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.

View sample questions

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.

How we design questions

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

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

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

What topics are covered in the Watir Testing Online Test?

  • Watir testing:

    Watir testing is a skill that involves using the Watir gem, which stands for Web Application Testing in Ruby, to automate the testing of web applications. It provides a simple and powerful way to interact with the browser and perform various tasks such as filling forms, clicking buttons, and verifying elements. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's proficiency in using Watir to automate web testing and ensure the quality and functionality of web applications.

  • Automated testing:

    Automated testing is the practice of using automated tools and scripts to execute tests and verify the behavior and functionality of software applications. It involves writing test scripts that can be run repeatedly, saving time and effort compared to manual testing. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's ability to develop and execute automated test cases, ensuring efficient and accurate testing of software applications.

  • Test automation:

    Test automation refers to the process of using tools and scripts to automate the execution and validation of test cases. It involves writing scripts to simulate user interactions with the software and verify expected outcomes. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's proficiency in automating test cases, improving efficiency and accuracy in software testing.

  • Web testing:

    Web testing is the practice of testing web applications to ensure their functionality, usability, and performance. It involves performing various tests, such as functional testing, UI testing, and performance testing, to identify and fix issues in the web application. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's understanding of web testing techniques and their ability to ensure the quality of web applications.

  • UI testing:

    UI testing, also known as user interface testing, focuses on verifying the visual elements and user interactions of a software application. It involves testing the interface components, such as buttons, menus, and forms, to ensure they function correctly and provide a seamless user experience. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's ability to test and validate the user interface of web applications, ensuring a positive user experience.

  • Functional testing:

    Functional testing is a type of black-box testing that focuses on testing the functionality of a software application. It involves verifying that each function or feature of the application works as expected, without considering the internal code structure. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's ability to design and execute functional test cases, ensuring the correctness and completeness of software applications.

  • Integration testing:

    Integration testing is a type of testing that focuses on verifying the interactions and functionality of different components or modules of a software system. It involves testing the integration points between these components to ensure they work together smoothly. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's understanding of integration testing techniques and their ability to identify and fix issues in the integration of software components.

  • Regression testing:

    Regression testing is the practice of retesting a software application after making changes or modifications to ensure that previously working functionalities are still functional and no new bugs have been introduced. It involves rerunning previously executed test cases to validate the application's behavior. This skill is measured in the test to evaluate the candidate's proficiency in performing regression testing and ensuring the stability and quality of software applications.

  • Test frameworks:

    Test frameworks provide a structured and organized way to design, develop, and execute test cases. They offer various features and functionalities to simplify the testing process, such as test case management, test data management, and reporting. This skill is measured in the test to assess the candidate's familiarity with test frameworks and their ability to leverage them in effectively managing and executing test cases.

Watir Testing 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
  • Webcam proctoring
  • Plagiarism detection
  • Secure browser
  • 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.

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.
