## Algorithms and Data Structures Test for Hiring Engineers

The algorithmic knowledge quiz assesses a candidate's understanding of classic algorithmic data structures, a common subject in four-year CS programs. Topics on this quiz contain questions that range from simple definitions and use cases, and progress through the details of more obscure data structures and their concrete implementations.This quiz assesses a candidate’s knowledge of algorithms and data structures. Candidates are asked questions about the behavior and use-cases of common algorithms and about the data structures that support them. They’re also asked to answer questions on computational complexity, like whether an algorithm has O(log n) or O(n) runtime or space requirements.

# What topics does the Algorithms and Data Structures test cover?

• Classic data structures such as hash maps, binary search trees, etc.
• Classic algorithms, and ability apply them to solve problems
• Time and space complexity
• Worst- and average-case complexity of common operations
• Underlying implementations of many classic algorithms

##### Assessments Engineers Actually Want to Take
Engineers don't want to take your outdated coding tests (you know they don't provide true signal anyway). Screen assessments have an 80-90% completion rate, so you don't have to worry about drop off.
📣
##### Never miss the talented engineers in your pipeline again

Triplebyte tests are adaptive and use a nominal model for scoring. This allows for “partial credit” on multiple choice questions, to help identify unconventional thinkers vs. random guessers.

##### Screens that Scale with You— and Your Candidates

Triplebyte Screen scales with you. Add as many team members as you want without the red tape of adding seats. Screen as many candidates as you want without having to ration assessments.

[After running an A/B test with both tools], I quickly found that the HackerRank signal was awful. People could score 20% or 80% and you still had no idea how good they actually are. But the Triplebyte Screen scores actually gave you insight.
If [the candidate] scores a 4 or 5 on Screen, we make an offer 50 to 60% of the time. "
