About the Ruby (coding): entry-level algorithms test
Ruby has become one of the most popular languages for building web applications, and is used on some of the biggest platforms and apps available such as the vacation booking site AirBnB, the streaming service Hulu, the popular developer site Github, and and the review site Goodreads. Ruby boasts great flexibility, robust security, and short development periods, all of which have skyrocketed its popularity.
Strong foundational knowledge of programming in Ruby is essential for junior programmers who will be working on relevant application. Candidates with a strong basis in Ruby are able to hit the ground running and set themselves up for further professional growth.
This Ruby coding test gives candidates 10 minutes to complete a straightforward coding task involving entry-level algorithms. The code is evaluated against a set of test cases, some of which are available to candidates during the test to help them determine if they are on the right track. Other test cases, including corner cases, are not available during the test and are used once the candidate's code is submitted to check whether the solution resolves all the requirements outlined in the problems.
This is a great initial screening test that allows you to effectively screen candidates based on essential skills. For more difficult coding challenges, you can consider our other Ruby test at the intermediate or advanced levels.
We recommend combining coding tests with at least one of or cognitive ability tests evaluating numerical or analytical skills.
