The PHP online test assesses candidates' knowledge of programming in PHP language and their ability to leverage commonly used built-in functions.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good PHP developer needs to be able not only to solve problems using PHP as the programming language but also recognize when to take advantage of its rich set of built-in functions.

This test requires candidates to be able to solve coding problems in PHP and find and fix bugs in PHP programs.

File Owners

CODE

PHP Language Public

Implement a groupByOwners function that:

  • Accepts an associative array containing the file owner name for each file name.
  • Returns an associative array containing an array of file names for each owner name, in any order.

For example, for associative array ["Input.txt" => "Randy", "Code.py" => "Stan", "Output.txt" => "Randy"] the groupByOwners function should return ["Randy" => ["Input.txt", "Output.txt"], "Stan" => ["Code.py"]].

A palindrome is a word that reads the same backward or forward.

Write a function that checks if a given word is a palindrome. Character case should be ignored.

For example, isPalindrome("Deleveled") should return true as character case should be ignored, resulting in "deleveled", which is a palindrome since it reads the same backward and forward.

Thesaurus

PHP Serialization Public

A thesaurus contains words and synonyms for each word. Below is an example of a data structure that defines a thesaurus:

array("buy" => array("purchase"), "big" => array("great", "large"))

Implement the function getSynonyms, which accepts a word as a string and returns all synonyms for that word in JSON format, as in the example below.

For example, the call $thesaurus->getSynonyms("big") should return:

'{"word":"big","synonyms":["great", "large"]}'

while a call with a word that doesn't have synonyms, like $thesaurus->getSynonyms("agelast") should return:

'{"word":"agelast","synonyms":[]}'

What Others Say
TestDome user reviews on G2 Crowd
Simple, straight-forward technical testing

Testdome is simple, provides a reasonable (though not extensive) battery of tests to choose from, and doesn't take the candidate an inordinate amount of time. It also simulates working pressure with the time limits.

Jan Opperman, Grindrod Bank

Very smooth, well supported, great for assessing candidates

Very Prompt and helpful support when needed, we were looking to work with a third party to write and set up new tests, testdome was able to quickly set up and support a method to do this, allowing us to start testing candidates straight away.

George Offer, Guided Solutions

Easy to use and efficient for testing developers of different levels

It provides us an opportunity to set our own timing policy, to choose from variety of questions from different areas and with difficulty gradation. Also it is great that TestDome provides free of charge tests for candidates to prepare and check how online IDE works. And support is always ready to help:)

Screening Applicants: The Good, the Bad and the Ugly

Since we’re all biased and we use incorrect proxies, why not just outsource hiring to experts or recruitment agencies? After all, they’ve been screening people for many years, so they must know how to do it right?

Not really. I was surprised to discover that many experts disagree with each other. Everybody praises their pet method and criticises the others. Many of these methods look legitimate, but are based on...
