Equip Tests Hierarchy


You invite candidates to assessments on Equip, and then see their results. An assessment maps to a specific role (Python Developer, Account Executive) and may contain multiple tests within it. The candidate attempts the tests one-by-one.


Each assessment is made up of one or more tests. For example, a Python Developer assessment may have one quiz and one programming challenge. The candidate attempts a test in one sitting and then starts the next test


A test is made up of one or more questions. Depending on the test type, there may be a single question (a programming challenge), multiple questions being shown one-by-one (quiz with Equip's content), or multiple questions being shown all at once

Custom Test

A test you have created with your own questions. Once you create a custom test (say, a Video Response), you can add it to any assessment by selecting the Test Type (Video Response) and then clicking the Add button, followed by My Content
