Android Developer Test

The Android developer test is a useful recruitment tool if you're looking to hire Android developers for your development team. The test will help to ensure the candidates you take forward have the relevant knowledge and skills to do the job successfully. Using an Android developer test will help you save time and money when building successful teams.

  • What is an Android developer test?

    The Android developer test assesses everything from knowledge of the Android software development kit (SDK) to the application life cycle through to problem-solving and best practice using multiple-choice questions.

    As the most prevalent mobile operating system in the world, it's little surprise that Android developers are in demand globally. This test offers an additional way to bolster your recruitment process by putting candidates through their paces and challenging them to prove their Android understanding and skills.

    To do well, candidates need to demonstrate their in-depth knowledge by answering as many questions correctly as possible. Candidates who showcase an impressive number of correct answers, and an ability to finish the test will show that they're competent Android developers with an ability to keep calm under pressure.

About the Android Developer Test

The Android developer test covers a range of key skill sets needed to be a successful developer using the Android software development kit (SDK).

Without proven ability and knowledge, developers will struggle to work successfully as an Android developer, so this test is becoming an essential part of the recruitment process for conscientious employers and recruiters.

  • Why should you use an Android developer test for recruiting?

    As well as helping you to recruit the best person for the job, the test can ensure your hiring processes are fair and bias free. The Android developer test helps to level the playing field for candidates and make decisions easier for recruiters.

    If each applicant is scored on their answers to the same set of questions, it should be a fairer process as well as an easier way for you to decide who you're going to invite to the next stage of the process.

    Android development is a specific skillset that is virtually impossible to evaluate without a test such as this. Whether it's assessing a candidate's competency using Javascript or their basic knowledge of configuration, the test will give you peace of mind that your new hire has the skills required to be a strong Android developer for your business.

    The Android developer test is suitable for job roles including:

    Applicants who score above a certain mark can be taken forward for an interview, while those who don't meet the required standards can be removed from the process. This ensures you spend your time meeting the right people.

How our test assesses android developer skills

Candidates will need to answer a range of questions that measure industry-specific technical skills where applicable (e.g. programming tests), soft skills (e.g. time management), aptitude (e.g. error checking) and relevant personality dimensions (e.g. team orientation). The results present a holistic view of how well suited each candidate is for the job at hand, using a data-driven approach.

The format varies by type of question, including multiple-choice for aptitude and technical skills, situational judgement for soft skills and agreement on a Likert scale for the personality dimensions. This approach ensures candidates are being assessed in an accurate and fair manner, and that results reflect the true underlying qualities of each candidate.

The characteristics, abilities and knowledge necessary to be an android developer were identified using the US Department of Labor's comprehensive O*NET database. O*NET is the leading source of occupational information that is constantly updated by collecting data from employees in specific job roles.

During the development process, test questions were rigorously analysed to maximise reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. They were created by our team of I/O psychologists and psychometricians – who collaborated with subject-matter-experts – and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying experience, just like you might find in a talent pool.

Each test is reviewed by a panel of individuals representing diverse backgrounds to check for any sensitivity, fairness, face validity and accessibility issues. This ensures each candidate has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of expertise.

Our android developer test is monitored to ensure it is up-to-date and optimised for performance.
