Finding a report

To find a candidate’s report, go to My Tests and select the relevant test.

An arrow pointing towards the My tests menu item under the Screening tab in the left nav.

Select the candidate from the candidates list.

The candidates list is shown.

The candidate report pops out on the right.

  • Click Actions to export the report as PDF, share it, or anonymize/delete a candidate and their results.
  • Click View detailed report to access the candidate’s full report including completed answers.
The report tab got a candidate test is shown. It's broken down between Java results and SQL results. The test history for the candidate is below that.

Candidate report and score

Comparative score

Go to the test’s Candidates list and view the Comparative score.

An arrow is pointing to the comparative score column.

The comparative score is calculated in two different ways:

  • If it’s a new question with little comparative data, the score will be based on question difficulty.
  • Otherwise it is based on other candidates’ tests and scores.

To see the finer details about a comparative score, click on the candidate’s name.

The highlighted graph in the top left represents the candidate’s level. Here, the candidate is better than 96% of developers tested on the same or similar questions on CodinGame:

A red box surrounds the "Better than 96% developers" display on the candidate report.

Click on the information circle to see information about the rating.

The text of the information circle: "This data allows you to rank your candidate against developers who have taken a similar test." then a link to find out more.

The panel on the right reflects time spent on the test in relation to the total time allocated, as well as the candidate’s score in relation to the questions asked.

The display of candidate rank (1 of 8), test duration (22 minutes out of 53 minutes) and points (1560 our of 1920, or 81%).

Underneath, each domain your candidate has been evaluated on has a dedicated comparative score. 

Points and candidate results broken out by language. For Java, candidate is better than 88% of developers, for sql it is 92%.

Assessment criteria

Candidates are also awarded a score per assessment criteria.

Results broken down by criteria; here it is design, language knowledge, problem solving, and reliability.

When you hover over the criteria, you will be able to see more information on that specific criteria:

Design

This measurement gives and indication of the candidate's ability to implement standard solutions to common problems. A developer with a good level of proficiency in this skill will contribute to increase the quality (maintainability, extensibility) of your applications. It does not rely specifically on technology.
This skill is particularly important if, for example, you are looking for a developer who will have to work on the architecture of your applications and to develop long-term solutions.

Language knowledge

Measuring this skill allows us to determine the candidate's level of experience in the practice of a specific programming language.
This skill is particularly important if, for example, you are looking for a developer who will have to become quickly operational.

Problem solving

This skill corresponds to the candidate's ability to understand and to structure his reasoning in order to find efficient solutions to complex problems. It does not rely specifically on technology.
This skill is particularly important if, for example, you are looking for R&D developers.

Reliability

Reliability refers to the candidate's ability to achieve solutions that address specific cases. Developers with a high reliability score are likely to create more robust applications (less bugs).

Each of your test’s questions influences one or more of these criteria.

View detailed report

Click on View detailed report to view a candidate’s answers.

The answer your candidate selected is specified by the grey dot.

If a candidate’s answer is incorrect, Candidate’s answer is red,  and the correct answer is green below. You’ll also see a red X next to the question.

An example of a wrong answer result. There is a red x next to the question title and number at the top, a red x next to the word "result" at the bottom, and on the right it has the answer and the words "candidate's answer" is in red. the correct answer is shown as green.

If a candidate’s answer is correct, Candidate’s answer is green, and the correct answer is green below. You’ll also see a green tick next to the question.

An example of a wrong answer result. There is a green check mark next to the question title and number at the top, a green check next to the word "result" at the bottom", and on the right it has the answer and the words "candidate's answer" is in green. the correct answer is shown as green.

Sharing a report

To share a report with a colleague who does not have a CodinGame account, go to the test report you’d like to share. 

Click Actions.

A candidate results screen with an arrow pointing towards the "actions" button at the bottom.

Actions menu list displayed with an arrow pointing towards the export menu item.

Choose the export format, report type, whether to anonymize your candidate, and whether to include test ranking and the comparative score.

The export modal with an arrow pointing towards "export format" with the options "pdf file" and "csv file". Another arrow pointing towards "report type" with the options "simplified report" and "detailed report".

❗ Do NOT share detailed reports with candidates as they contain test questions.
