Hiring Managers will learn about generating and using code stubs in their programming-related questions.
What are code stubs?
Code stub is a piece of code that can be given to the candidates as a Kickstarter in the Test. Code stubs are useful because they save the candidates' time and allows you to test their problem-solving skills better, rather than testing their memory.
To generate code stubs
- Login to your WeCP account as a Recruiter or Hiring Manager.
- Select the concerned Test from the home page and navigate to the Questions tab at the top.
- Click on the down arrow in the Section, to view all the questions of that section, or click on Expand All to view the questions in all the sections.
- Choose the question for which you want to generate a code stub and click on the pencil icon corresponding to it.
- Further, in the Question Editor, click on the Codestub generator tab and configure the following details:
- Function name: Enter the name of the readymade function that you want to provide to the candidate.
- Function return type: Enter the return type of the same function.
- Further, if you want to add a variable, click on the + New variable button below it.
For the variable that you want to add, you must specify the following parameters:
- Type: Enter the data type of the variable.
- Variable Name: Enter the name of the variable.
- Size: Specify the size of the variable.
- Pass to Function: Mark this checkbox if you want to pass the variable to the function.
- Delete: At some point, if you want to delete that variable, click on the Delete icon corresponding to the variable.
- Every time that you want to add a new variable, click on the Add variable button and specify all the required details.
- After adding all the variables, click on Generate Code Stub.
- Choose the programming language of your choice from the drop-down menu to check the code stub in that language. Following is an example code stub in the Python3 language:
- You can also manually make changes to the code stub as per your choice.
- Don't forget to click on Save Question to save all the changes.
- This code stub will be visible to the candidates in the code editor below the question in the Test environment and act as a Kickstarter for them in the Test.
