WooCommerce Test

A WooCommerce test can help you hire the right employees, based on their skills and abilities to use the e-commerce solution.

  • What is a WooCommerce test?

    This test assesses a candidate's ability to develop e-commerce solutions using the WooCommerce platform.

    WooCommerce is one of the most popular e-commerce solutions for small and large businesses alike. Its open-source nature and thousands of associated plugins which enhance functionality make WooCommerce the go-to for web developers that want to create completely customised 'shop fronts' to meet a brand's specifications.

    The test identifies individuals with the skillset to develop a high-performance WooCommerce store and does so by assessing candidates' knowledge of WordPress architecture, JavaScript and PHP as well as theme development, plugin development and working with internal API and REST API.

    To streamline the hiring process, the test is best administered at the screening stage of recruitment.

  • Why is a WooCommerce test so important when hiring?

    Since WooCommerce is a free plugin, anyone can claim to have used it with little experience. This is why it can be challenging to tell if a candidate is proficient.

    Sending your candidates the WooCommerce test is the easiest way to measure their skill sets. Doing this early in the recruitment process will save you time and resources conducting interviews with applicants lacking the core skills required, not to mention giving you an unbiased, accurate view of all the candidates' strengths and weaknesses.

    In addition to the technical skills required, a level of organisation, lateral thinking and administration make a great developer a productive team member too. Building and maintaining an e-commerce website is an integral function in a business - so it is important candidates demonstrate the qualities of a communicative, proactive employee.

    Due to the specific nature of the test, it is ideal for finding WooCommerce specialists - these are web developers with particular strengths in building e-commerce websites by using this open-source plugin.

How to assess WooCommerce skills using our test

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

The WooCommerce test provides valuable 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 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 WooCommerce experts and psychometric professionals.
