Cascading Style Sheet or CSS can be defined as simple design language that is used to design the layout and the look of a web page. CSS properties and selectors are used for a wide range of functions, from controlling the colour of the text and space between words to organising text around images or inserting sections in a web page. Web designers prefer to use CSS as there are many benefits in using this language. It saves design time as designers can create CSS code for a web page and use it for multiple HTML pages. Similarly, global changes can be implemented with minimum hassle. The biggest advantage of using CSS is that it is compatible with multiple devices. 

The numerous applications of CSS include creating frameworks and layouts for eCommerce websites, maintaining websites, designing social media websites and handling image files. CSS is also used to create flash animation and effects on web pages. In short, CSS plays a vital role in website designing. 

A CSS programmer needs to have in-depth knowledge of the commands and properties of CSS code. He/she should also be creative and innovative. Plus, the coder should be able to understand a client’s requirements and translate it into appealing web design. So, you need to evaluate all this aptitude and abilities when you recruiting CSS coders for your organisation. Traditional recruitment procedures that rely only on CSS interview questions may not help you find the right hires. Leverage technology and scientific-based tests to evaluate the skills and abilities of a candidate. Apart from the CSS interview questions, you can also make use of online assessments to improve your hiring accuracy.

Online Assessments to Evaluate Domain Knowledge of Programmers

As explained above, online assessments will greatly help improve your hiring accuracy when coupled with CSS interview questions. CSS assessment tests can either be objective type or project-based. Objective type questions such as multiple-choice questions, fill in the blanks, identify the error or find the output will help evaluate a candidate’s expertise in the domain. Subjective questions will only give you a broader picture of a candidate’s knowledge. Objective questions, on the other hand, focus on core concepts and details. So, the results of these tests will give you a clear picture of the abilities and capabilities of a candidate. Apart from domain-based tests, you can also administer behavioural, personality, and cognitive skill tests online to determine a candidate’s job and cultural fit. 

When it comes to project-based tests, you can use test case scenarios or real-time situations to access a candidate’s knowledge and expertise. These tests will assess a candidate’s ability to apply coding knowledge in a real-time situation. So, these tests will give you more accurate results compared to CSS interview questions. Apart from assessing a candidate’s domain expertise, online assessments also remove human bias and prejudice from the hiring process.
