About the test

The WordPress online test assesses knowledge of creating and customizing web sites with the WordPress CMS and the PHP programming language. 

The assessment includes work-sample tasks such as:

  • Working with plugins and themes to customize a website.
  • Configuring a Wordpress instance to tune performance and control access to features.
  • Implementing a function that serializes to/from JSON.

A good WordPress developer needs a solid understanding of the WordPress CMS and the PHP programming language to create websites, as well as know how to configure and customize them using built-in WordPress features.

Sample public questions

1 min

A WordPress theme contains, among other things, all the files listed below. Which of these files will be used to display the homepage after this theme is activated?

5 min

You're maintaining the PHP back-end of a Tree Planting website.

The registerForEvent function is called by the server when interested people fill a form to register for a tree planting event.

The register function it calls performs the registration logic.

Consider the code for the registerForEvent function:

function registerForEvent($name, $seedBagsNeeded)
    $sanitizedName = filter_var($name, FILTER_SANITIZE_SPECIAL_CHARS);
    $filteredBagsNeeded = filter_var($seedBagsNeeded, FILTER_VALIDATE_INT);
    register($sanitizedName, $filteredBagsNeeded);

What is correct about the filtering and sanitization done in the code above?

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.
