Django Test

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

  • What is a Django test?

    Django is a web application framework written in Python (a high-level programming language).

    The Django test assesses the technical skills and strengths of developers working with the Django framework.

    The test covers everything from an individual's general knowledge of Django, to their understanding of models, ORM, views and serializers.

    The test takes 10 minutes to complete. It's fast-paced, so it's important candidates are up to speed with the questions they might encounter.

    As more and more companies invest in tech and developers, Django tests are becoming frequently used in a wide variety of different industries.

About the Django Test

Principally, the test assesses an individual's knowledge of the Django framework.

It also examines the individual's judgement when it comes to making decisions, industry best practice, code architecture and APIs.

There are a few questions that only serious Django pros could answer, so a perfect score indicates a developer who really knows their stuff.

The Django test is useful for businesses that are looking to hire a backend developer and want to ensure a certain level of proficiency in Django before offering a role.

  • Why should you use a Django test for recruiting?

    Django is a high-level Python web framework that enables a developer to design and code the backend of a web application; it is therefore not a skill set many people possess. So, if you're a business that uses Django, it's essential to hire backend developers who possess the level of proficiency that the Django test aims to assess.

    The skills examined by the test include areas related to the Django framework; it also examines general understanding of code architecture and APIs.

    The Django test includes several multiple-choice questions that evaluate general knowledge of the framework, and so is applicable for most roles that require Django skills.

    Because Django, and indeed Python, are specific, there isn't really another test that successfully probes a developer's skills and understanding of the framework. As a result, any recruiter or employer looking for a developer with Django experience is highly likely to include this test as part of the hiring process.

    The Django framework is used by businesses including Pinterest, Mozilla and Instagram.

    The Django test is suitable for hiring Django and Python developers. Other occupations might include:

    • Computer Programmers
    • Software Developers
    • Web and Digital Interface Designers

Results for the Django Test along with other assessments the candidate takes will be compiled to produce a candidate report. The report is automatically generated and available both online and as a downloadable pdf so they can be shared with other team members and employees alike.

How our test assesses Django skills

In Picked's Django 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 solving common issues.

Candidates who do well in the test demonstrate the potential to design and code the backend of a web application, make decisions for the system architecture, and build cloud-based solutions in Python.

The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands Django 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 Django 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 Django proficiency and feels the test is of high quality.

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

What other similar skills are there to Django?

Django is a very specific framework that is written in the coding language Python and can lead to rapid application development. As a result, it's fairly limited in terms of comparable skills.

Any developers looking for a role working with the Django REST Framework will need to be proficient in working with Django, Python, Rails Framework or any other MVC framework.

Is Django a popular framework?

Django is one of the most popular frameworks, since it combines rapid application development with easy-to-use features. It's being used by more and more big businesses worldwide, meaning an increased appetite for Django-literate developers.
