Test candidates on core SAS Hiring Test topics

Message Queues: Message Queues are a form of asynchronous communication where messages are sent between applications or services. They serve as a buffer, allowing applications to communicate without requiring immediate responses. Measuring this skill in the test helps assess the candidate's understanding of handling asynchronous communication and designing robust and scalable systems.

Dimensions: In the context of data analysis, dimensions refer to the attributes or variables that describe the characteristics of data. Measuring this skill in the test allows recruiters to evaluate a candidate's ability to analyze and interpret data using various dimensions, such as time, location, and product categories.

Sorting Difficult: Sorting Difficult refers to the challenges faced while implementing sorting algorithms. It assesses a candidate's knowledge and understanding of different sorting techniques and their efficiency in terms of time and space complexity. Measuring this skill helps evaluate a candidate's problem-solving abilities and algorithmic thinking.

SAS metadata server: The SAS metadata server is a centralized repository that stores and manages metadata, such as definitions, configuration settings, and security information, for SAS applications and solutions. Measuring this skill in the test enables recruiters to assess a candidate's expertise in working with SAS metadata server, which is crucial for effective management and organization of SAS resources.

Job Status Manager: The Job Status Manager is a component of SAS that enables monitoring and tracking the execution status of scheduled jobs or processes. This skill measures a candidate's proficiency in utilizing the Job Status Manager to monitor job execution, troubleshoot issues, and ensure smooth workflow management.

Data Integration: Data Integration involves merging and consolidating data from multiple sources into a unified view. Measuring this skill in the test allows recruiters to assess a candidate's ability to integrate and transform data, ensuring data quality and consistency across various systems and applications.

Registering Tables and Cubes: Registering Tables and Cubes involves defining metadata for data tables and multidimensional cubes within SAS. Measuring this skill helps evaluate a candidate's proficiency in registering and managing data assets, enabling efficient data discovery, access, and analysis.

Application starting: Application starting refers to the process of initializing and launching an application. Measuring this skill in the test helps assess a candidate's understanding of application lifecycle, startup processes, and dependencies, ensuring smooth and efficient application execution.

How does pricing work?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Yes, absolutely. Custom assessments are set up based on your job description, and will include questions on all must-have skills you specify. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

What roles can I use the SAS Assessment Test for?

Here are few roles for which we recommend this test:

  • SAS DI Developer
  • SAS Developer - Data Integration
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.
