Subjective evaluation

HackerEarth has introduced a new evaluation type for subjective questions called Keyword evaluation. In this method, you can add keywords along with their respective scores and if the candidate’s answer contains the exact keyword, the candidate is allocated the score assigned to that keyword.

Global benchmarking

HackerEarth has introduced Global benchmarking that provides insights into a candidate's position within the broader HackerEarth developer community for their assessed skill. It presents the candidate's percentile compared to all other candidates who have taken the assessments. If you're interested in incorporating global benchmarking into your assessments, please reach out to us.
