Quite naturally, Syntax Checking tests are constituents of information technology candidate assessments. Alongside other important tests, syntax checking aptitude measures a critical skill in a computer-driven world: the ability to understand basic functions of any computer language, which is key for a multitude of job positions.


Test characteristics

In Syntax Checking tests, candidates are provided with a mock computer language which consists of certain rules that are expressed through symbols, letters and numbers (much like any computer language). Candidates are then asked to inspect written lines of this language and make judgements whether the code makes sense or is invalid according to the language's rules. In a way, it's a bit like fixing grammar and typos in common writing, only in this case, rules are made up and require attention and fast response times.
