Premium questions with real-world problems

The System administrator (sysadmin)/system engineer test assesses a candidate's knowledge of setting up and maintaining computer systems.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good system administrator needs to have knowledge of upkeep, configuration, and reliable operation of system software, hardware, and computer systems, especially servers. They also ensure that these systems run efficiently and effectively.

This online test requires candidates to answer multiple-choice questions about different parts of computer systems, and procedures that keep such systems up and running.

Pass/fail grouping

Our tests are designed to put candidates into either the pass group or the fail group so you can find the best candidates faster.

Full customization

We have pre-built tests and questions, but you can customize them however you like. Change the pass/fail scores, time requirements, and more.

Cheating protection

Use tests that solve real-world problems, with no answers that can be easily found online. Because we test performance and skills (not information), we allow the use of online resources, just like in real life. Copy/paste prevention and online proctoring via webcam prevent cheating.
