Flutter Test

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

  • What is a Flutter test?

    Flutter is an open-source development framework that was designed by Google to allow for simple and straightforward app creation across different platforms by writing code just once. Flutter makes it easy for companies to bring app development in-house or outsource it to freelancers.

    The Flutter test assesses the candidate and their abilities to understand the syntax of the framework and use Flutter Widgets. Candidates will need to demonstrate their knowledge of Flutter architecture and how best to use layouts, packages and libraries to come up with a native solution that can be used on iOS, macOS, Android and the web via a seamless native app.

    Flutter is a useful tool for many businesses who want to be able to produce apps without having to outsource. The list of companies who take advantage of this collaborative tool include Google, eBay, BMW and Capital One.

    Flutter is also a way for companies with limited time (or budget) to create and maintain apps that are useful to their customers and to the business.

    The Flutter test presents realistic problems for which the candidate needs to find elegant and useful solutions. This will test not only their ability to use Flutter, but also demonstrate that they are thinking of the user experience and the goal of the app itself.

About the Flutter Test

The Flutter test evaluates candidates on their knowledge and skills in this area. Successful Flutter developers need to not only understand the essential concepts of the programming syntax and structure, but must also be able to apply that knowledge in a practical way to solve problems.

This test is a useful way to ensure that candidates have the required skills to use Flutter in a way that will benefit your company.

  • Why should you use a Flutter test for recruiting?

    Flutter tests can be used as a pre-employment assessment of skills and ability in using the app development framework, and for this reason, they are a good choice for job roles in software development and app development.

    Flutter developers need to be able to write good, clean code as well as dealing with any bugs and participate in the full development life cycle.

    The focus on real-world application in the test means that the knowledge of the platform is underpinned with knowledge of the user experience. By answering questions about creating a usable app in the test, businesses can assess the overall suitability of the candidate for the role.

    These skills can be difficult to assess in other means than through a test. Although Flutter is open-source and relatively simple to understand in comparison to some other programming fraemworks, the theory is only as useful as the application.

    As Flutter is best known for creating cross-platform apps, these tests are most suited for applicants who are being assessed for roles in app development, software engineering, front-end development and even project management. It is worth noting that Flutter is a relatively new development framework, which means that even the most well versed applicant will only have a few years of experience in using it.

    The test is simple to administer and allows recruiters to understand exactly how fluent the applicant is without additional bias, providing an easy to understand report on the performance of each candidate.

    Typical job roles might include:

    • Computer Systems Analyst
    • Computer Programmer
    • Software Developer
    • Computer Systems Engineers and Architect

Results for the Flutter 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 Flutter skills

In Picked's Flutter 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. The test is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands Flutter 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 reviewed by programmers and psychometric experts, and field-tested with a representative sample of job applicants who have varying Flutter framework 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 Flutter 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.

FAQs

What is Flutter used for?

Flutter is used by businesses to create multi-platform apps with one source code, crafting a native experience on each platform for a seamless experience without using different syntax or multiple codes. This means it is easy to update and maintain, no matter how the customer is accessing the app.

What other skills are needed for Flutter?

Although there are many Flutter-specific skills that a developer must have, there are some other skills that are important in app development, such as:

  • Knowledge of other software development languages specific to mobile like Dart, Kotlin or Swift (not mandatory but would be an advantage)
  • Knowledge of GIT
  • Other Android/iOS development experience
  • Good understanding of general computer science

A degree in computer science and six months or more proficiency with mobile app development is generally desirable.
