NOTE: This test contains measures of personality and general cognitive aptitude. It does NOT evaluate proficiency in HTML, CSS, SQL, JavaScript, ASP, Python, etc.

Purpose and When to Use It: RA’s Web Developer Test is useful for screening potential employees who will be tasked with creating content for front end, back end, or full stack internal company and ecommerce website applications. These employees are typically responsible for the website’s development and/or design, implementation, maintenance and support. The best-fit candidates will be adept at interpersonal communication, customer-focused, adaptable, detail-minded, persistent and able to handle the problem-solving demands of the job in a capable manner.

About the Test: This assessment battery includes the following components:

  • A set of personality dimensions assessing important and functional traits for the role
  • An untimed general cognitive aptitude test
  • This test takes most individuals 30 minutes to complete.

Target group: We recommend using this test for the positions of website designer, web application developer, junior web developer, software developer, front end web developer/graphic designer, full stack developer, software engineer, application developer, and other IT developer roles.

What the Report Gives You: The report provides a graphical display of aptitude and personality trait scores, score interpretation guidance–including a detailed list of strengths and developmental concerns–and suggested interview questions.

Testing Process: RA’s online personality testing can be done from any device with a reliable internet connection. The use of mobile phones is discouraged. Test results are provided immediately.

Recommended Options: RA’s Web Developer (personality only — $25) version allows for more flexibility for companies opting to conduct specific computer application knowledge/aptitude testing such as HTML/CSS, SQL, JavaScript, Python and ASP.net.
