Angular Developer Test

Use an Angular test to hire web developers and Angular specialists, by testing their knowledge and understanding of the popular framework.

  • What is an Angular test?

    An Angular test is used to assess a web developer's skill using the Angular framework when building web applications. If your role requires Angular knowledge, you should consider using an Angular test to assess this specialized skill.

    The Angular test uses multiple-choice questions and covers a range of Angular topics including architecture, application structure and best practices, dataflow and immutability, attribute and structural directives, component lifecycle hooks and more.

    Each candidate who has applied for your job role can be sent a selection of tests including the Angular assessment. They are given a set amount of time to answer questions, which provide employers with a set of test scores that can be used to compare against other applicants. You can use these data-driven insights for making shortlisting decisions.

    Select the assessments that match the skills or behaviours for the position. You can test for software or coding competency, soft skills like teamwork, or personality traits, to be sure those who pass have high potential.

  • Reduce costs and time.

    No more laborious sifting of resumes or cover letters. Pick your ideal assessment mix, invite your applicants to take them, see the results in your dashboard. Get to the interview stage fast.

  • Eliminate bias.

    All your candidates take the assessments on a level playing field. Only their results determine whether they get shortlisted.

  • Why is an Angular test so important when hiring?

    Traditional methods of screening candidates during the early stages of hiring are challenging when trying to assess programming and framework knowledge such as Angular. A candidate might indicate they are proficient in this skill set but without testing them you are taking their word at face value (which is often biased).

    An Angular test removes that challenge by assessing the skills you care about. Being able to use data-driven metrics to understand the strengths and weaknesses of your applicants gives you the upper hand when shortlisting. These decisions become a lot easier, fairer and help reduce unconscious bias in the process.

    Using an Angular test provides HR teams and recruiters with 4 core benefits:

    1. Makes decision-making easier through data-driven insights

    2. Reduces unconscious bias during recruitment

    3. Provides comparative data on candidates so you can compare individuals

    4. Helps you recruit for skillsets you might not fully understand

How to assess Angular skills using our test

Our Angular test asks a variety of questions that vary in difficulty level. Candidates who are proficient in Angular should be able to answer most of the questions correctly.

The Angular test provides valuable data-driven insight into what a candidate knows and understands. The test is structured using multiple-choice questions: a familiar format for most test-takers, that allows for instant and objective scoring.

As well as the correct answer, there are typically 2–4 distractors, representing common misconceptions and mistakes. This helps make the test more challenging, so a candidate's ability can be measured more accurately.

Test scores are provided to the user and can be compared to other test-takers in your talent pool to see how they perform relative to each other.

Each test has been thoroughly reviewed to ensure accuracy and validity in line with industry standards. It has been written, examined and edited by Angular experts and psychometric professionals. It has also been reviewed by a diverse sample of job seekers to check for any issues including sensitivity, face validity, fairness and accessibility.

This test is continually monitored so our team can optimize performance and regularly assess fairness issues.
