How to choose a coding test solution for efficient developer hiring

Elice

21/03/2024

Hiring a developer involves a variety of processes, including documents, resumes, coding tests, and interviews, but coding tests have become an essential part of the process. As more and more companies conduct coding tests, testing solutions are becoming more sophisticated. What kind of coding test solution is right for your organization to select candidates with the necessary skills and conduct a reliable and fair test? In this article, we’ll take a look at the advantages of online coding test solutions and what you should consider when choosing a coding test platform.

Trends in online coding test adoption

Social and technological changes, such as the slowdown in the economy and advances in AI, have dramatically changed the way companies hire developers. With fewer and fewer large-scale open hires, and more people using ChatGPT for resumes and pre-assignments, it’s harder to tell the difference. As a result, companies are scrambling to find and refine the right coding tests to hire developers.

Online tests typically involve solving a set of problems in a limited amount of time. It’s a great way for companies to test candidates’ ability to write code, problem-solve, and utilize the structure of the material. It’s also a great way to screen talent with relatively few resources, as multiple candidates can take the test at once without space limitations. It also allows you to focus on the actual development skills you need, rather than on external factors such as a candidate’s education or specs.

Considerations for selecting a coding test solution


So what should organizations look for when choosing a coding testing solution? Let’s take a look at three things to consider when choosing a coding test solution.


1. Test design

When choosing a coding test platform, how the tests are designed is very important. When choosing a testing platform, it’s important to consider whether the questions and criteria can be set up to suit your organization’s needs, as this will affect the ability to assess the competencies you’re looking for.

Elice Coding’s testing platform offers a wide range of features for test design. Features such as test difficulty, questions, scoring criteria, and time limits can be customized to meet your organization’s needs. In addition, the Elice Coding Test Platform provides a high-quality question bank based on training data from 400,000 people to accurately assess the competencies required for developer hiring. This allows organizations to quickly design the tests they want and find the right talent.


2. Fairness

When choosing a coding testing platform, it’s important to ensure sufficient fairness. Online testing has the advantage of being location-agnostic and cost-saving, but it also raises concerns about cheating. Therefore, when choosing a testing platform, it’s important to consider whether it can prevent cheating and ensure fairness.

The Elice CodingTest platform takes this into account and offers robust anti-cheating features. Our remote ID verification process ensures accurate identity verification before testing begins, and our triple monitoring system, recording function, dual monitors, and other program controls ensure that cheating is thoroughly managed. We also offer an automated anti-cheating solution that can prevent ChatGPT cheating, so you can conduct fair online testing with peace of mind.


3. Server environments


The most important thing for a coding test site is a stable server environment. When choosing a coding test site, it’s important to make sure that it provides a stable online testing environment, as it can be a major disaster if candidates can’t access the site or can’t submit their answers due to disconnection during the test.

Elice Coding Test uses an auto-scaling method that automatically increases the server based on usage, so it provides a stable server environment even when 2,000 people are connected at the same time. We also offer pre-mock tests so that candidates can familiarize themselves with the same features as the actual test environment before the test begins, and avoid delays on the day of the test. This helps companies avoid surprises and ensure that they can run large-scale tests reliably.
