Software Developer / Programmer Test

Make sure you are hiring a computer programming professional who is the best fit for the job with our pre-employment test.

Pre-Employment Test

Purpose: Need to hire experienced software developers to create products or improve your company’s data performance? How will you really know they have the mental agility needed for YOUR company? Will they be a team player that is cooperative and communicative? The Software Developer / Programmer Test was created to find highly technical employees who can manage and execute projects until completion, and they have to satisfy their main customer – whether or you a client.

About the Software Developer / Programmer Test: This test is untimed and should take most candidates approximately 40 minutes to complete. It consists of 2 parts:

  • An untimed personality assessment
  • An untimed test of General Cognitive Aptitude (includes verbal, numerical, and abstract reasoning)

What the Test Report Gives You: After a candidate completes the test, you will receive the results instantly via email. The results include a graphical display of scores of areas covered (see chart), explanation of aptitude results, list of strengths & developmental concerns, and suggested interview questions.

Related Tests You Might Be Interested In: The Systems Analyst Test is similar to this one, but it has a larger number of personal style dimensions, because we see system analysts and network administrators as having more social demands and greater need for interpersonal skills.

Testing Process: Online personality testing provides immediate reporting. Proctoring is desirable but not required.
