What is a WooCommerce test?

WooCommerce is an open-source plugin for WordPress that was launched in 2011 to offer a simple e-commerce solution for small and large businesses.

With WooCommerce, customisable 'shop fronts' can be used to sell almost anything to customers online, with shipping and multiple payment options including card, BACS and PayPal, as well as cash on delivery.

WooCommerce is a popular choice to allow online selling because it is a free option that is almost completely customisable. As such, it can fit the look and feel of any business, and there are potentially thousands of extensions and additions that can be used to make it stand out.

A WooCommerce test can be used in the screening stage of a recruitment process to ensure that a developer has the right skills and knowledge to create and manage WooCommerce for your business.

About the WooCommerce Test

The WooCommerce Test assesses the skills and knowledge of a candidate in using WooCommerce, from building the store to customisation, as well as troubleshooting and fault finding.

Candidates who score well on the WooCommerce test will be able to create and maintain an e-commerce store on WordPress and make sure that the user experience is smooth and simple.

WooCommerce is relatively straightforward, with a large community of users. Experts in the field can make sure that everything works as it is meant to, helping customers to make purchasing decisions quickly.

The WooCommerce test is simple to administer to a number of potential candidates and provides an easy-to-understand result, highlighting the proficiency that recruiters are looking for in WooCommerce developers.

What’s the difference between a product licence and a subscription?

  • A product licence is a monthly payment whereas a subscription is annual.
  • A product licence applies only to specific Woocommerce stores.
  • There is no difference.
  • Product licences used to require manual annual payments and were replaced by automatic renewals (subscriptions).

Why should you use a WooCommerce test for recruiting?

It can be difficult to tell from a resume or cover letter whether a prospective developer has the skills that you need, and that is where a WooCommerce test can really make a difference.

With a simple email link to the assessment, the WooCommerce test assesses each candidate based on the knowledge and skills needed to successfully develop an e-commerce store, add themes and features, and solve problems to ensure a smooth customer experience.

Skills that are tested include theme and plug-in development, knowledge and use of packages, as well as working with internal API and REST API alongside general administration. For developers, working knowledge of WordPress as a whole is very important, as is Javascript and PHP.

The best WooCommerce developers can align the online store with the theme of the WordPress site and develop add-ons and other plugins that suit the needs of the business.

Recruiters who are looking for a developer to help them migrate to WooCommerce and build new solutions can use the WooCommerce test to ensure that candidates have the required level of skill and knowledge.

How our test assesses WooCommerce skills

In Neuroworx's WooCommerce test, candidates will need to answer a range of questions targeting an intermediate level of proficiency, from demonstrating knowledge and use of packages to proficiency using features and functions such as theme and plug-in development.

The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands WooCommerce 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. They are 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 analysed to maximise reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. It was created and tested by experienced developers and psychometric experts, and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying experience with WooCommerce, 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 candidate has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of WooCommerce proficiency.

Our software tests are monitored to ensure they are up-to-date and optimised for performance.
