Adaface SSRS Online Test is the most accurate way to shortlist SSRS Developers

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The SSRS 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.

The Adaface SSRS Online Test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for SSRS Developer roles:

  • Previous experience developing sophisticated SSRS reports on large data sets
  • Prior installation, administration, and maintenance of MS SQL Server and SSRS infrastructure
  • Superior organisational, verbal, and written communication abilities
  • The ability to set systemic requirements for reports to assure maintainability and to undertake acceptance testing
  • Proven track record of finding and fixing issues in complicated reports
  • Capability to establish monitoring needs and develop alert handling processes

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for SSRS Developer roles. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The SSRS Online Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the skills to do well on the job.

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.

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.

These are just a small sample from our library of 10,000+ questions. The actual questions on this SSRS Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Report Model
We set up a SQL Server 2008 Reporting Services (SSRS) instance of report model for our company. In the Report Builder tool, the users should need to create their SSRS reports. The data source will include a Microsoft SQL Server 2008 database which includes 950 tables. We need to design the report model for users, and allow access to only 14 tables which they require for reporting. What should we do?

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment SSRS 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

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

About SSRS Developer Roles

SSRS creates and distributes a wide range of interactive and printed reports. Companies that use SQL reporting services in conjunction with SQL Server have a single solution for report design and data warehousing.

An SSRS report developer manages the database and data flow inside this platform. In this capacity, you create software and set up reporting services tools so that the client or employer may utilise SSRS for their requirements, such as assessing product trends or studying consumer purchase history.

Typical SSRS Developer responsibilities include:

  • Create, test, and deliver SSRS reports to production environments
  • Communicate with report consumers and other stakeholders to elicit and record reporting needs, as well as to provide relevant solutions
  • Create reporting needs and get approval from corporate stakeholders
  • Create mock-ups and prototypes for reports
  • Assist QC Engineers in developing and implementing report testing methodologies
  • SSRS server installation, management, and configuration
  • Provide Level 2 support and fulfilment of service requests for reports
  • Create and manage reporting and SSRS infrastructure operating procedures and support documentation
  • Proactive participation in ongoing work to enhance SSRS reports and their functionality

The hiring managers felt that through the technical questions that they asked during the panel interviews, they were able to tell which candidates had better scores, and differentiated with those who did not score as well. They are highly satisfied with the quality of candidates shortlisted with the Adaface screening.

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.

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
  • Web proctoring
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser

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.

What is the cost of using this test?

You can check out our pricing plans.

Can I get a free trial?

Yes, you can sign up for free and preview this test.
