Enable reference search in the code editor

How to turn on/off reference search and understand candidate reports

It is common for engineers to "Google search" for syntax and best practices when coding. We've developed a feature called reference search to simulate that experience right from the Assessment code editor. Candidates love it and it offers a much better portal into how candidates think, troubleshoot, and code.
