Screen Candidates using Online Tests. Interview only candidates with proven hands-on technical expertise in Android App Development

Arithmetic Aptitude

Interested in hiring Android App Developers?

Suppose you are interested in hiring a good Software Developer with expertise in Android App Development. You post Job Descriptions on various online job portals and also partner with Candidate Sourcing Vendors. As a result, you end up with a pool of candidates interested in your job opening

What you have: 250 CVs from interested candidates.

What you don’t have: The time or the resources to conduct 250 interviews.

CV based filtering is extremely ad-hoc and often results in errors.

  • Candidates with in-depth knowledge on Mobile App Development can be ignored because their academics are not good or their CV is not well formatted
  • Candidates with good grades and neat CVs are often selected for interviews, even though they don’t have the relevant Software Technical Skills you are looking for.

Pouring over CVs from hundreds of candidates is also a painful, time-consuming activity

Our Recruitment Testing Philosophy

Our Recruitment Testing Philosophy is simple: “Align the recruitment tests for a role with the actual duties that a candidate must fulfill on a daily basis, if hired for that role.?

We believe that this alignment will help Recruiters maximize their Interview Hit Rate and reduce Cost per Hire

Logical Reasoning
CodeGround Online Tests are auto-evaluated resulting in significant cost savings

Our Recommendation:

Ask all interested candidates to take the Android App Developer Screening Test hosted by CodeGround Recruitment Testing Platform. [Link to Sample test for Android]

  • You can ask MCQs on Android Platform
  • You can give programming questions along with test cases and ask candidates to write code to satisfy the test cases. For Android, you should test candidates on Java.
  • You can share code with some bugs and ask candidates to debug it to address all corner cases
  • You can give a mini-project , asking the candidates to complete the project in a 2 day duration. (see illustration)

Illustration – Calculator Mobile App

The candidate can be presented with a Simple Calculator Android App that has a few bugs in it.

The + and the – operations seem to be reversed

  • as wide as possible on one end, so that potential candidates are not missed out
  • as narrow as possible on the other end, so that interviewers do not waste time on irrelevant candidates

You can source candidates from all over India without wasting money on air travel.

You can also avoid wasting the time of your engineering colleagues in interviewing irrelevant candidates.

Question Pooling

Hackathons are an excellent way to improve your brand reputation among Tech Students

  • Are you a new startup that no one has heard of? Are you struggling to convince graduates with options to join your firm?
  • Conduct Online Hackathons to build your brand among the Tech Community on Campuses.


The platform provides capabilities to conduct all online assessments in a fair manner.

Webcam Monitoring prevents cheating and impersonation

WebCam Monitoring

The candidate is monitored via webcam to ensure that there is no impersonation and that the candidate does not communicate with others in person or using mobile during the test.

Window Proctoring

The test window is proctored. If the candidate navigates away from the test window (for instance, to use google search), multiple warnings are given. If the warnings are ignored, the test is ended immediately and a red flag is raised in the report.

Window Proctoring locks the test window and prevents candidates from switching to other browsers (chat, search etc) during tests
Copy Detection is applicable for coding submissions. We ensure that code submissions from two different candidates are not very similar

Copy Detection

When code submissions by any two candidates are too similar (>85% similarity), a red flag is raised indicating possible code plagiarism.

Random Pooling

Each candidate taking the test can be given a smaller set of questions that are randomly selected from a large pool of questions.

Questions for each candidate are randomly selected from a large pool of questions
