You can view the Test report of a candidate after the candidate has taken a test. For Front-end, Back-end, and Full-stack project-type Questions, the report displays a Candidate's performance score based on the scoring mechanism specified. You can carry out further review and evaluation by downloading or launching the Candidate's project directly in an IDE.
- You must be logged in to your Hackerrank for Work account.
- The candidate must have attempted the test and a report must have been generated.
- Click the Tests tab and then click the required test name from the displayed list.
- Click on the Candidates option on the pane below the test name, and then click the required button from the left-hand pane that shows various candidate status options.
- Click on the candidate name to view the report for the required candidate.
- You can view the Summary, Detailed, and Timeline tabs. Click each tab to view different details.
- In the Detailed tab, you can see the test case-wise split-up of scores, and download or review the Candidate's submitted code in an IDE.
The Report provides two different options to evaluate the Candidate's solution in the submitted project files.
Different options to review the submitted code
- Click Review in IDE to automatically open the Candidate's project in an IDE and review the submitted solution. You can directly make changes to the candidate's code, run and test it to figure out where exactly the candidate made a mistake. This approach does not require downloading the project locally.
Note: The IDE session is active only for 30 minutes and any changes made during the session are not saved.
- Click Browse code to open and review the Candidate's submitted project files. A new browser window displays the updated project files, commits, and comparison of the files. You can download the project files and test the solution locally.
After reviewing the report, you can click the Candidate Status button to change the candidate's status to one of the available options depending on whether the Candidate's performance qualifies for further steps in the hiring process. For example, if the Candidate's Test performance proves satisfactory, you can set the status to "Test Completed - Qualified".
