TypeScript Test

Typescript is a language that is built on the basics of JavaScript, and developers use it because it offers additional features that add to what JavaScript is capable of. If you are hiring for a developer who uses TypeScript, you want to be sure that they have the right level of skills and knowledge to use these tools in the right way.

What is a Typescript test?

The TypeScript test evaluates candidates on their knowledge of TypeScript as well as their ability to apply it in the workplace.

It is a multiple-choice test that asks questions that relate to the language, controllers, and additional services that TypeScript uses that make JavaScript more applicable to server-side development.

The candidate needs to demonstrate not only that they understand the principles of TypeScript, but also that they can apply it logically and use it confidently. The results of the assessment will show the recruiter what the candidate can do using TypeScript, and that they are in the right position to progress.

Assessments like the TypeScript test are becoming more common in recruitment because they ask all candidates to answer an equal number of questions with similar difficulty levels - and that makes the results unbiased and quantifiable. Candidates who score above the benchmark are therefore more qualified.

About the TypeScript Test

TypeScript is essentially an open-source extension to JavaScript that was created to make server-side development better (and scalable).

The TypeScript test will ensure that you are choosing the most qualified and able candidates to move further through the recruitment process.

Why should you use a TypeScript test?

TypeScript is a strongly typed and compiled programming language that is object-oriented. This makes it slightly different from JavaScript, despite being used in similar ways.

When hiring for a TypeSpring developer, most recruiters will set criteria based on qualifications and relevant experience, but this doesn't differentiate for the level of skill - which makes screening more complicated.

There are different facets to TypeScript, and this test is designed to ensure that the candidates can demonstrate that they understand the syntax and keywords used in the programming language, and that they can apply the JavaScript conversion appropriately.

Candidates also have to show that they understand the additional layers of editor-like applications that are used in TypeScript - and when they are most appropriate to use in the workplace.

By using the TypeScript test, hiring teams can filter through candidates based on the skills they demonstrate, and recruiters can use quantifiable and unbiased data to ensure that they are only choosing the top performers.

The TypeScript test would be useful when hiring for other roles too, including:

The candidate can take the test at home and on their own time. The recruitment team can administer it to a large number of candidates at the same time, which makes this screening stage faster and more efficient, and provides reliable data about which candidates are most suitable for the TypeScript role that is advertised.

How our test assesses TypeScript skills

In Neuroworx’s TypeScript test, candidates will need to answer a range of questions targeting an intermediate level of proficiency, from demonstrating knowledge about the programming language to interpreting code to solve common issues.

The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands TypeScript based on a final test score, which can then be compared to the scores of other applicants.

The multiple-choice questions consist of one correct answer and two to four distractors. The distractors are mostly generic mistakes or misconceptions, which makes the test challenging and helps measure a candidate’s proficiency more accurately.

During the development process, the test was rigorously analyzed to maximize reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. It was created and tested by programmers and psychometric experts, and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying TypeScript experience, just like you might find in a talent pool.

Each test is reviewed by a panel of individuals representing diverse backgrounds to check for any sensitivity, fairness, face validity and accessibility issues. This ensures each programmer has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of TypeScript proficiency and feels the test is of high quality.

Our programming tests are monitored to ensure they are up-to-date and optimized for performance.
