Scoring and time period points for code challenges

How automatically graded candidate final scores are determined.

Candidates solving challenges on Coderbyte are rated on the following scales:

  • Algorithm challenges: 1-10
  • Front-end challenges (React, Angular, etc.): 1-10
  • Back-end challenges (Node.js, C#, etc.): 1-10
  • SQL, GraphQL, MongoDB challenges: 1-10

All of the challenge types above have test cases that run to make sure the candidates code produces the output it should. Each of those test cases is worth some number of points ranging from 1/2 a point to 1 point each.

Timing points

For the algorithm challenges, candidates are also scored on how fast they solve the challenge. So to get a perfect score (10/10), all the test cases need to pass and the candidate needs to solve the challenge in a specific amount of time.

With this, you can rank candidates based on if their code passes test cases and also on how quickly they solve the challenge. 

If for your Assessment you don't want to take into account how fast candidates solve those challenges, then you can disable this in your Assessment settings.
