How to assess Python coding skills using our test
Our Python test asks a variety of questions that vary in difficulty level. Candidates who are proficient in Python should be able to answer most of the questions correctly.
The Python 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 Python 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.
