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 like Microsoft, Intel, and American Express to assess candidate programmers via skills-based coding tests.

Many coding tests are administered in English, but not all candidates are native English speakers. Hence a “pain point” identified by Codility: a too high level of English proficiency required to take coding assessments may hamper the correct measurement 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.

Watch our on-demand webinar­—including a 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.
