Types of Online Tests for Evaluating Oracle Programmers

If you want to assess the programming language skills of candidates, there are various domain-based and project-based tests you can use. Most of the domain-based tests offer expert-curated questions and coding scenarios to test standard skill sets in programming languages like Java, C++, Python, SQL, etc. Project-based tests help to narrow down your search and analyse any specific knowledge and skills of a particular programming language. Online assessment platforms offer you the flexibility to administer domain or project-based tests. They come with pre-set questions for quick test administering and reveals the candidate’s technical competencies in just a few simple steps.
