Data Compass outperforms the market by achieving concurrent criterion validation for its Programming IQ assessment.
In psychometrics, concurrent criterion validation refers to a comparison between the measure in question and an outcome assessed at the same time. Data Compass completed its concurrent criterion validation study in March 2019.

We Measure Developer's Coding Skill, Industry Experience, and Problem Solving Ability.
Our Programming IQ diagnostic tests gauge the candidate’s technical and problem-solving skills on the fundamentals of programming. Candidates have 30 minutes to solve as many challenges as possible covering a mixture of but not limited to the following:
Data Compass determines the level of mastery of developers on various programming languages as well as the extent of their knowledge in application.
Data Compass enables hiring managers and recruiters to find top-notch developers using a metric-driven approach in candidate selection. Our assessment platform has both proficiency distribution graphs and a code replay feature to show comprehensive reports of candidates' performance on competency tests.
Programming IQ, or PIQ, measures programming intelligence rather than programming knowledge. High PIQ developers are more likely to positively influence code direction, grow into roles of increasing responsibility, and ultimately, make a more meaningful impact on a company’s technology.
To remove knowledge as an advantage or disadvantage, two decisions were made by our assessment committee:
Each developer can take the assessment using their preferred programming language.
Only the four building blocks of programming, which all developers know, is drawn upon to solve problems of variable difficulty.
To the non-programmer, these four building blocks can be compared to addition, subtraction, multiplication and division, which are the building blocks of math.
When developer assessment scores are compared to each other on a distribution curve, a massive separation in an ability to solve problems becomes apparent.
Regardless if you are hiring an entry-level or experienced developer, merely looking at their resume is not enough.
“In high growth mode, we have no shortage of applicants. The challenge has been in quickly screening candidates with reasonable accuracy such that we can focus sufficient time on the strongest applicants to get them through our funnel before they are courted by other companies. Data Compass assessments have enabled us to get to the right answer, fast, which has made an immeasurable impact.”
If you prefer no fall-out, make the assessments an optional opportunity for candidates to strengthen their application and gain momentum in your hiring process. They do not have to be a requirement.
