Linux Assessment Test

Linux is a free and open-source operating system built with a Linux kernel's help. The person who knows Linux OS needs to know fundamental Linux concepts like copying and moving files, creating symbolic and hard links, and using Linux standard text-processing commands along with pipelines and redirection. A Linux professional is a person who is either a website developer or server system administrator.

To operate a fully managed server, one must know the fundamental knowledge of Linux.

The Linux assessment test helps tech recruiters and hiring managers to assess candidates' Linux proficiency before hiring. A basic Linux knowledge test is created and validated by global subject matter experts (SMEs) to evaluate and hire Linux professionals as per industry standards.

Our Linux knowledge test will evaluate the candidate's practical knowledge and will identify whether the candidate is ready to be employed. For this reason, an emphasis is laid upon evaluating the knowledge of applied skills gained through real work experience rather than theoretical knowledge.

Linux skills test helps to screen the candidates who possess below traits:

1. Strong knowledge of Linux commands, shell scripting, and Linux files

2. Ability to work on system performance tuning 

3. Familiarity with Linux system-level programming and operating system internals 

4. Excellent experience in Linux multi-process and multi-threaded user space and/or kernel programming

5. Ability to work on Linux operating systems, VMware, and troubleshooting

Our Linux knowledge test ensures that the new hires will be suitable for the position of a Linux professional having the fundamental knowledge of Linux basics, the Linux operating system, and Linux commands. This will be done through our screening tests which are automated and will provide you with detailed analytical reports of each appeared candidate.

Our Linux skills assessment test score reports highlight the strengths and weaknesses of candidates for each section, making it easier to make data-driven hiring decisions.
