How we design questions

Test candidates on core SAP HCM Hiring Test topics

SAP Portals: SAP Portals is a platform that allows users to access and interact with SAP applications and data through a web-based interface. It provides a unified view of information from various SAP modules, enabling users to perform tasks and access information efficiently. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's proficiency in navigating and utilizing SAP Portals for HR-related tasks.

SAP HCM Module: The SAP HCM (Human Capital Management) module is a comprehensive solution for managing various HR processes within an organization. It covers functionalities such as personnel administration, organizational management, time management, payroll, and more. Assessing this skill in the test helps gauge the candidate's understanding and ability to work with the different components and functionalities of the SAP HCM module.

Cross Application Time Sheets (CATS): Cross Application Time Sheets (CATS) is a feature of SAP HCM that allows employees to record and manage their working hours and activities. It enables accurate time tracking and integration with other HR processes such as payroll and project management. Including this skill in the test helps evaluate the candidate's proficiency in using CATS and their understanding of time management processes in SAP HCM.

Personnel Administration: Personnel Administration is a key component of SAP HCM that deals with managing employee master data, personnel records, and organizational structures. It involves tasks such as hiring, onboarding, employee transfers, promotions, and terminations. Measuring this skill in the test assesses the candidate's knowledge and proficiency in executing personnel administration tasks using SAP HCM.

Payroll Management: Payroll Management in SAP HCM involves configuring and processing employee payroll, including salary calculations, tax deductions, and benefit administration. It ensures accurate and timely payment of employees' wages. Evaluating this skill in the test helps determine the candidate's understanding of payroll processes and their ability to perform payroll management tasks effectively using SAP HCM.

Employee Master Data: Employee Master Data refers to the comprehensive information about employees stored in the SAP HCM system. It includes personal details, employment history, qualifications, and other relevant information. Testing this skill assesses the candidate's ability to manage and maintain accurate employee master data in SAP HCM, which is crucial for various HR processes and reporting.

Reporting and Analytics: Reporting and Analytics in SAP HCM involves extracting, analyzing, and visualizing HR-related data to support decision-making and monitor key HR metrics. It includes creating and customizing reports, using data analysis tools, and interpreting HR analytics. Measuring this skill in the test evaluates the candidate's competency in generating meaningful insights and reports from HR data using SAP HCM functionalities.

What roles can I use the SAP HCM Assessment Test for?

Can I see a sample test, or do you have a free trial?


The free trial includes one sample technical test (Java/ JavaScript) and one sample aptitude test that you will find in your dashboard when you sign up. You can use it to review the quality of questions and the candidate experience of giving a test on Adaface.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

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.

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.
