Throughout my career as a web developer, I've been through the time when I need to sit and prepare test for interviewees of my company. For recruitment agency, that's a great method to filter unwanted candidates before inviting them for an interview.

I have to admit, preparing a good quality test is a tough job, especially in programming, there's just too many types of questions can be asked, and you can't create too many of them. I remember vividly that I complaint about it because it's taking too much of my time. Therefore, you really need to spend some times, doing research because  it's crucial to have the right questions to test the knowledge of the candidates.

We have a good news, you don't have to go through all that, let me introduce a great time saver, it's designed to create tests -  Tests4Geeks. Implied by its name, you can create a good quality technical test for programmers, quickly and easily. The main goal of Tests4Geeks is to save time, plus, they have a good collections of well-thought questions.

Creating a Test

It's very easy to create a test, just click on "New Test" button and then choose a test from a few lists. For example, you can choose PHP quiz or combined PHP with other related subjects such as Javascript, MySQL, HTML and CSS. Each subject has at least 18 questions, and each question is carefully created to ensure it's of good quality. Here is an example of HTML & CSS test I created in less than a few seconds!

Tests4Geeks has a good collection of questions for different programming languages. Here's the list:

  • PHP
  • HTML
  • .NET
  • JavaScript
  • Python
  • Databases
  • Java
  • iOS
  • Android
  • Ruby
  • C

Once you've chosen a test, it will generate an unique URL link that you can send to the candidate, this is particularly thoughtful, because you will able to include the test link in the job vacancy advertisement.

During the test, candidates will need to complete it within a certain time frame, and there will be restriction such as no typing on keyboard and taking screenshot to eliminate the chance of cheating. You can try the test yourself before sending it out too.

As soon as the candidate completed the test, you will receive test report in your mailbox for decision making - either reject or invite the candidate for the interview. It's that simple. You don't even need to kill your brain cell to create questions, just a few clicks and a good quality test is ready.

Branding & Pricing

In order to make it looks professional, you can brand the test with your own domain and company logo. There will be no mention about Test4Geeks throughout the test. Pretty sure, it will give a great impression to the candidates.
