About the test:

The SharePoint Online Test uses scenario-based MCQs to evaluate candidates on their understanding of Microsoft SharePoint, a web-based collaboration and content management platform. The test assesses candidates on their knowledge of SharePoint features, such as site creation, document libraries, lists, and workflows, as well as their ability to customize and configure SharePoint sites and pages using web parts and apps.

Adaface Sharepoint Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Sharepoint Developers



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The Sharepoint Online Test helps recruiters and hiring managers identify qualified candidates from a pool of resumes, and helps in taking objective hiring decisions. It reduces the administrative overhead of interviewing too many candidates and saves time by filtering out unqualified candidates at the first step of the hiring process.

The test screens for the following skills that hiring managers look for in candidates:

  • Ability to create and manage SharePoint sites
  • Knowledge of SharePoint document libraries and lists
  • Understanding of SharePoint permissions and security
  • Familiarity with SharePoint workflows
  • Experience with SharePoint content types and metadata
  • Ability to customize SharePoint using web parts
  • Knowledge of SharePoint search capabilities
  • Understanding of SharePoint versioning and metadata navigation
  • Proficiency in SharePoint site navigation and site settings
  • Experience with SharePoint site templates and customization
Reason #2

No trick questions

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.

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 SharePoint Test will be non-googleable.

Content Query Web Part
Customization
Solve
You are working as a SharePoint Consultant and have been tasked to create a custom view for the Content Query Web Part (CQWP) on a client's SharePoint site. The client would like to display news articles, grouped by the month they were published in. The title, publish date, and author of each article should be displayed, along with the total number of articles for that month.
The following is a part of the XSLT code you are working with:
 image
Which modification should you make to the XSLT code to achieve the desired output?

A. Replace <xsl:param name="Month" /> with <xsl:param name="PublishDate" />

B. Add <xsl:value-of select="$RowCount" /> after the closing </h2> tag

C. Replace select="count($Rows[@Month = $Month])" with select="count($Rows[@PublishDate = $Month])"

D. Add <xsl:value-of select="substring(@Author, 0, 3)" /> after the closing </h2> tag

E. Add <xsl:value-of select="@Title" /> inside the <div class="monthGroupContent"> tag

Design Workflow
Workflows
REST
Solve
A SharePoint Consultant is designing a workflow for a document library using SharePoint Designer. The workflow needs to use an impersonation step to create a list item in a different site collection when a document is uploaded. The SharePoint Designer must use the REST API to accomplish this task.
Consider the following code snippet for the REST API call in the impersonation step:
 image
Which of the following actions should the consultant add to the impersonation step and configure the appropriate properties?

A: Add a 'Call HTTP Web Service' action, set the HTTP method to POST, set the REST endpoint URL, configure the request headers, and set the request body with the JSON payload

B: Add a 'Create List Item' action, set the target list URL, and set the item properties using the JSON payload

C: Add a 'Call HTTP Web Service' action, set the HTTP method to POST, set the REST endpoint URL, configure the request headers, and set the request body without the JSON payload

D: Add a 'Copy Document' action, set the target list URL, and set the item properties using the JSON payload

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment SharePoint 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

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.

Sharepoint Hiring Test 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. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

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
  • Screen proctoring
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser
  • Copy paste protection

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.

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?
