This exam focuses on the candidate's ability to understand the logic of a numbers' series and calculate the next number. The ability to identify the logic reflected from code, whether written by others or written by ourselves, is essential. We believe that having a basic ability for identifying the logic behind a series of numbers is a good indication for having the ability to understand code in general.
When creating a variable in our computer program we actually allocate a memory area and assign it with a name. Using that name we can assign a variable (memory area) with a value. Using that name we can get the value of a variable (memory area) and use it. This exam checks the ability to understand that. In most programming languages we can assign a value into a variable by using the '=' operator.
The following code creates a new variable and assigns it with the value 12. The name of the new variable is 'a'.
a = 12
The following code creates a new variable and assigns it with the value 3. The name of that new variable is 'num1'. In addition, it creates a new variable that its name is 'num2' and assigns it with the value of 'num1' multiplied by 10.
num1 = 3
num2 = 10 x num1
This exam focuses on checking your understanding of simple conditional statements. We expect candidates for programming courses to be capable of understanding simple conditional statements in English. This exam includes 8 questions displayed in a randomized order. This exam lasts 20 minutes. You have 2.5 minutes to answer each and every question. In the end, you will get to see the correct answers and their explanations. If a given explanation is not sufficient please let us know and we will make an effort to improve it.
This exam includes questions that check the candidate's ability to understand loops in computer programming. Having the ability to understand the questions in this exam and answering them correctly is a good indication for the candidate's ability to understand the loops topic when learning computer programming.
This course includes six exams that we chose to develop specifically for those that consider learning programming. Each one of these five exams checks another aspect of the candidate's capabilities.
The statistics show that most of those that learn computer programming eventually don't work in this domain. On the other hand, the demand for programmers (especially talented ones!) remains very high. The main reason for this sad outcome is the relatively low level of most students in most programming courses, which eventually damages the course itself. It usually happens as a result of the willingness of most colleges to accept candidates that don't fit.
Taking the six exams this course includes can serve an indication only. Whether the outcome of taking these exams is positive or not please take it as an indication only.
Taking and passing all exams will be a good indication of your compatibility with computer programming. In case you don't pass all exams please note that these exams can serve as an indication only. One of the main factors for success in computer programming is your motivation. Assessing the motivation each candidate has is very difficult. Therefore, please use the exams this course includes as one (out of many) indications only.
