Adaface Salesforce Developer Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Salesforce Lightning Developers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Salesforce online assessment test helps recruiters and hiring managers identify qualified candidates from a pool of resumes and make objective hiring decisions. It reduces the administrative overhead of interviewing too many candidates and saves expensive engineering time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The Adaface Salesforce assessment test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for in a Salesforce developer:

  • Extensive experience with Triggers, Visual force, and Lightning Component
  • Knowledge of Apex for page creation/modification, as well as JavaScript and other similar technologies
  • Familiarity with Salesforce data migration, custom reporting, and translation workbench
  • Understanding of master-detail association and platform development basics
  • Experience with customizing various modules such as Sales Cloud & Service Clouds

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for the role. The Salesforce online test assesses applicants' knowledge of customizing and dealing with the complexities of the Salesforce app. It is an excellent pre-employment screening tool. Salesforce assessments measure the candidate's ability to customize the Salesforce software and model data using tools such as Visualforce and Apex.

Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The Salesforce developer test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the technical skills to do well 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 Salesforce Developer Test will be non-googleable.

Pick the correct statements:

A: Reports.add(a) is legal because CustomReport is a subclass of Report class. CustomReport can be added to a list of Reports.

B: Reports.add(a) is an illegal usage.

C: CustomReport c = Reports.get(0) is legal because CustomReport is a subclass of Report class.

D: CustomReport c = Reports.get(0) is illegal since the compiler does not know that the returning item is a CustomReport. CustomReport c = (CustomReport) Reports.get(0) is legal because casting tells the compiler what is being returned.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

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