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 SAP ABAP Online Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Binary Search
Here's a sample ABAP code written to accept a list of numbers, a search input and to perform binary search on it. Analyze the code thoroughly and pick the correct statements:
A: If the array (internal table) supplied is 0 4 7 10 14 23 45 47 53 and the search input is 47,  the program prints "Success"
B:  If the array (internal table) supplied is 0 4 7 10 14 23 45 47 53 and the search input is 47,  the program prints "Error"
C:  If the array (internal table) supplied is 0 4 7 10 14 23 45 47 53 and the search input is 47,  the program goes into endless loop
D: If the array (internal table) supplied is 0 4 7 10 14 23 45 47 53 and the search input is 27,  the program prints "Success"
E:  If the array (internal table) supplied is 0 4 7 10 14 23 45 47 53 and the search input is 27,  the program prints "Error"
F:  If the array (internal table) supplied is 0 4 7 10 14 23 45 47 53 and the search input is 27,  the program goes into endless loop

Data Processing in ABAP
SQL Joins
Internal Tables
In the given ABAP pseudo code, data from two tables `zemployee` and `zdepartment` is being retrieved and processed. The code aims to handle records from employees in the 'Sales' department with a salary greater than 5000. Consider the efficiency and optimization of the code:
The goal is to optimize the code for performance, especially considering the potential size of the data in the tables. Which of the following options would be the most effective optimization?
A: Replace nested IF with a single IF statement using AND.
B: Use a JOIN statement in SELECT to combine tables and directly apply the conditions for 'Sales' department and salary > 5000.
C: Implement a secondary index on zemployee for the salary field.
D: Use FOR ALL ENTRIES instead of nested SELECT statements.
E: Optimize the READ TABLE statement with a binary search.
F: Change LOOP AT it_employee to a parallel cursor technique.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment SAP ABAP 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?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
