About the test

The PowerShell online test assesses PowerShell skills with questions that require knowledge of task automation and configuration management across operating systems.

The assessment includes solving work-sample tasks such as:

  • Using cmdlets and modules for system administration and configuration management tasks.
  • Setting up data processing pipelines.

A good system administrator or PowerShell developer needs to have a solid understanding of the PowerShell command-line and scripting language to work on and automate system administration tasks efficiently.

A software package has to ship with a PowerShell script that creates a directory at the given path. The path will include the directory's name and can be provided as a parameter to the script.

Consider the following script CreateDirectory.ps1:

If ($Path) {
  New-Item $Path -ItemType Directory
  Write-Host "File created at path $Path"
} Else {
  Write-Host "Path cannot be empty"
Write-Host "Script run complete"

What will happen if the given script is run?

Decorative quote

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.
