What to look for in HTML and CSS developers
HTML and CSS are two of the most fundamental coding languages and the majority of web developers possess at least a basic understanding of both. One might argue that while it may be easy to get to know the basics of HTML and CSS, getting to know the advanced applications of either language, requires a little more skill and understanding.
It is also important how knowledgeable and up to date your candidate is with regards to various other components of the front end tech stack, including CSS preprocessors (Sass, CSS-Crush) and HTML 5 frameworks (Skeleton, Kickstart). It will also be helpful if your developer can demonstrate knowledge of animations, including being able to demonstrate skills in Responsive Web Design (RWD) and finally, in a11y (accessibility), which has to do with the way websites are built to account for people with disabilities. The aim is to make web pages easier to digest for those who have disabilities.

You can tailor DevSkiller HTML and CSS online tests to suit your needs. You can set the language tested, the difficulty level, and the duration.

Still unsure about our HTML and CSS online tests
If this HTML and CSS online tests sound good but you need a little convincing, have a look at the following case study:
ImpacTech develops Business Intelligence solutions driven by Big Data in combination with Artificial Intelligence.
Before turning to DevSkiller, ImpacTech’s entire recruitment process was carried out offline. It was difficult to evaluate a candidate’s skills based on an interview alone, meaning more interviews than were necessary had to be carried out. The whole process was slow and inefficient and 198 interviews were used to make only 28 hires. DevSkiller changed all that.
DevSkiller’s testing allowed ImpacTech to whittle down candidates by 83%, resulting in 39% less interviews being carried out, saving valuable time. DevSkiller’s automated evaluation process allowed Impactech to effortlessly work out which candidates possessed the right skills.
Ivana Nikolic HR Manager at ImpacTech
“DevSkiller is a time-saver for all the parties involved. We were able to improve our quality of hires, hiring diversity, and cost per hire”
“After switching to DevSkiller, non-viable candidates are now eliminated much earlier in the recruitment process, thus saving us valuable time. Additionally, automatic evaluation done by DevSkiller itself has also saved time”
Frequently asked questions
What is RealLifeTestingTM?
The RealLifeTestingTM methodology is at the heart of all DevSkiller testing, including HTML and CSS online tests. RealLifeTestingTM revolves around a principle of testing a developer’s skills by recreating the challenges they would face in their daily work. By doing this, RealLifeTestingTM can provide a more holistic view of each applicant’s skills, much more than with traditional game-like quizzes, or algorithmic puzzles.
The kind of skills each candidate is required to pass include possessing a good knowledge of coding, the ability to understand resources like Stack Overflow, and showing critical thinking.
Results are automatically generated, making the tests an efficient way to screen candidates.
How do candidates take HTML and CSS online tests?
One of the main advantages of DevSkiller is tests are accessed remotely, meaning candidates can work at a time and place most convenient to them. Recruiters can set time-limits if required progress can be monitored in real-time. Tests are then automatically evaluated.
While working, candidates can use our state of the art in-browser IDE or complete the project on their favorite IDE and then clone the project to GIT. During the test, candidates can run unit tests to ensure their solutions work.
How long does it take to set up DevSkiller for HTML and CSS online tests?
Setting up your first HTML and CSS online test takes as little as 5 minutes. DevSkiller has an extensive library of pre-defined CSS and HTML tests, meaning that all you have to do is set up your account and you can start testing candidates straight away.
Do I need to be a programmer to use DevSkiller HTML and CSS online tests?
Certainly not. We made our DevSkiller HTML and CSS online tests as simple to use and as automated as possible, doing the hard work for you. Our tests are prepared ready-to-use and are designed to allow users to verify the technical skills of the candidates screened, without requiring technical knowledge themselves. If you do have someone more tech-savvy on-site, you can even prepare a test from scratch.
What do you do about plagiarism?
Plagiarism is a serious matter and we treat it that way. DevSkiller tests are automatically evaluated and at the same time, scanned for any duplications in coding that may be replicated from past tests. We can also monitor tests using screen recording to make sure the candidate is looking at only one screen during testing, check a candidate’s IP address, and use live pair notifications. With all of these tools combined, we can categorically rule out the chance of deception when it comes to test results.
