Screen candidates with the highest quality questions

We have a very high focus on the quality of questions that test for on-the-job skills. Every question is non-googleable and we have a very high bar for the level of subject matter experts we onboard to create these questions. We have crawlers to check if any of the questions are leaked online. If/ when a question gets leaked, we get an alert. We change the question for you & let you know.

How we design questions

Test candidates on core XML Web Services & XML Hiring Test topics

XML Compatibility: XML compatibility refers to the ability of XML documents, schemas, and applications to work together seamlessly without any conflicts or issues. It encompasses aspects like data interchange, document structure, and adherence to XML standards. Measuring XML compatibility in this test allows recruiters to evaluate candidates' understanding of XML's interoperability and their ability to create and manage XML documents that align with established standards.

Utilities: XML utilities are software tools or libraries that provide functionality for working with XML data. These utilities can assist in tasks like parsing, manipulating, transforming, and validating XML files. By measuring knowledge of XML utilities in this test, recruiters can assess candidates' proficiency in using commonly used tools and libraries to efficiently work with XML data.

Comments: XML comments are annotations added within XML code that provide supplementary information or explanations. They are useful for documenting XML structure, explaining complex elements, or leaving notes for other developers. Including questions on XML comments in this test allows recruiters to evaluate candidates' ability to add, interpret, and utilize XML comments effectively.

Images: XML can be used to represent and embed image data within XML documents using formats like Base64 encoding. Understanding how to include images in XML and process them programmatically is a valuable skill for working with data-rich applications. Assessing knowledge of image handling in XML helps recruiters gauge candidates' abilities to work with multimedia content and integrate it seamlessly into XML-based systems.

Validation: XML validation refers to the process of checking an XML document against a set of pre-defined rules or schemas to ensure its correctness and conformance. It helps identify errors, inconsistencies, or missing elements within XML documents. Evaluating candidates' understanding of XML validation in this test allows recruiters to measure their ability to create XML documents that adhere to established rules and prevent data quality issues.

DTD: DTD (Document Type Definition) is a markup declaration language used to define the structure and permissible elements of an XML document. It provides a set of rules that validate XML content, specify entity references, and define data types. Including questions on DTD in this test enables recruiters to assess candidates' familiarity with this traditional approach to defining and validating XML structure before the introduction of XML Schema.

Linking: XML linking allows the establishment of connections between different XML documents or parts within a document. It enables the creation of hyperlinks, cross-references, and navigation paths for locating related content. Evaluating candidates' knowledge of XML linking in this test helps recruiters gauge their understanding of how to create and manage interconnected XML documents that facilitate seamless navigation and content discovery.

You can preview any of the 500+ tests and see the sample questions to decide if it would be a good fit for your requirements.

How do I interpret test scores?

The primary thing to keep in mind is that an assessment is an elimination tool, not a selection tool. A skills assessment is optimized to help you eliminate candidates who are not technically qualified for the role, it is not optimized to help you find the best candidate for the role. So the ideal way to use an assessment is to decide a threshold score (typically 55%, we help you benchmark) and invite all candidates who score above the threshold for the next rounds of interview.

I'm a candidate. Can I try a practice test?

No. Unfortunately, we do not support practice tests at the moment. However, you can use our sample questions for practice.
