Angular Test

Angular tests are designed to assess a programmer's knowledge and understanding of the Angular framework.

  • What is an Angular test?

    An Angular test assesses a developer's understanding of the Angular front-end web framework, including its features and best practices. The test will cover areas such as Angular components, directives, pipes and forms, services and RxJs modularity, and other core modules.

    To perform well in an Angular test and score high marks, a developer must be able to demonstrate to a potential employer an ability to build mobile and desktop web applications in the Angular framework.

    This will often include categories such as: designing and developing the UI for web apps; developing UX features; working closely with web designers; integrating Restful APIs; and ensuring high performance of applications. Other related skills might include HTML, CSS and JavaScript/TypeScript.

    Programmers are often categorised as junior, mid-weight or senior; applicants’ scores should indicate which level best applies to them.

About the Angular Test

Angular is one of the most widely used web application frameworks, with around 25% of front-end developers using it worldwide. As such, developers with experience in Angular are very much in demand. Our Angular test was designed by programming and psychometric experts to assess a candidate’s level of understanding of the Angular framework, to ensure you hire the most suitable candidate.

  • Why should you use an Angular test for recruiting?

    Hiring front-end developers has its challenges. For non-technical hiring managers and recruiters, it can be difficult to shortlist candidates without having a true understanding of an applicant's Angular knowledge.

    A programmer might state on their CV that they can code using the Angular framework or they may even submit portfolios of work or projects via GitHub – but if you don’t test them, how can you know for sure what their abilities are and what they contributed to projects?

    An Angular test helps solve that problem and can make decisions easier.

    The test evaluates an individual's competencies using best practices and advanced techniques, as well as questions designed around architecture following the Angular style guide. A recruiter can judge the strongest applicants in these areas, as well as which candidates have the highest level of ability.

    Once you’ve assessed your top picks, you can then move your shortlisted applicants to the next stage of hiring. This makes for a more efficient hiring process, as well as a more bias-free one.

    Job roles for which Angular might be a prerequisite include:

    • AngularJS Developer
    • Front-End Developer
    • Full-Stack Developer
    • Web Developer
    • Software Engineer
    • Angular UI Developer

    Angular is an essential skill for developers doing front-end work. It provides the foundation to build efficient, usable apps.

    Businesses might outsource agencies to build apps or hire in-house developers. Either way, it’s important to have high-quality code written that meets the standards of your other developers. Your recruitment process must ensure it makes the right hire and gets this right the first time around, or it could end up costing you and your teams.

How our test assesses Angular skills

In Picked’s Angular test, candidates will need to answer a range of questions targeting an intermediate level of proficiency, from demonstrating knowledge about the framework to interpreting code to solve common issues. The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands Angular based on a final test score, which can then be compared to the scores of other applicants.

The multiple- choice questions consist of one correct answer and two-to-four distractors. The distractors are mostly generic mistakes or misconceptions, which makes the test challenging and helps measure a candidate’s proficiency more accurately.

During the development process, the test was rigorously analysed to maximise reliability and validity in line with industry best practices. It was created and revised by programmers and psychometric experts, and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying Angular 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 programmer has a fair chance of demonstrating their true level of Angular proficiency and feels the test is high quality.

Our programming tests are monitored to ensure they are up-to-date and optimised for performance.
