Laravel Test

The Laravel test is designed to assess a developer's understanding and level of proficiency using the Laravel framework for web development.

  • What is a Laravel test?

    The Laravel developer test assesses candidates’ skills and expertise in using Laravel, an open source PHP MVP framework used by developers to create and sustain web applications.

    Subject matter experts design the test to assess candidates’ knowledge of coding skills, PHP framework, web application development, and My SQL database. Candidates must have experience in both front-end and back-end development.

    In addition to theoretical knowledge of the framework, the Laravel test also assesses practical problem-solving and know-how to evaluate how well a candidate will be apply to apply their Laravel skills on the job. Candidates must have a detailed understanding of the Laravel framework and criteria to do well on the test and demonstrate the expected level of capability.

    The assessments are taken online and comprise a wide range of question types, ensuring a comprehensive and objective evaluation of relevant knowledge and skills. Laravel tests have become increasingly common as a timely, low-cost, effective way to assess candidates while providing a good testing experience.

About the Laravel Test

  • Why should you use a Laravel test for recruiting?

    The creation and upkeep of web applications requires a high level of technical expertise. To this end, the Laravel test focuses on how skilled the candidate is at using the PHP framework. These skills include the practice of coding and knowledge of different scripting languages, including PHP, HTML, CSS and JavaScript.

    Other tests may focus more tightly on basic skills within communication, academics and knowledge, and therefore lose this level of focus on candidate expertise and knowledge within this field.

    The Laravel assessment is ideal for a rigorous and effective recruitment process, enabling employers to secure candidates with an excellent understanding and application of their expertise and skills. It also tests how a candidate can apply their knowledge to realistic workplace situations, so the employer can be reassured that they can leverage their skills as soon as they take up their role.

    Additionally, we strive to give candidates a good testing experience by providing a brief, fair yet challenging assessment of strictly relevant abilities.

    The Laravel test is suitable for a wide range of different roles requiring knowledge of the framework, including:

    • Front-end and back-end developer
    • Web and PHP developer
    • Junior or senior Laravel developer

How our test assesses Laravel developer skills

In Picked’s Laravel test, candidates will need to answer a range of questions targeting an intermediate level of proficiency, from demonstrating their understanding of the Laravel framework and architecture to their coding skills.

The assessment is designed to indicate how well a candidate understands Laravel 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 Laravel 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 Laravel 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.
