The option to create a Custom Test will appear in the "Create skills test page" AFTER you have created at least one test using the standard flow of using the templates and skills we have available - just to get you acquainted with the options available for you.

How to create a custom test?

  1. Click Create skills test
  2. Choose Create your own test from scratch at the bottom of the page
  3. Click on Add Question 
  4. Choose the question type (explained below) under the Add custom question header
  5. Start adding your question content to the screening test

In addition to your own questions you can also use our database questions* by adding them in one-by-one.

*Note that on a Free plan you have only a limited access to our Question Library. Each workspace is limited to 5 questions per skill. The questions are selected randomly, and are different for each workspace.

Question types

  • Free Text Questions
    Free Text questions are meant for open-ended questions. These are good for checking candidates' soft skills such as writing or problem-solving skills.
  • Single Choice Questions
    Single Choice Questions are meant for close-ended questions with a single correct answer.
  • Multiple Choice Questions
    Multiple Choice Questions are meant for close-ended questions with several possible correct answers. This is good for creating complex questions to test specific knowledge.
  • Picture Choice Questions
    Picture Choice Questions are meant for close-ended questions with pictures as a choice of answers instead of text. This is good for making tests more engaging by breaking the pace of text-based questions with some visual 
  • Numeric Input Questions
    Numeric Input Questions are meant for numerical answers. This is good for maths tasks, or logic questions.
  • Code Input Questions
    Code Input Questions are meant for getting a piece of code as an answer for any given task. This is good for programming problems (write a function to reverse a string), coding questions (write CSS for a pop-up with an arrow), or refactoring tasks.

Once your Custom Test is ready, it's time to customize your Test Landing Page – this is the page candidates see when they apply.
