Adaface UI/UX Design Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Product Designers

Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The UI/UX Design 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 all candidates and saves time by filtering out unqualified candidates.

The Adaface UI/UX Design Test screens candidates for the typical skills recruiters look for UI/UX Designer roles:

  • Ability to create user-centric designs
  • Attention to detail and an eye for aesthetics
  • Ability to articulate ideas, designs, and suggestions
  • Ability to create user flows, wireframes, mockups and wireframes based on business requirements
  • Ability to translate requirements into style guides, design systems, design patterns and attractive interfaces
  • Experience troubleshooting UX issues
  • Experience designing UI elements like input controls, navigational components and informational components
  • Ability to collaborate effectively with engineering, product and management teams
  • Experience incorporating customer feedback, usage metrics, and usability findings into design

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify the best candidates for UI/UX Designer roles. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The UI/UX Design Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which designers 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.

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.

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

🧐 Question


Delete item popup
We recently added the feature to enable a user to delete items from their dashboard. The feature was built on the request of a customer who needed it urgently, so the product engineer was the one who designed it, without consulting a designer. Can you review the design and recommend any changes if required?


Music app design
We have hired a designer to create the design for our new music app. Can you review the design and point out the core issue? We are yet to add images, so you can ignore that aspect.


Video conference app UX
Sam is a freelancer working on a video conferencing app for one of their clients. They have created a few mockups. Could you help them choose which mockups they should send to the client?

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment UI/UX Design 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 UI/UX Design 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.
