This SQLite coding test evaluates candidates’ skills in creating a query on a database with medium complexity. It immerses the candidate in a realistic scenario, and solving it requires intermediate SQLite querying skills.
Senior backend developers or other roles requiring a practical knowledge of SQLite and medium-complexity databases and queries.
In the digital age, data forms the basis of nearly every business. And SQL is the standard query language for managing relational databases. It enables developers to create efficient software quickly by leveraging well-structured data.
Working with SQL databases is part of the day-to-day work of a backend developer. Even if your framework hides SQL behind an ORM, knowing SQL is highly recommended for backend developers.
This SQLite test assesses candidates' ability to navigate a real-life scenario involving a database of medium complexity. The objective is to create a query that successfully retrieves and/or changes information contained in a database.
Successful candidates have experience joining and filtering results. They can manipulate data using simple calculations while taking certain details into consideration, such as sorting the data, rounding numbers, and excluding irrelevant entries.
The test ranks candidates using more than 10 different test cases and checks every corner case of the solution.

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, 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.

The SQLite (coding): intermediate-level querying test will be included in a PDF report along with the other tests from your assessment. You can easily download and share this report with colleagues and candidates.
