How we design questions

Test candidates on core Sqoop Hiring Test topics

Sqoop-Based Connector: A Sqoop-Based Connector allows you to establish a connection between Sqoop, a data transfer tool for Hadoop, and other systems or databases. It enables you to efficiently import and export data between Hadoop and various data sources such as relational databases or mainframes. Measuring this skill in the test ensures that candidates have the knowledge to effectively utilize connectors to integrate Sqoop with different systems.

Disk I/O and Network I/O: Disk I/O refers to the reading and writing of data to and from storage devices, while Network I/O involves the transmission of data over a network. Both skills are crucial in the context of Sqoop as they directly impact the performance and efficiency of data transfers. Measuring these skills ensures that candidates understand how to optimize the usage of disk and network resources when using Sqoop for importing and exporting data.

MySQL Databases: MySQL is a widely used open-source relational database management system. In the context of Sqoop, knowing how to work with MySQL databases is essential as it allows seamless integration between Hadoop and MySQL. Measuring this skill ensures that candidates can properly configure and interact with MySQL databases using Sqoop commands.

Database Tables: Database tables are structured sets of data organized into rows and columns. In the context of Sqoop, understanding how to interact with database tables is critical as it enables the import and export of data between Hadoop and relational databases. Measuring this skill ensures that candidates are proficient in handling various operations related to database tables using Sqoop.

Sqoop Import and Export Commands: Sqoop provides a set of import and export commands that allow for data transfer between Hadoop and external systems or databases. Knowing how to effectively use these commands is vital when working with Sqoop. Measuring this skill ensures that candidates have a solid understanding of the different import and export options provided by Sqoop, enabling them to efficiently move data in and out of Hadoop.

What roles can I use the Sqoop 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.
