the heart of the perfect tests
Adaface questions are created through a systematic process led by subject matter experts who identify essential skills for specific roles and rank topics by importance. Questions are designed to evaluate practical understanding and critical thinking, adhering to criteria of clarity, fairness, and lack of bias. Following design, questions undergo peer review, error checks for language accuracy, and cultural sensitivity. They are then beta tested to ensure they effectively discriminate between candidates' competencies. Only questions that successfully differentiate candidate abilities during beta testing are incorporated into the live assessments. Our questions are designed keeping the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) guidelines in mind to remove unconscious bias from the hiring process.
