Summary of the project

Despite being a crucial activity for developers, code reviews are often overlooked in interviews. However, they are an excellent way to assess a candidate's skills in a number of ways. When candidates get a chance to review code during an interview, it allows you to see their ability to spot bugs, evaluate code quality, and understand language-specific idioms. Code reviews also provide a unique opportunity to assess a candidate's written communication skills, as they articulate their thoughts on the pull request. With so much to gain, it's time for code reviews to become a standard practice during interviews.

Review a pull request

screenshot for Review a pull request
Code review plays a crucial role in ensuring the quality and maintainability of software projects. To create a code review assessment, the TakeHomes platform offers the ability to import git repositories with open pull requests. Once this repository imported into your account, we create a project for it that behaves like any other project—including the ability to configure a time limit. Each candidates will have their own unique private repository that is a clone of the imported repository. In this private repo, they can make comments on the open pull requests as a code reviewer. Once the time limit expires, they will no longer have access, but your team can review their comments at any time. At TakeHomes, we take industry standard development tools and enable you to use them to hire with confidence.

This test is being made by a subject-matter expert

TakeHomes team

TakeHomes' team of software development experts has crafted this coding project. Like every project in our library, it undergoes continuous evaluation to ensure ongoing enhancements, following our standardized revision process.

Crafted with expert knowledge

Projects at TakeHomes are designed by subject matter experts. They assess potential subject-matter experts based on their knowledge, ability, and reputation. Before being published, each test undergoes peer review by another expert and is calibrated using feedback from hundreds of test takers with relevant subject experience. Our feedback mechanisms and unique algorithms enable constant improvement for our subject-matter experts' tests.
