Use our PowerShell test to hire the best

About the PowerShell test

It’s easy for a company to get caught in a cycle of manual IT and tech tasks. But, with an expert in PowerShell on staff, you can quickly automate literally thousands of tasks, freeing up employees so they can spend their time on projects that use their skills to the fullest. Serving as both a scripting language and a command line shell, PowerShell provides flexibility; simple tasks can be completed by entering a single line in the command line.

This PowerShell test evaluates candidates’ abilities to use commands, pipelines, and variables as they script in PowerShell. This screening test also evaluates candidates’ skills in PowerShell remoting.

This screening test will help you identify experts in PowerShell who can immediately begin automating tasks for your company. Based on common real-life situations and scenarios, this PowerShell test will help you find candidates who can effectively use PowerShell regardless of whether they are Systems, Windows, or Azure-based. Candidates who do well on this test will be able to apply their knowledge on the job.

FAQs

What is the difference between an assessment and a test?
An assessment is the total package of tests and custom questions that you put together to evaluate your candidates. Each individual test within an assessment is designed to test something specific, such as a job skill or language. An assessment can consist of up to 5 tests and 20 custom questions. You can have candidates respond to your custom questions in several ways, such as with a personalized video.
Can I add my own questions to an assessment?
Yes! Custom questions are great for testing candidates in your own unique way. We support the following question types: video, multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Besides adding your own custom questions, you can also create your own tests.
How do video questions work?
A video question is a specific type of custom question you can add to your assessment. Video questions let you create a question and have your candidates use their webcam to record a video response. This is an excellent way to see how a candidate would conduct themselves in a live interview, and is especially useful for sales and hospitality roles. Some good examples of things to ask for video questions would be "Why do you want to work for our company?" or "Try to sell me an item you have on your desk right now." You can learn more about video questions here.
Can you explain how the other custom question types work?
Besides video questions, you can also add the following types of custom questions: multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Multiple-choice lets your candidates choose from a list of answers that you provide, coding lets you create a coding problem for them to solve, file upload allows your candidates to upload a file that you request (such as a resume or portfolio), and essay allows an open-ended text response to your question. You can learn more about different custom question types here.
Can I customize an assessment with my company logo and color theme?
Yes! You can add your own logo and company color theme to your assessments. This is a great way to leave a positive and lasting brand impression on your candidates.
