Code Ground Online Testing Platform focuses on helping Recruiters conduct online screening assessments for thousands of candidates, so that the right candidates can be filtered for the interview process.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                

Recruiters can log in to Code Ground Online Assessment Platform, creates the Recruitment test and scheduled it for a specific time. Scores are automatically calculated after test completion and Recruiters can only ask those candidates who have scored above a certain cut-off to continue with the interview process.

Case Study                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                         Before using CodeGround Online Testing Platform, Abyeti Technologies used to visit 4-5 campuses every year. In 2016, Abyeti conducted online recruitment tests (without physical Campus Visits) for 40+ Engineering Campuses across India for recruiting freshers. They were able to widen their pool of applicants, while reducing hiring costs at the same time.

Greater Test Participation                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Please note than apart from ease of evaluation, online assessments also significantly increase the number of test participants. Recruiters can easily get participation rates of more than 500+ candidates from across India.

The Question Library                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        All Recruiters will have access to a question library from which they can pull in questions to be used for their screening tests. Recruiters can also create a private question bank and add their questions into it.

Assessment Types                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                These are the types of questions that are supported in CodeGround Online Assessment Software.

Multiple Choice Questions                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      These can be on any topic under the sun. To test a candidate on analytical skills and learning ability, we have questions on Mathematical Aptitude, Logical Reasoning, Pattern Matching and Data Interpretation. We also have questions on English Grammar and Vocabulary, Reading Comprehension and Listening Comprehension (audio embedded inside question body).

Programming Challenges on Data Structures and Algorithms                                                                                                                                                   You can ask candidates to solve programming challenges in various programming languages. We support JAVA, C, C++, Ruby, Python, PHP and JavaScript.

Debugging Challenges                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                 Here a program or a pseudo-code with some bugs in it is given to the candidate. The candidate is then asked to identify and solve those bugs.

Mini-Projects                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             In order to evaluate candidates on Hands-on Technical Skills, Recruiters can ask candidates to complete mini-projects on a variety of technologies such as AJAX, Android App Development, iOS App Development, HTML Design and Prototyping, Architectural Design (for Technical Architects), Test Plan Development (for QA) and Data Mining challenges (for SQL Data Analysts).

Voice Analysis/ Spoken English Assessment                                                                                                                                                                                                                               For BPO hiring, CodeGround supports audio capture from the candidate. Candidates can speak into the microphone to have their voice responses recorded.

Automated Interviews                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                    Recruiters can also schedule automated, asynchronous interviews in which candidates are asked to respond verbally to the questions that are typically asked in an interview, such as "Where do you see yourself five years from now?" or "What are your strengths and weaknesses?"

Cheating Prevention                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Web Cam Recording: Prevent impersonation and communication with others (over mobile or face to face) during test              

Window Proctoring: Test window is locked and candidate is unable to switch to other windows for chat, search etc. during the test

Code Comparison: Code submissions are compared for similarities. A red flag is raised if there are more than 85% similarities in code submitted by candidates

Random Pooling: A large pool of questions exists for the test and for each candidate a subset is randomly selected. This ensures that even if two candidates are giving the test sitting side by side in a campus laboratory, their questions are not the same.

Free Trial                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                             CodeGround allows Recruiters to sign up for a FREE TRIAL and evaluate up to 25 candidates.                                               They can be reached at +91-80-65555513 or [email protected].
