If you don't see a template you need in our test library, you can mix and match different skills with your own questions by creating a custom test.

How to create a Custom Skills Test?

  1. Click "New job" on the dashboard

  2. Click "Create a custom test" from the Test Library and name your job

  3. Verify/update "General settings"

  4. Click on the "Candidate pipeline" tab to view the hiring pipeline. To begin creating your test, click on the test that is attached to the Skills Test step.

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

The pop-up will allow you to create your own question by selecting the type of question under "Or add a custom question" or 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

  • Smart questions

    These are dynamic questions. Every candidate gets a different set of questions, pulled randomly from our library for the chosen skill. The question can be any of the types that follow below.

  • 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 visuals.

    • 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.

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.
