About the Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) test

Visual Basic for Applications (VBA) is an event-driven programming language built into Microsoft Office applications. If you work with data in Microsoft Office, an expert VBA programmer can help you manage your data exactly the way you need it.

A hallmark of a good VBA practitioner is being able to create your own tools and functions to satisfy various requirements and business needs. This Visual Basic for Applications test uses real-world scenarios to gauge practical and applied VBA skills.

This VBA test focuses on core VBA skills, including using intermediate coding, applying visual UserForms, working with data from varying sources, and using VBA with Microsoft Excel, one of the most popular applications of VBA.

VBA is useful for a variety of business sectors, and developing the right tools may save your company hundreds of hours, as VBA enables repetitive tasks to be replaced with scripts, forms, functions, and procedures. VBA can help you save time and money by implementing efficient coding, managing data inside Excel sheets, connecting with SQL databases, and reading HTML and visual creations. This VBA skills test will evaluate the important skills a candidate needs to be a versatile intermediate developer.

Candidates who perform well on this VBA skills test have a strong grasp of VBA and practical experience using its programming resources and framework.

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.
