Adaface English Comprehension Test is the most accurate way to shortlist Entry Level Graduates



Reason #1

Tests for on-the-job skills

The English Reading Comprehension 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.

The insights generated from this assessment can be used by recruiters and hiring managers to identify candidates with strong reading comprehension skills. Anti-cheating features enable you to be comfortable with conducting assessments online. This English Reading Comprehension 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.

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 English Reading Comprehension Test will be non-googleable.

Homeopathy
Solve
Two main axioms constitute the core principles of homeopathy. The "like cures like" principle holds that, if a substance causes a symptom (e.g. onion makes my nose run), then that substance can cure a disease that is characterised by a runny nose (e.g. hayfever or a common cold). The second principle assumes that the serial dilution process used for homeopathic remedies renders them not less but more potent (hence homeopaths call this process "potentiation").

Both of these axioms fly in the face of science. If they were true, much of what we learned in physics and chemistry would be wrong. If anyone shows the concepts of homeopathy to be correct, he or she becomes a serious contender for one or two Nobel prizes. Homeopaths often say that we simply have not yet discovered how homeopathy works. The truth is that we know there is no conceivable scientific explanation that could possibly explain it.

Which of the following options is not a possible conclusion based on the above passage?

Airline Operators
Solve
Four airline operators A, B, C and D operate on a popular route between 2 cities, Rome and Venice in Italy. Airline A wanted to increase the number of seats sold, so they reduced their fares for this route. Airlines B, C, D imitated this move immediately. The general belief is that the volume of air travel between Rome and Venice would increase as a result of this. Which of the following statements, if true, would add trust to the general belief?
A: All 4 airlines see increased profits.
B: Airlines start slashing rates for other routes as well.
C: A study shows that around 80% of air travel in Italy is company sponsored.
D: A study shows that air travellers in Italy are price sensitive.

Cigarette taxation regime
Solve
Cigarettes account for only 23% of tobacco consumption, and only 16% of 250 million tobacco consumers use cigarettes. However these 16% contribute 85% of the tax revenues to the Exchequer from the tobacco sector. The punitive cigarette taxation regime has kept the tax base narrow, and lowering taxes will expand this base. Which of these best bolsters the conclusion that lowering duties will expand the tax base?
A: The cigarette manufacturers’ association has decided to indulge in aggressive promotion.

B:  Cigarette manufacturers are lobbying for a reduction on duties.

C: There is a likelihood that tobacco consumers will shift to cigarette smoking if cigarette prices reduce.

D: An increase in duties on non-cigarette tobacco may lead to a shift in favor of cigarette smoking.

E: There is a likelihood that tobacco consumers will shift to cigarettes if cigarette prices reduce.

F: A decrease in duties on non-cigarette tobacco may lead to more tobacco consumers shifting to cigarettes. 

G: Cigarette smokers are becoming increasing aware of associated health risks.

H: Increased health warnings could reduce the tax base.

Brandon Lee, Head of People, Love, Bonito

Reason #5

Designed for elimination, not selection

The most important thing while implementing the pre-employment English Reading Comprehension 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 English Reading Comprehension 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

High completion rate

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

如何解释考试成绩?

要记住的主要问题是评估是消除工具,而不是选择工具。优化了技能评估,以帮助您消除在技术上没有资格担任该角色的候选人,它没有进行优化以帮助您找到该角色的最佳候选人。因此,使用评估的理想方法是确定阈值分数(通常为55%,我们为您提供基准测试),并邀请所有在下一轮面试中得分高于门槛的候选人。

我可以使用该测试的经验水平?
