The Python and SQL online test assesses candidates' knowledge of programming in the Python language and their ability to use SQL.

It's an ideal test for pre-employment screening. A good Python developer needs to be able not only to solve problems using Python but also to write and analyze SQL queries to access a database.

This online test requires candidates to solve coding problems in Python and to write SQL queries that extract, combine, and manipulate data.

SQL Aggregation Public

Given the following data definition, write a query that returns the number of students whose first name is John. String comparisons should be case sensitive.

TABLE students
   id INTEGER PRIMARY KEY,
   firstName VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL,
   lastName VARCHAR(30) NOT NULL

SQL Conditions Update Public

A table containing the students enrolled in a yearly course has incorrect data in records with ids between 20 and 100 (inclusive).

TABLE enrollments
  id INTEGER NOT NULL PRIMARY KEY
  year INTEGER NOT NULL
  studentId INTEGER NOT NULL

Write a query that updates the field 'year' of every faulty record to 2015.

Binary Search Tree

Python Algorithmic thinking Data structures Public

A three-node binary tree.Binary search tree (BST) is a binary tree where the value of each node is larger or equal to the values in all the nodes in that node's left subtree and is smaller than the values in all the nodes in that node's right subtree.

Write a function that, efficiently with respect to time used, checks if a given binary search tree contains a given value.

For example, for the following tree:

  • n1 (Value: 1, Left: null, Right: null)
  • n2 (Value: 2, Left: n1, Right: n3)
  • n3 (Value: 3, Left: null, Right: null)

Call to contains(n2, 3) should return True since a tree with root at n2 contains number 3.

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 criticizes the others. Many of these methods look legitimate, but are based on...
