This simulator is used to evaluate the front-end development skills of test-takers and helps assess their capability to implement web designs and solve problems using front-end technologies. This article aims to give the test taker a look and feel of the simulator and resolve any queries they might have with respect to the user interface.
This section gives a guided tour to the test taker on how to use the platform.
It starts automatically as soon as the front-end question appears, and test-takers can revisit it anytime by clicking on the How to attempt button on the left side of the page, above the problem statement.
The problem statement contains specific instructions on the desired output and on how to proceed further.
In the programming section of the simulator, test takers are provided with a designated area where they can write, edit and test their solution to the problem statement. There may be some pre-existing code as well to help them get started.
Meanwhile, test-takers can also click on the fullscreen button to shift the text editor to the left side of the screen and the result tab to the right side of the screen. This view is highly recommended as it provides the test-taker with ease in writing code.
There are various features around the editor that the test-taker can access such as Editor Modes, Themes, Word Wrap, etc.
Test-takers can leverage these options and create an environment that lets them code more efficiently.
Whatever syntactically and logically correct code the test-taker writes will be reflected immediately in the result tab. The test-taker also has the option to refresh the result tab manually by clicking on the refresh button and can enable/disable the auto-refresh by clicking on the settings button above the result tab.
Once the test-taker is done writing all the lines of code that give an output that is synonymous with the instructions given in the problem statement, they can move to another question or end the test by clicking on the Finish Test button.
The console area is situated next to the result tab. The test-taker can view all the console messages and errors by clicking on the console tab.
