A quick guide to Adaptive Tests

In simple words, Adaptive tests are intelligent computer-based tests which uniquely adapts or modifies its difficulty level based on the candidate’s earlier responses.

Codeground also has the provision of adaptive tests. Contact the support team to enable the adaptive test.

Understand Codeground’s Adaptive Tests Better

Codeground’s Adaptive tests can be utilized to enhance the performance of a candidate and measure the skills for both an average and highly skilled candidate.

At first, the candidate is provided with questions whose difficulty level is Easy.
If the candidate answers correctly then the difficulty level will be escalated to Intermediate. If the candidate continues answering correctly then the difficulty level of the questions will move on to Hard.

However, if the candidate does not answer the Easy questions correctly then they will be provided with Easy questions consecutively. Upon answering correctly only, the difficulty level of the question will proceed to Intermediate and eventually Hard.
