- Knowledge-based: Here, all theoretical knowledge of programming, technologies and methodologies are tested. This is done via MCQs
- Skill-based: A fair and accurate evaluation of employees’ competency in carrying out or performing a job function is tested. This is done with exercises and assignments
- Application-based: This kind of assessment evaluates the ability of the employees’ to effectively apply their gained knowledge and skills in developing technological solutions that are viable. This is done through project work and case studies
