Adaface SQL Server Online Test is the most accurate way to shortlist SQL Server DBAs



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The SQL Server Online 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 too many candidates and saves time by filtering out unqualified candidates at the first step of the hiring process.

Non-googleable questions & proctoring features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. The SQL Server Online Test is ideal for helping recruiters identify which candidates have the skills to do well on the job.

Reason #2

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 Microsoft SQL Server Test will be non-googleable.

🧐 Question

Medium

Merge data sources
Solve
Teylor Swift is a developer at your company and is setting up a data flow transformation to merge 2 data sources. 1 source contains item data and the other source contains data regarding the company which made the item.

The 2 data sources use SQL Server and have a 3-character CompanyCode column. Both data sources contain an ORDER BY clause to sort the data by CompanyCode in ascending order. 

Teylor wants to make sure that the Merge Join transformation works without additional transformations. What would you recommend?
A: Change the ORDER BY clause on the item source to order by ItemName.
B: Set the appropriate SortKeyPosition properties on the data sources.
C: Set the IsSorted property on both data sources.
D: Change the Merge Join transformation to a Merge transformation.

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment Microsoft SQL Server 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 Microsoft SQL Server 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.

Reason #7

Detailed scorecards & comparative results

Reason #8

High completion rate

Adaface tests are conversational, low-stress, and take just 25-40 mins to complete.

This is why Adaface has the highest test-completion rate (86%), which is more than 2x better than traditional assessments.

The hiring managers felt that through the technical questions that they asked during the panel interviews, they were able to tell which candidates had better scores, and differentiated with those who did not score as well. They are highly satisfied with the quality of candidates shortlisted with the Adaface screening.

¿Cómo interpreto los puntajes de las pruebas?

Lo principal a tener en cuenta es que una evaluación es una herramienta de eliminación, no una herramienta de selección. Una evaluación de habilidades está optimizada para ayudarlo a eliminar a los candidatos que no están técnicamente calificados para el rol, no está optimizado para ayudarlo a encontrar el mejor candidato para el papel. Por lo tanto, la forma ideal de usar una evaluación es decidir un puntaje umbral (generalmente del 55%, lo ayudamos a comparar) e invitar a todos los candidatos que obtienen un puntaje por encima del umbral para las próximas rondas de la entrevista.

¿Para qué nivel de experiencia puedo usar esta prueba?

Cada evaluación de AdaFace está personalizada para su descripción de trabajo/ persona candidata ideal (nuestros expertos en la materia elegirán las preguntas correctas para su evaluación de nuestra biblioteca de más de 10000 preguntas). Esta evaluación se puede personalizar para cualquier nivel de experiencia.
