
D: Workflow action for record Y will be removed from the queue automatically after the record is updated since the criteria for the action is no longer valid
E: When record Y is updated, a confirmation window informs that there is a pending action and user will be prompted if they want to remove the action from the queue or allow it to remain

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Salesforce Administrator 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.

    Browser events and controllers are essential skills in Salesforce administration. Browser events allow developers to respond to user actions, such as button clicks or input changes, within a web application. Controllers are responsible for handling the logic and data manipulation in Salesforce applications. Testing knowledge in this area helps recruiters assess a candidate's ability to effectively control user interactions and handle events within the Salesforce platform.

    Lightning-enabled features are an important aspect of Salesforce administration. Lightning Experience is a modern and responsive user interface that enhances user productivity and provides a seamless experience across devices. Testing knowledge of these features allows recruiters to evaluate a candidate's proficiency in utilizing the Lightning framework to build efficient and intuitive user interfaces in Salesforce.

  • Integration and Data Management

    Integration and data management skills are crucial for Salesforce administrators as they involve the seamless flow of data between different systems. This includes integrating Salesforce with other applications, managing data imports and exports, and ensuring data integrity and security. Testing these skills helps recruiters assess a candidate's ability to design and implement effective data integration and management strategies within Salesforce.

  • Workflow automation

    Workflow automation is a fundamental skill in Salesforce administration. It involves designing and implementing automated processes, such as email alerts, field updates, and approval processes, to streamline business workflows. Assessing this skill allows recruiters to gauge a candidate's proficiency in creating efficient and error-free workflows that improve operational efficiency and enhance user experience.

  • Reports and dashboards

    Reports and dashboards are essential tools for data analysis and visualization in Salesforce. These features enable users to gain insights into business performance, track key metrics, and make data-driven decisions. Evaluating knowledge in this area helps recruiters assess a candidate's ability to design and customize reports and dashboards to meet the specific analytical needs of an organization.

  • Security and user management

    Security and user management skills are critical for Salesforce administrators as they involve ensuring the integrity and confidentiality of data within the platform. This includes managing user permissions, defining data access rules, and implementing security controls to protect sensitive information. Testing these skills allows recruiters to evaluate a candidate's ability to establish and maintain robust security measures within Salesforce.

  • Data import and export

    Data import and export skills are important for Salesforce administrators as they facilitate the seamless movement of data in and out of the platform. This includes importing data from external sources, exporting data for analysis or backup purposes, and ensuring data accuracy and consistency. Assessing knowledge in this area helps recruiters gauge a candidate's proficiency in efficiently managing data migration and synchronization processes within Salesforce.

  • Salesforce objects and relationships

    Salesforce objects and relationships form the foundation of data organization and management within the platform. Understanding the various objects and their relationships allows administrators to design and configure customized solutions that align with the business requirements. Evaluating knowledge in this area helps recruiters assess a candidate's ability to effectively leverage Salesforce objects and relationships to build scalable and flexible data models.

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.
