This article describes how to access and share assessment results for CodeSignal certified assessments, such as the GCA. Skip to a section using the following links:
- Accessing a certified assessment result
- Accessing a rejected (non-verified) assessment result
- Sharing an assessment result
To begin, log in to your company's CodeSignal account and navigate to the CERTIFY tab. Then, click CERTIFICATIONS to choose the appropriate assessment type.
Accessing a certified assessment result
From the CERTIFIED tab, search for your candidate by name/email. Note: The candidate's highest score will be shown here, even if it is not the most recent score.
Click on the candidate's name to view their coding report. Then click on the assessment.
To see the diff of the candidate's solution for the task, click on the row icon next to the task's name. On the left-hand side you'll see the code that the candidate was given when starting the task. On the right-hand side, you can see everything that the candidate changed for their final submission.
You can also view the candidate's final solution by clicking on the double row icon.
If the test contains a progressive task, you can view the candidate's final submission for each level.
Also, from here you can see different icons for Added and Modified files.
To view the task's description and the candidate's solution click on the double row icon.
You can also view the diff of the candidate's solution and any modified files within our IDE. Click on the row icon under the task's name.
To access a replay of a candidate writing their solution to a specific task, click on the blue replay button next to the task name in the candidate’s results.
To change the speed of the coding replay, use the controls at the bottom of the replay screen. You can speed it up to 32x. By default, the replay will skip any portions in which the candidate was not actively coding.
By default, you the option to follow a candidate's cursor is turned on. To turn off cursor following, click the "Unfollow" button in the bottom left navigation.
Similarity score will share insights with respect to the integrity of a candidate's solutions. To view Similarity Score, which compares the solution written by your candidate compared to the code that CodeSignal has identified as being very similar, click the Similarity Score link (low, medium, or high) in the candidate's report. You'll be able to see the candidate's solution side-by-side with the similar solution. In the example below, you can see that the candidate has simply copy-and-pasted the code they submitted:

Suspicion Score, Code Quality & AI Insights
CodeSignal’s AI-driven innovation offers a more holistic view of a candidate’s skills. If you have enrolled into the beta for these features, you can view these sections within a candidate's coding report as well.
To view Suspicion Score, scroll down to the Questions section of the Coding Report, you'll see individual Suspicion Scores for each question. These scores offer a more in-depth look at where a candidate's behavior may require additional review.

AI Insights streamline decision-making by summarizing a candidate’s Pre-Screen assessment performance into easy-to-understand key takeaways for both technical and non-technical audiences.
Code Quality provides directional insights on the quality of a candidate’s code, not just the correctness of their solution. Code Quality is based on a number of factors:
- Function naming: should be consistent and clear
- Abstraction levels: should be consistent
- Multiple functions: No monolithic functions > 15 lines
- Other: no code duplication that should have been refactored, high cyclomatic complexity, and high cognitive complexity
Accessing a rejected (non-verified) assessment result
To view rejected assessment results, first navigate to the NOT SHARED tab in the dashboard for the certified assessment in question. Then, filter for results that are "Expired (Not verified)." Note that rejected results will still expire.
You can also view the coding score and coding report for non-verified results. Note that the coding score will appear in red (rather than green), indicating that it was not verified.
Sharing an assessment result
Once you have navigated to an assessment result, you have 2 ways to access and share the link:
a. Click the link icon to the right of the candidate's name.
b. Or, you can click on the candidate's name to view all their results on CodeSignal certified assessments. To share from this screen, click LINK in the top right.
After you click the link icon via one of these methods, you will see a pop-up modal with options to copy either a public link or a restricted link, which requires the viewer to be logged in to CodeSignal to access.
Click the copy icon to the right of the link you wish to use to copy the link URL. Then, click DONE.
