Feature spotlight – Coding questions

In this feature spotlight we’re going to take a look at the auto-scoring code based questions. This was the top requested feature in our roadmap and allows you to test candidates real-world programming skills.

There were a few things that we specifically focused on

  1. We wanted to have quite a few smaller code questions in the tests we create, so we wanted to make sure that code questions could be created quickly and easily enough that you (the user) could make them yourself with a minimum of support
  2. We wanted to make sure that we supported a range of the most popular languages at launch to give us good coverage. At the moment we have support for Javascript, NodeJS, TypeScript, PHP, Python, Ruby, C, C++, C#, Java, Swift and Kotlin with quite a few more to come in the next few months
  3. We want to make sure the experience for candidates was simple so that the platform wouldn’t get in the way of them expressing their understanding and skills

We hope this brings you value. We’re working hard to make Evaluate the best code screening platform possible, and making it affordable for small tech startups.

If there’s anything that you’d like us to add to our roadmap, please make sure to message us or send an email to developers@evaluate.io.
