We are constantly updating HackerRank for Work with new improvements and fixes. Here is a summary of customer facing updates we have made from January 1st 2019 to April 1, 2019.
What’s New in HackerRank for Work
Test Health Dashboard
The Test Health Dashboard offers an up-to-date view into the health of every HackerRank assessment. Combining insights on candidate response and assessment quality, you can now take immediate action to increase the efficiency of your candidate funnel and hire more quality candidates across job roles and experience levels.
Role Based Assessment Improvements
Powerful New IDE for Role Based Assessment Questions
This upgrade significantly changes the candidate experience for candidates attempting to solve Front-end, Back-end or Full-stack Developer type questions and brings candidates closer to a desktop like IDE experience. Candidates will be able to leverage better and more insightful autocomplete and linting, and debug Java code inside the browser. We have also significantly improved the offline working experience for candidates who still prefer working on their local IDE.
Read-only files support for Role Based Assessments
Front-end, Back-end and Full-stack Developer questions now support read-only files. Files marked as read-only cannot be modified by the candidate. Learn more about it here.
Browse Code in Role Based Assessments
For reports generated in the new IDE, you can now browse code (without launching an IDE session), view git commit history and see code diff commit by commit.
- As part of this feature, download zip has been removed from the report page to the browse code page.
- Browse code feature will be available for attempts made on new IDE only. Older reports will continue to show code diff button.
- The new IDE includes a new Pre-login tutorial
- Candidates must now choose between their local IDE and online IDE workflows before starting the question. They can change this after they begin the question.
- Candidate git push will fail when read-only files are modified
Support for Safari in CodePair
Interviewers and candidates can now use the Safari browser in a CodePair session.
Support for Approximate Questions in CodePair
Questions with an approximate solution can now be imported into a CodePair session.
Archive CodePair Chats
CodePair chats can now be automatically sent to an FTP server for long term archival and auditing. Contact your Customer Success Manager if you want to set this up.
Limit to Concurrent Test Attempts
To ensure a high quality experience for all candidates actively taking a test, we have added in a limit to the number of concurrent candidates we support. This limit is 10,000 candidate attempts.
Changes to Existing Behavior
- Candidates who are taking a test with a Role Based Assessment question will now see a choice between local IDE or online IDE when they start the question. They can later switch.
