On-Demand Webinar | Disentangling Proficiency in Programming from Proficiency in English: Codility Meets cApStAn

Codility is the #1 rated recruitment platform for developers, helping world-class companies the likes of Microsoft, Intel and American Express to assess candidate programmers via skills-based coding tests.

The tests are administered in English, but often the candidates are not native English speakers. Hence the “pain point” identified by Codility: a too high level of English proficiency required to take Codility assessments may hamper the correct measuring of programming skills.

Codility turned to cApStAn, the language service provider with unparalleled expertise catering to the language needs of organizations that develop tests, assessments, surveys and learning content, resulting in the creation of a new service: analysis and adjustment of the language proficiency level of an assessment task.

Join us on May 18 for a 45-minute live webinar­—including live Q&A session—with Neil Morelli, Chief I-O Psychologist at Codility, and cApStAn co-founder Andrea Ferrari, who will walk you through the development of this new service. We look forward to seeing you there!
