How China Select uses IT Coding Tests

China Select works with a large number of companies for its hiring, training and testing requirements. IBM China was its first client that requested coding tests through a white labeled solution with specific features to suit its needs.

China Select chose coding tests developed by ExpertRating’s Codeassess platform as an efficient way to test the coding skills in 20 different programming languages. Using Codeassess, China Select was able to use pre-set tests or design its own tests, by selecting the questions from a large pool of programming questions or customize its own questions in order to meet the specific needs.

These tests were suitable for individuals with basic IT programming knowledge as well as the individuals with advanced knowledge. The tests were taken at multiple locations within the same time period, lasting for 20-90 minutes each. The tests comprised coding tasks and the multiple choice questions.
