Companies recruiting professionals for programming or software development
positions can greatly benefit from these Internet-based programming exams.
Internet application running on our Linux server allows companies to evaluate
the real skills in programming with truly effective online exams.
the main advantages of this system over most computer-based exams and
certifications systems are:
Human Resources departments can do a pre-screening on the technical
capabilities of the candidates without consuming valuable time of highly
skilled professionals from technical departments of the company.
questions of single-choice, multiple-choice, fill in the blank, and
Programming tasks questions ask the examinee to solve specific programming
problems. The answer to the question is not a choice among several possibilities,
or even the result of analyzing the code presented. Instead, the examinee
must submit actual code that will be compiled and executed by the server
application, and graded using several input values, verifying the output
against the expected (correct) output.
believe that this is a state-of-the-art computer-based examination technology.
The grading mechanism is highly effective and comprehensive. Each question
has a correct answer and may have several partially correct answers,
with partial grades, depending on the importance of the mistake, and
the specific skill being evaluated.
grading scheme for code questions is even more effective: the submitted
code is compiled by the server. If the code contains errors, the examinee
is notified, and they will have a few extra chances to submit the fixed
code (that's how it works in real-life programming!). If the code is
fine, the compiled application is executed by the server several times,
with different input values. This allows to evaluate not only the basic
programming skills, but related skills such as capabilities to handle
exceptional situations for a given algorithm.
feedback given to your Human Resources department is very precise and
valuable. The system takes into account not only the overall final grade,
but the specific points where the examinee failed; this is done considering
both the categories of the questions (i.e., the specific sub-topic of
the question), and the type of mistake the examinee made.
