This article describes the timeline and possible paths for what happens after a CodeSignal company user invites a candidate (or candidates) to take a CodeSignal certified assessment, such as the General Coding Assessment (GCA).
Step 1: Send an assessment invitation to candidate.
Learn more about sending invitations in this article:
Step 2: Candidate takes the assessment OR chooses to share an existing score for the certified assessment within 14 days of receiving the invitation.
If the candidate does NOT take the assessment or share an existing result within 14 days, the invitation will appear under the NOT SHARED tab in the dashboard for the certified assessment in question.
Step 3: After the candidate completes the assessment, CodeSignal reviews the test session to ensure the candidate provided the necessary identification and followed the rules for the proctored session. CodeSignal verifies the result within 1-3 business days.

Step 4: After CodeSignal reviews a result, there are 2 possible paths:
A. The result is verified
B. The result is not verified
A. If a result has been verified, it will appear under the CERTIFIED tab.
B. If a result is not verified, it will appear in the PENDING tab. You will see a status of Not Verified to the right of the candidate's coding score.
Hover over the Not Verified status to see the reason the result was not verified.
Note: A non-verified result will eventually expire and move the the NOT SHARED tab.

Common reasons a result may not be verified include:
- Candidate was not alone in the room during the assessment
- Candidate got up from their seat during the assessment and exited the camera's view
- Candidate used other devices during the assessment
- Candidate used an external IDE
- Candidate searched online for help (other than syntax-related searches)
