You have no obligation to only use our question library in your test. Feel free to create a job with tests that have your own custom questions using our test builder. To do so:

1. Select "Add job" on your Dashboard

2. Select "Create a custom test" from the Test Library

3. Add a job title and verify/update your job settings

4. To begin creating your test, click on the Edit button under the Tests section

5. To add questions, simply click on "Add question" and select the question type that you would like to add.

Note: Only static questions, free text questions, or coding questions can be customized.

The pop-up will allow you to create your own question, by selecting the type of question under "Or add a custom question." Additionally, you may add a question from our library by selecting the difficulty level of the question and the skill.

Repeat the steps to add more questions to the test. You can reorder the questions by clicking and dragging them to the desired place.

Question Types

  • Static question types

    • Single Choice Questions - meant for close-ended questions with a single correct answer.

    • Multiple Choice Questions - meant for close-ended questions with several possible correct answers. This is good for creating complex questions to test specific knowledge.

    • Picture Choice Questions - 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 - meant for numerical answers. This is good for maths tasks, or logic questions.

  • Free Text Questions
    Meant for open-ended questions. These are good for checking candidates' soft skills such as writing or problem-solving skills.

  • Code Input Questions
    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.

Note: static, free text, and coding questions will remain the same for every candidate. You can also add dynamic (smart) questions to your test by creating a customized skills test.

Character limits

6000 characters for question and answers.

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