C (coding): language-specific concepts
This C coding test evaluates a candidate's procedural programming skills, as well as their ability to use pointers, references, and manage memory. This test will help you identify and hire mid-level C developers.
- Language specific concepts
This test is relevant for
Any developer who is expected to have practical experience with C. The difficulty level is geared to mid-level developers.
DescriptionC is a general-purpose, procedural programming language that by design maps efficiently to typical machine instructions. It has found lasting use in operating systems and various application software for computers' architectures that range from supercomputers to PLCs and embedded systems.
This test gives you the opportunity to check your candidates' C skills and their familiarity with its unique features. It is geared towards mid-level developers. It is a great initial screening test that allows you to effectively screen candidates' procedural programming and memory management skills.
This coding test presents a real-life scenario to your candidates. They have 30 minutes to implement a piece of code that meets the given requirements. Candidates can run the code against a selected number of test cases to see if they are on track. After submission, the code is automatically scored based on another set of test cases that also covers exceptions or corner cases. You will be able to play back how the code came about in the coding editor.
We recommend using this coding test in combination with cognitive ability tests.
