When it comes to Ruby on Rails, this assessment test will help you evaluate and assess virtually anyone’s knowledge and competency on the subject matter. Whether you’re hiring a developer or assessing the knowledge of an employee, the Ruby on Rails assessment test was designed to help you understand both the strong and weak points of any person.

As a well-known web application framework, testing for Ruby on Rails knowledge is essential to your hiring process. By using this test, you can have the confidence of making informed hiring decisions.

Which use cases can customers have for this test?

The test was designed to cover all aspects of the knowledge on Ruby on Rails. This will help test developers on their understanding of its popular programming framework. With its comprehensive structure, this test will help you determine a candidate’s ability to work across a full web stack from UI to Database. More than that, it will also help identify a developer’s strengths and weaknesses with an MVC (Model/View/Controller) architecture.

Which areas (chapters) will be covered in the test, and why was it chosen that way?

Controllers

Controllers are the gateway into an application on the server side of the application stack. To build a successful application, knowledge of routing, actions and REST will provide a solid foundation for an enterprise class app. Controllers, concerns and callbacks are necessary to be proficient with when working with a Rails app.

Models

Models are the data backbone for your application. Good data models allow you to store data efficiently, create data relationships and allow your app to scale and function properly. Rails provides excellent data tier modeling with ActiveRecord along with the ability to migrate and manage your data structures. All good Rails developers should have strong experience and knowledge in this space.

Views

Views allow the users of your application to interact with and work with the app. Without a view layer, most applications wouldn’t be able to function or provide any value. Rails provides good templating and view layers out of the box. Understanding how to display, modify and work with information from a User Interface perspective is a vital web developer skill.

Misc: Rake, Caching, Action Mailer, Generators, Jobs

The best developers learn how to work efficiently by utilizing tooling and tricks provided by the framework. Rails provides great toolkits to handle basics from code generation to advanced needs like background jobs. Developers can speed their development velocity by knowing and using the built in framework’s miscellaneous tools.
