How our Spring interview questions and online tests work

DevSkiller coding tests are powered by our proprietary RealLifeTesting™ methodology. What makes this methodology special, is that it requires candidates to undertake coding tasks, questions, and challenges that mirror real-world work. Unlike outdated methods such as whiteboard testing or algorithmic puzzles, our Spring online tests will provide clear and objective insight into the candidate’s Spring coding ability. Best of all, with DevSkiller Spring coding tests, you’ll see the candidate’s critical thinking ability and time-management skills in action as they undertake their tests. 

Key features

  • Determine the candidate’s coding ability and not just their academic knowledge
  • Remote testing means tests can be taken anywhere in the world, anytime
  • The RealLifeTesting™ methodology offers a unique testing platform where candidates can opt to use their own IDE, clone to Git, run unit tests, and access Stack Overflow, GitHub, and Google for research.
  • A string of anti-plagiarism tools to ensure test accuracy and fair results
  • Observe tests in real-time 
  • Automatically generated results that are non-technical friendly

What to look for in Spring developers

Spring is an application framework that came into being in 2003. Spring simplifies the process of creating Java enterprise applications. It affords everything a developer would need to embrace the Java language in an enterprise environment.

What do people say about Spring online tests and interview questions?

Like the look of our Spring coding tests but need a little extra nudge? We understand that company financial decisions must be well thought out before coming to any conclusions. Instead of listening to us, take a listen to what one of our happy customers has to say:

Criteo is a leader in commerce marketing that allows B2B companies to construct and personalize ad campaigns across multiple sectors. Every year, Criteo hires roughly 100 technical professionals worldwide to handle its operations. Before switching to DevSkiller, they would send a take-home case study to filter out interview candidates, however, this came with many challenges. Firstly, it was difficult to keep track of progress or insight into how the work was completed (including whether any plagiarism was involved).  There were also problems with candidates dropping out in the early screening phases. Overall, the hiring process was delayed due to inconsistent results and several unnecessary interviews. After successfully implementing DevSkiller, Criteo overhauled their tech recruitment process and introduced DevSkiller technical screening tests prior to the first interview. On average they’ve saved between 2 and 4 days per every hire. 

“Per every hire, we’ve saved on average 2 to 4 days which is significant given that we hire 100 people using DevSkiller every year. We’ve certainly improved the conversion rate between the first and second interview with fewer candidates dropping at test stage and hiring managers interviewing with the most skilled candidates,” – Julien Gautiez – Talent acquisition manager at Criteo

Frequently asked questions

What is RealLifeTestingTM?

The RealLifeTestingTM methodology is the basis of all DevSkiller coding tests. It goes beyond old formats such as whiteboard testing or algorithmic puzzles and instead tasks candidates with real-world problems to solve. At its core, The RealLifeTestingTM stems from the belief that the best way to evaluate a developer’s development skills is with a work sample test that mirrors the actual development work they’ll do. Our Spring online tests require candidates to build full project apps or add features to existing apps, just like they’ll be doing after being hired. To do this they will need to show their knowledge of coding, in stack resources, resources like Stack Overflow to find solutions and decision making to find the best way to solve the problems they encounter. The results not only offer insight into the candidate’s academic knowledge but also their coding skill, code-cleanliness, critical thinking, decision making, and time-management skills.

How do candidates take a Spring coding test?

DevSkiller Spring coding tests can be sent to candidates all over the world. It’s as simple as setting up your account and sending a test invite. These invitations can be set to a certain amount of time to ensure there is no delay. Candidates can choose to undertake the test at a time that suits their needs and they have the option of using our state of the art in-browser IDE or completing the project on their favorite IDE and then cloning the project to Git. Throughout the test, candidates can run unit tests to make sure their solutions work the way they are supposed to. The test lasts for a set amount of time. At the end of the time limit, the test is automatically evaluated and the report is sent to the recruiter.

How long does it take to set up DevSkiller?

Setting up DevSkiller takes as little as five minutes. Once you’ve registered your account you can choose from our extensive range of predefined Spring online tests that vary in length and difficulty. Start testing your candidates right when you set up your account, no other work required.
