When building a test, you have the option to randomize task in a task slot, which means candidates will see different questions from their piers when taking your test. For example, if you add 5 tasks into one task slot, candidate #1 will see task #1, candidate #2 will see task #2, and so on. This can be extremely helpful if you have a high volume of candidates or recruit from universities where the chances of plagiarism are higher.
In order to randomize task, you need to confirm the tasks are the same difficulty level and type as to provide an unbiased platform for all candidates. Then click on each task you wish to add into the task slot.
Configure the coding languages allowed when solving the randomized tasks and add the task slot score.
It can be extremely helpful to favorite the task you like to use for interview sessions and tests. Having a favorites list allows you to quickly access your frequently used tasks.
To favorite a task, simply click the "Star" icon next to the task.
To find your favorited tasks, toggle on My Favorites.
