How each Android test works
Each DevSkiller Android online test is powered by the RealLifeTesting™ methodology. Unlike other assessments of coding skills, each DevSkiller Android online test assesses an applicant’s skills through a series of challenges that mirror real-world work. Each DevSkiller TalentScore assessment delves deeper, past the general programming knowledge of candidates, to assess their coding ability, problem-solving skills, and time management.
- Determine an applicant’s coding ability and not just their academic knowledge
- Tests are available remotely and can be taken anywhere in the world
- The RealLifeTesting™ methodology offers a greater user experience where candidates can use their own IDE, clone to GIT, run unit tests, and access Stack Overflow/Github/Google for research.
- A series of stringent anti-plagiarism tools
- Monitor individual tests in real-time
- Results are automatically generated into a user-friendly report
- Assessment of Android developers at any difficulty level., from junior to senior developers
- Accurate skills assessment and automated test results
Skills covered in our Android online tests

What to look for in Android Developers
Android is the leading mobile operating system in use today – powering countless mobile devices all over the world. With Android apps available to users everywhere. The source code is developed by Google under the Android Open Source Project (AOSP). Subsequent versions are usually released annually and announced at Google I/O conferences.
During the screening process, it is important to determine the skill level of your Android developers. Qualified candidates should have in-depth knowledge of Android architecture as well as Android components. Your candidates should also understand Android libraries such as Android Support Library, Google Play Services, Retrofit, etc. In addition to this, experience in developing an Android application is a great way of verifying the candidate’s skills. If the app is available on the Google Play store, it should be downloaded and checked for how it looks, how it works, and how many times it’s been downloaded.
Each Android app is primarily programmed using Java. Knowledge of the core Java concepts and knowledge of how to code using Java are also essential. Each DevSkiller Android online test will challenge the knowledge of a candidate in various ways that will simulate their real experience as an Android developer. They have the chance to answer questions and give answers based on the fundamentals of Android programming to see how well they score.

Still not convinced you need an Android online test?
If you’re still not sure about our testing platform then check out this case study on one of our customers:
Spartez is a Platinum Top Vendor on the Atlassian Marketplace. The company focuses on the Atlassian and agile ecosystem by offering useful tools for both Server and Cloud. They also offer solid support to customers and evaluators. Before DevSkiller, Spartez had issues in their screening process that resulted in too many interviews, and wasted a lot of time trying to build their own in-house solution. The solution? DevSkiller, which took care of the hassle and solved their technical screening issues. Here’s what Patrycja Kiljańska, Talent acquisition specialist at Spartez has to say:
“We’ve replaced a high-maintenance in-house solution with DevSkiller. Our process looks the same, however, the product gives us better performance. The results are also way easier to assess.”
Frequently asked questions
What is RealLifeTestingTM?
The RealLifeTestingTM methodology forms the basis for all DevSkiller Android online tests. Unlike other coding challenges or algorithmic puzzles, The RealLifeTestingTM methodology goes further by providing a 360-degree view of the applicants skill set. At its core, The RealLifeTestingTM stems from the belief that the best way to evaluate a developer’s development skills is with a work sample test that mirrors the actual development work they’ll do.
DevSkiller Android online tests mirror work that applicants will encounter in the real world by asking applicants to build full project apps or add features to existing apps. For an applicant to be successful, they must use their coding skills to the best of their ability, utilize in-stack resources as well as resources like Stack Overflow, to find the solution in the most efficient way possible. Our Android online tests will demonstrate the applicants coding skill, critical thinking, code cleanliness, and time management.
How long does it take to set up a DevSkiller account?
Sending your first Android online test invite can take as little as five minutes. Our extensive library of predefined Android online tests means that everything you need is at your fingertips. Find your next Android developer with our easy to use platform and don’t look back.
What do candidates think of DevSkiller Android online tests?
At DevSkiller, we want to ensure that our coding tests are the best they can possibly be, so that’s why we seek out regular feedback from the candidates themselves. Our research has found that candidates are happy that they have a change to prove their actual software development skills rather than having to remember algorithms they haven’t thought of since getting their degree. They also like the fact that DevSkiller tests use normal coding tools and conventions like unit testing, and cloning to GIT from a personalIDE.
The only apprehension we’ve found is that developers are generally suspicious of algorithmic tests. That’s because these don’t actually test the skills that developers use day to day. Rather they dredge up academic work they haven’t carried out in years and test unneeded knowledge that is of no use in everyday code writing. When candidates are given DevSkiller programming tests, assessing their actual knowledge of the subject, they appreciate the difference and the fact that they can prove their skills in a fair setting through a relevant assessment.
What’s also important to remember is the more thorough the screening test, the less unqualified candidates will make it to the interview stage. Less interviews means less work for hiring managers without reducing the quality of hires.
