About the Django test

Django is a high-level Python web framework that encourages rapid development and clean, pragmatic design. Hiring candidates with strong Django skills can lead to faster development, improved software scalability, better security, cost savings, and greater flexibility.

This test evaluates candidates’ abilities to use Django’s model system for effective database management, implement Django views, write great Django templates, and use Django form features and validation.

Candidates who do well on this test will demonstrate the ability to design and implement database models, create views that handle user requests and return appropriate responses, build efficient and reusable templates that display data, validate user input, write comprehensive tests to ensure the reliability of their code, and handle errors gracefully.

Successful candidates will create scalable and maintainable web applications, reduce development time and costs, improve user experience, and effectively handle and recover from errors. Their proficiency in testing will help ensure the quality and stability of their applications, while their error-handling skills will contribute to a seamless user experience and enable effective troubleshooting.

By evaluating candidates’ Django proficiency, you can identify candidates well-equipped to develop robust and high-performing web applications. Their ability to deliver quality code, handle errors effectively, and provide a seamless user experience will increase customer satisfaction, higher engagement, and better business outcomes.

What our customers are saying

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.

Review from G2

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.
