Take Your Assessment

Each test will have a time limit of 60 minutes, during which you will complete questions and challenges specific to the type of test. There is no pause button.

There are two types of tests, based on the desired skill set for the position.

Front-End — Skilled in HTML, CSS, and JavaScript, the front-end WordPress developer is the builder of themes, landing pages and the trusty bridge between design and code.

Back-End — Using OOP, Hooks and Filters, and SQL queries to build functionality, this is your solid WordPress developer, the creator of new plugins and integrations, the custom solutioneer.

Types of Questions

In order to assess the breadth of your skills with the WordPress platform, we’ve developed challenges in the form of several question types. These include multiple choice, true/false, short answer, multiple answer, and sorted choice.

Live Coding Challenges

On top of all the various questions, we always have live coding challenges to test how you interact with different coding languages. These IDE unit tests will allow you to show off your ability to fix syntax errors, write functions, resolve bugs, and more.

navigate and star assessment questions

Navigate & Star Questions

Throughout the test, you will be able to simply navigate through all the questions. You can star questions you’d like to revisit later and clearly see questions you’ve answered and those yet to be completed. If you answer all the questions within the time, you can choose to officially complete the assessment.  Or, if time runs out, the test will immediately finish.

submit your score

Submit Your Score (Or Don’t)

Once all questions have been answered or time elapses, you will get the opportunity to submit your final score to the employer. If you aren’t pleased with your score, you can choose not to submit your final score.

If you chose to not submit your score, you can ask the employer for a retake. Customize the message you want to send and wait for their response. You’ll either get a second chance or you’ll wait for the next invite.
