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.

Why we started Adaface
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.

Solve
You are developing a Shopify theme and using Liquid, Shopify's templating language. In your template, you have written the following pseudo code:
 image
The code should display the collection and product headings for each product and then print the heading of the last product in each collection. However, after running this code, the 'Last product' print statement for each collection shows 'Product: ' but no product title. What is causing this issue?
A: You can't reassign the 'global_var' inside the 'for' loop.
B: The 'capture' block doesn't create a new scope for its content.
C: The 'product_heading' variable is not accessible outside its 'capture' block.
D: The 'collection_heading' variable should be assigned globally.
E: You can't use the 'assign' statement inside a 'for' loop.

Checkout API
Solve
You are a developer for Kylie Cosmetics Shopify App. To create a new checkout, you can send a POST request to the admin/checkouts.json endpoint. If you sent the following JSON string to the endpoint, what would be returned? (Assume that variant_id is correct)
 image
A: An error, as the checkout object is missing parameters necessary to process the customer’s payment

The Deceptive Discount
Liquid

Solve
You are creating a Shopify theme and implementing a feature to provide a discount to customers. Your store has a promotional offer where if the total cost of the items in a cart is above $500, a discount of 10% is applied, else, a 5% discount is applied.

You've written the following pseudo code in Liquid Templating language:
 image
You have the following logs with output from different statements:

1. cart.total_price for a $400 purchase -> 40000
2. 'times' filter with 40000 and 0.10 -> 4000
3. cart.total_price for a $500 purchase -> 50000
4. 'times' filter with 50000 and 0.10 -> 5000
5. cart.total_price for a $600 purchase -> 60000
6. 'times' filter with 60000 and 0.10 -> 6000

After reviewing these logs, you realize that the discount is not being calculated correctly. What could be the reason?
A: The 'times' filter is not working properly.
B: The 'money' filter is not converting the discount to the right format.
C: The 'assign' statement is not assigning the right values.
D: The 'total_price' of the cart is not being fetched correctly.
E: The comparison operator in the 'if' condition is incorrect.

Registration Queue
Logic
Queues
Solve
We want to register students for the next semester. All students have a receipt which shows the amount pending for the previous semester. A positive amount (or zero) represents that the student has paid extra fees, and a negative amount represents that they have pending fees to be paid. The students are in a queue for the registration. We want to arrange the students in a way such that the students who have a positive amount on the receipt get registered first as compared to the students who have a negative amount. We are given a queue in the form of an array containing the pending amount.
For example, if the initial queue is [20, 70, -40, 30, -10], then the final queue will be [20, 70, 30, -40, -10]. Note that the sequence of students should not be changed while arranging them unless required to meet the condition.
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The first line of the input is the length of the array. The second line contains all the elements of the array.
- The input is already parsed into an array of "strings" and passed to a function. You will need to convert string to integer/number type inside the function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.

For the example discussed above, the input will be:
5
20 70 -40 30 -10

Your code needs to print the following to the standard output:
20 70 30 -40 -10

Visitors Count
Strings
Logic
Solve
A manager hires a staff member to keep a record of the number of men, women, and children visiting the museum daily. The staff will note W if any women visit, M for men, and C for children. You need to write code that takes the string that represents the visits and prints the count of men, woman and children. The sequencing should be in decreasing order. 
Example:

Input:
WWMMWWCCC

Expected Output: 
4W3C2M

Explanation: 
‘W’ has the highest count, then ‘C’, then ‘M’. 
⚠️⚠️⚠️ Note:
- The input is already parsed and passed to a function.
- You need to "print" the final result (not return it) to pass the test cases.
- If the input is- “MMW”, then the expected output is "2M1W" since there is no ‘C’.
- If any of them have the same count, the output should follow this order - M, W, C.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Shopify 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.

Science behind Adaface tests
Reason #6

1 click candidate invites

Email invites: You can send candidates an email invite to the Shopify 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.

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.
