About the Microsoft SQL Server test

Shortly after it was first released in 1989, Microsoft SQL Server became an industry standard for companies searching for a reliable and user-friendly relational database management system. Decades later, it remains one of the most popular database management systems, releasing regular updates to meet changing business needs. Because of its popularity, many database developers and administrators have experience with Microsoft SQL Server. This trend means that you will always have a wide range of candidates to select from when you need to hire someone with SQL Server skills. But, it also means that you need a way to quickly evaluate which candidates have experience that translates into practical job skills.

This Microsoft SQL Server test evaluates candidates’ skills in setting up the SQL Server environment and using its tools, designing and developing databases, and using SQL Server performance tuning and optimization. This screening test also evaluates candidates’ ability to perform administration and security tasks in Microsoft SQL Server.

This screening test will help you identify Microsoft SQL Server database developers, administrators and specialists who can quickly master your business’ use of SQL Server and begin making improvements to your processes. Candidates who do well on this Microsoft SQL Server test have the hands-on skills to work independently in SQL Server.

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.
