About the TypeScript (coding): intermediate-level algorithms test

In recent years, TypeScript has become one of the most popular and most in-demand coding languages, and with good reason. As a superset of JavaScript, TypeScript offers developers the option to add static typing that makes it faster and easier for them to navigate complex, large-scale systems and catch bugs.

Good foundational knowledge of TypeScript has become an essential asset for junior programmers who want to work on large-scale projects and do more with their code. Candidates who do well on this test are able to hit the ground running with basic TypeScript programming so they can learn and grow quickly in the right environment.

This intermediate-level coding test gives candidates 30 minutes to solve a coding task by writing a short program. The candidates' code is evaluated against a set of test cases, some of which are available to the candidate so they can determine if they are on the right track.

Other test cases are only available on the backend, and check whether the candidate has considered all possible cases, including corner cases. These test cases determine the candidate's final score on the test depending on how many of them have been passed.

This is a great screening test for TypeScript that allows you to effectively screen candidates based on intermediate-level skills.

We recommend combining coding tests with at least one of our cognitive ability tests evaluating numerical or analytical skills.

The test is made by a subject-matter expert

Kiera S.

A full-stack developer with over six years of hands-on coding experience in large tech companies, Kiera “speaks” fluent JavaScript and TypeScript and sometimes dabbles in French with her friends and coworkers. Her technology stack includes frameworks such as Angular, React, and Ionic (among others) and she’s always learning new technologies through her multifaceted work. Outside of work and language learning, Kiera enjoys long hiking trips with friends and her trusted Labrador, Coco.

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.

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.
