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 Tableau Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question


Calculated Properties
Data Analysis
Here’s sample data imported into Tableau:
Assume only three rows of data is present in the source. Once the data is imported, we added to new calculated fields:

Measure 1 with the formula: SUM([Profit])/SUM([Sales])
Measure 2 with the formula: SUM([Profit]/[Sales])

If we dragged Profit, Sales, Measure 1 and Measure 2 in the viewer as shown here:
Pick the correct statements regarding columns Measure 1, Measure 2 and the row Grand total:
A: Values of Measure 1 would be 0.08, 0.075 and 0.1
B: Values of Measure 2 would be 0.08, 0.075 and 0.1
C: Values of Measure 1 would be 0.08, 0.769 and 0.08
D: Values of Measure 2 would be 0.08, 0.769 and 0.08
E: Values of Measure 1 would be 0.08, 0.155 and 0.255
F: Values of Measure 2 would be 0.08, 0.155 and 0.255
G: Grand total of Measure 1 would be 0.08
H: Grand total of Measure 2 would be 0.08
I: Grand total of Measure 1 would be 0.255
J: Grand total of Measure 2 would be 0.255

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

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

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.
