Language specific assessments
Imagine this - you are hiring for a backend Java developer. What are some language constructs you should be assessing them on?
Answers to this question are many - Inheritance, Polymorphism, OOPS etc. What do the popular assessment engines assess them on, though?
Algorithms and Data Structures. This, irrespective of the fact that the role might or might not be big on algorithms. This is the source of a fundamental disconnect between what should be assessed and what is assessed leading to potential bad hiring. DoSelect’s suite of language based assessments evaluates code on language construct and ability to navigate them. This does not absolve our content bank of algorithms - we have tons of algorithmic questions. Beyond algorithms though, the bank comprises of a vast suite of questions that gauge conceptual ability across 24+ programming languages.
