Score Distribution

You should expect ~20% of the candidates to do well on Adaface assessments.

The score distribution for our assessments follow the normal curve. This is a good sign- standardized tests like SAT and GRE follow the normal distribution (bell curve).

Status quo assessments typically have the exact opposite of the bell curve (too many candidates getting close to 0, too many candidates getting close to 100 and too few candidates in the middle). This is typically because they focus on theoretical questions or trick questions, which are very binary in nature- either you know the trick/ theory or you don’t.

FAQs

What is a custom assessment?

Every role is different and requires a custom assessment to identify top candidates efficiently. Adaface subject matter experts understand your job description/ role requirements and pick the most relevant questions from our library of 10000+ questions to create a technical assessment that helps you find the qualified candidates in your candidate pipeline quickly.

Check out a sample assessment here (no credit card required).

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.

How is Adaface different from other assessment tools?

We believe that status quo tech assessment platforms are not a fair way for companies to evaluate engineers because they focus on trick questions/ puzzles/ niche algorithms. We started Adaface to help companies find great engineers by assessing on-the-job skills required for a role. Read more about why we started Adaface.

Here's what's different with Adaface:

  1. High quality non-googleable questions that test for on-the-job skills as opposed to theoretical knowledge.
  2. A friendly conversational assessment with a chatbot, instead of sending a "test" to a candidate. This translates to a higher completion rate. Adaface assessments (86% candidate completion rate), as opposed to traditional tests (40-50% candidate completion rate)
  3. Customized assessments for 700+ skills at different experience levels.
Do you have any anti-cheating features in place?

We have the following anti-cheating features in place:

  1. Web proctoring
  2. Webcam proctoring
  3. Plagairism detection
  4. Non-googleable questions
  5. Secure browser

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. As in an assessment is optimizing 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 60%, 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 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.

Microsoft Excel is a software program produced by Microsoft that allows users to organize, format and calculate data with formulas using a spreadsheet system. Spreadsheets present tables of values arranged in rows and columns that can be manipulated mathematically using both basic and complex arithmetic operations and functions.

Microsoft Excel was first released in 1985, and has steadily grown to become what is probably the most important business application in the world. Given that more than 80% of businesses use Excel for planning, budgeting and forecasting, it is safe to say that Excel is a powerful tool.

Some of the roles that need Microsoft Excel skills are:

  • Accountants and auditors
  • Marketing, sales, training and administrative managers
  • Project coordinators, project and construction managers
  • Data analysts
  • Investment bankers and financial analysts
