Skills covered by an HTML online test
What to look for in HTML developers
HTML, along with CSS, is one of the most fundamental coding languages out there. In fact, HTML is used so abundantly that the majority of developers have at least a basic understanding of it. The problem with a programming language being so widely used is that it can be easy to find a developer who can use HTML, but harder to narrow the search down to finding the right one. In fact, often an HTML developer is not even a stand-alone position and is just one of the skills of a front end or full-stack developer.
While the basics might be simple, advanced applications in HTML require in-depth skill and understanding. A DevSkiller HTML online test will go a long way towards helping you filter out the less qualified candidates, but it will be helpful if you know what to look for in an HTML developer.
It is important to find out how knowledgeable and up to date your candidate is with regards to various components of front end tech stack. This will include HTML frameworks like Bootstrap (v4) and Foundation (v6).
An essential skill your developer should possess is to be able to view web pages or applications from the user’s perspective (UX). Knowledge of Responsive Web Design (RWD) is another important technique it would be useful to possess. Other than that, it might also be helpful if your candidate can possess an understanding of a11y (accessibility), relating to how websites are built to account for people with disabilities.

Frequently asked questions
What is RealLifeTesting™ ?
The RealLifeTesting™ methodology forms the basis of each DevSkiller HTML online test. This unique testing methodology provides recruiters with a holistic view of each candidate’s HTML skillset.
At its core, RealLifeTesting™ is based on the concept that the best way to evaluate a developer’s skills is by presenting them with challenges similar to the work they do every day. A DevSkiller HTML online test requires each candidate to build full project apps or add features to existing apps, similar to what they’ll be doing once they’re hired. To progress, candidates will need to demonstrate their knowledge of HTML coding, be able to use resources like Stack Overflow to find solutions, and show decision-making skills to find the best solutions to the problems they encounter.
How is an HTML online test evaluated?
Once a candidate is finished with their HTML online test, the DevSkiller platform automatically gets to work on assessing the results. An automatically generated report is then produced that is designed to be as easy to follow as possible, so that even non-technical recruiters can understand the results. Candidates are evaluated on whether the solutions they have provided would run, the quality of the code they have provided including checking for errors, and how the solution would perform in edge cases. DevSkiller also implements a number of robust anti-plagiarism tools to ensure candidates cannot gain an unfair advantage and to maintain test accuracy.
How do candidates take an HTML online test?
Each HTML online test can be accessed remotely, from anywhere in the world. This is a great advantage to recruiters, as it saves countless hours and money spent on in-house testing.
With DevSkiller, all the recruiter has to do is send the candidate a test invite and they can begin their assessment whenever they have the time. To make sure recruiters aren’t left waiting around, test invites can be made available for only a specific amount of time.
When actually taking the test, the candidate has the option of using DevSkiller’s own state of the art in-browser IDE, or they can complete the project on their favorite IDE and clone the project to GIT. Candidates are also able to run unit tests to make sure their solutions work the way they intend. Once an HTML online test is completed, the test is automatically evaluated and an easy to follow report is sent to the recruiter. DevSkiller testing is designed to make the whole developer screening process as quick and as automated as possible.
