Developing a Short and Simple IQ Test Online Using PHP
January 14, 2009 @ 14:51:27

DevShed has posted a new tutorial introducing PHP and MySQL interaction by developing a simple online IQ test.

If you are a school administrator wanting to have an IQ test online, then this tutorial is for you. It can be used not only in the field of academics, but in the instances where you need to draw user interest to your website. An IQ test is a popular feature to incorporate into your website, and will attract a large amount of web traffic over time.

The test takes a few things into consideration - how long it takes the person to take the test, the user-friendliness of the interface and the speed that the results are given back to the user. It also includes the scoring system behind the test (weighted based on age and test question levels).

Interviewing Programmers 101 - Part 3
August 15, 2007 @ 11:14:00

Nick Halstead has posted part three of his series looking at interviewing programmers (here's part one and part two) with more of a focus on the details of the individual including their knowledge of code and general abilities.

In the murky past I wrote two article about interviewing programmers. The first covered the basics of interviewing itself and gave (hopefully) a good grounding for those who have never had to interview before. The second was all about the kind of testing you can do to filter out candidates before you commit to doing a full interview. [...] At the time I then promised to write a third section on what types of tests to use during the interview. Well I finally got round to finishing it off.

This time, he suggests things like specific language testing for your company's language of choice, an IQ test, seeing how they "pseudo code" and some psychometric testing. Basically, this boils down to measuring both the individuals potential and how good they will be in the position you're interviewing for.
