WeCP (We Create Problems) uses a comprehensive approach to evaluate a candidate's abilities across various software domains. When it comes to project-based assessments, the evaluation process dives into various aspects of software development, including design, implementation, code quality, efficiency, and a robust testing strategy.

Understanding the Problem Statement

The candidate's ability to understand and interpret the project requirements is the first step in the evaluation process. It checks whether the candidate has a clear understanding of what needs to be done and how they plan to meet these requirements.

Design and Implementation

WeCP Project Evaluation Engine reviews the design of the solution and how well it aligns with the project requirements. This includes checking how the candidate structures their code, the algorithms they choose, and their application of principles of the specific technology or framework they're using.

Code Quality and Best Practices

WeCP assesses code quality based on the candidate's adherence to coding standards and best practices. This includes a review of code readability, maintainability, use of comments, consistent indentation, and the overall structure of the code.

Efficiency and Optimization

The solution's performance under different scenarios is an important evaluation criterion. It measures how effectively and efficiently the code handles different inputs and conditions, including edge cases and large data sets.

Testing: Unit Tests and E2E Tests

In software development, a good testing strategy is crucial. On WeCP, the tests fall into two categories:

Unit Tests

Unit tests are used to verify the functionality of specific sections of the code. They are designed to ensure that individual functions, methods, or components work as expected in isolation. Well-written unit tests can catch potential issues at the function or method level, checking if every component is functioning correctly. It indirectly evaluates a candidate's ability to write clean, maintainable, and well-structured code.

End-to-End (E2E) Tests

E2E tests validate the workflow of the application from start to finish. They simulate real user scenarios to ensure that the entire system, including the interaction between its components, works correctly. E2E tests help in checking the overall reliability of the application by testing it under different scenarios and evaluating if the candidate has developed a robust and reliable solution that can handle diverse conditions.


Lastly, the candidate is evaluated on their ability to adhere to submission guidelines and procedures.

The combination of these factors gives a comprehensive evaluation of a candidate's abilities. It's not just about writing code, but understanding the problem, designing an effective solution, implementing it with best practices, and testing the solution to ensure it works under various scenarios.

Remember, every project on WeCP is an opportunity to showcase your understanding, implementation, and testing skills. Make sure to leverage this opportunity and good luck with your assessment!
