This intermediate-level coding challenge focuses on candidates’ ability to interpret and debug code, based on a set of requirements, in the programming language of their choice. You can configure which programming languages will be available.
Software Engineers, Web Developers, and Programmers. This test evaluates their ability to efficiently identify and fix code errors, a key skill for maintaining software quality and performance.
For organizations seeking adept coders, mastering debugging skills is paramount. Debugging is crucial in resolving coding issues, enhancing code efficiency, and ensuring seamless functionality in diverse applications.
This intermediate-level, language-agnostic debugging challenge empowers candidates to troubleshoot coding errors using their preferred programming language. Employers have the flexibility to configure supported languages based on organizational requirements.
Candidates are evaluated on their ability to identify and rectify coding errors, a vital skill for maintaining robust and error-free applications. The challenge presents scenarios of intermediate complexity, allowing candidates to showcase their debugging prowess using the programming language of their choice.
This screening test is designed to pinpoint experienced candidates ready for professional challenges in coding through their adept debugging skills. Successful candidates not only navigate debugging challenges effectively but also exhibit the adaptability to contribute meaningfully to coding projects.
Gain valuable insights into candidates’ problem-solving capabilities, identify individuals with intermediate coding and debugging skills, and build a proficient coding team aligned with your organizational needs.
This coding challenge has been developed by TestGorilla's team of software development experts. As with all the tests in our test library, it will continue to be evaluated for continuous improvement in line with our standardized revision process.
TestGorilla’s tests are created by subject matter experts. We assess potential subject-matter experts based on their knowledge, ability, and reputation. Before being published, each test is peer-reviewed by another expert, and then calibrated using hundreds of test takers with relevant experience in the subject. Our feedback mechanisms and unique algorithms allow our subject-matter experts to constantly improve their tests
TestGorilla helps me to assess engineers rapidly. Creating assessments for different positions is easy due to pre-existing templates. You can create an assessment in less than 2 minutes. The interface is intuitive and it’s easy to visualize results per assessment.

Any tool can have functions—bells and whistles. Not every tool comes armed with staff passionate about making the user experience positive.
The TestGorilla team only offers useful insights to user challenges, they engage in conversation.
For instance, I recently asked a question about a Python test I intended to implement. Instead of receiving “oh, that test would work perfectly for your solution,” or, “at this time we’re thinking about implementing a solution that may or may not…” I received a direct and straightforward answer with additional thoughts to help shape the solution.
I hope that TestGorilla realizes the value proposition in their work is not only the platform but the type of support that’s provided.
For a bit of context—I am a diversity recruiter trying to create a platform that removes bias from the hiring process and encourages the discovery of new and unseen talent.
