Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Visual Basic 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.

What topics are covered in the Visual Basic Online Test?

  • VB Data Variables

    VB Data Variables are used to store data in a computer program. They are containers that can hold different types of values such as numbers, text, or dates. Measuring this skill in the test helps assess a candidate's ability to understand and manipulate data within a Visual Basic program.

  • Data Values

    Data Values are the actual information that is stored in a variable. They can be numeric, string, or other types of data. Evaluating a candidate's understanding of data values in Visual Basic is important to ensure they can correctly assign and manipulate data in their programs.

  • Data Types

    Data Types in Visual Basic define the type of data that a variable can hold. This includes primitive data types (such as integers or booleans) and user-defined types. Assessing a candidate's knowledge of data types is crucial in determining whether they can accurately define variables and handle different types of data.

  • Grand Total Decimal

    Grand Total Decimal refers to the ability to perform accurate calculations with decimal numbers in Visual Basic. As decimal data often plays a significant role in financial or analytical applications, measuring this skill ensures candidates are proficient in handling decimal values and can avoid potential calculation errors.

  • Types of Constant

    Types of Constant in Visual Basic refer to different categories of values that cannot be changed during program execution. These include numeric constants, string constants, and character constants. Evaluating a candidate's knowledge of the various types of constants helps determine their ability to correctly utilize and manipulate unchanging values in their programs.

  • Strings

    Strings in Visual Basic are sequences of characters used to represent text. They can be manipulated, concatenated, and compared. Assessing a candidate's understanding of strings is important in ensuring they can effectively manipulate and process textual data within their programs.

  • Identifiers

    Identifiers are names used to identify variables, functions, or other elements in a Visual Basic program. They must follow specific rules and conventions. Evaluating a candidate's familiarity with identifiers helps determine whether they can create meaningful and appropriate names for their program elements.

  • Containers

    Containers in Visual Basic are objects used to store and organize multiple values. They can be arrays, collections, or other data structures. Measuring a candidate's knowledge of containers helps assess their ability to work with complex data structures and efficiently manage multiple values in their programs.

  • Declaration Statement

    A Declaration Statement in Visual Basic is used to create a new variable and specify its data type. It informs the program that a new memory space should be allocated for the variable. Assessing a candidate's understanding of declaration statements ensures they can correctly create and initialize variables in their programs.

Visual Basic Hiring Test FAQs

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. Here's a quick guide on how you can request a custom test.

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
  • Screen proctoring
  • Web proctoring

  • Copy paste protection

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.
