Reportedly, each corporate job posting attracts 250 applications; however, only four to six of those candidates are called in for interviews, and only one eventually receives a job offer. In other words, out of 250 applicants, only the best ones are hired. 

Sifting through 250 candidates to only find that one, rightly-skilled candidate sounds daunting, right? That’s why recruiters must adopt innovative technology to save both hiring costs and time.

However, with the overwhelming number of hiring tools flooding the recruitment industry, wondering how you would find the most suitable tool? By comparing the key features of different tools, such as Codility vs. Leetcode. This blog provides an in-depth insight into both the leading tools to assist you in finding the right one for your firm.

 

 

Hiring managers spending too much time on interviewing irrelevant candidates? Try iMocha's pre-hire assessment platform to filter qualified and best-fit candidates!

 

 

Codility Vs. LeetCode Vs. iMocha

Codility is a talent assessment platform explicitly designed for engineering teams. It allows recruiters to attract, screen, and interview candidates based on real-life engineering and fundamental programming skills via CodeCheck, CodeLive, and CodeEvent. 

In comparison, LeetCode is one of the most well-known online employment platforms that allows users to evaluate programming talents through coding challenges. It supports over 18 programming languages, has over 1,100 unique challenges, and an active community that is always available to assist you with solutions. While most of LeetCode's content is free, LeetCode Premium improves all of its advantages by giving you access to premium challenges and solutions, a built-in debugger, an autocomplete feature, and interview simulations with feedback. 

It's important to know that both LeetCode and Codility have some significant drawbacks. For example, LeetCode does not have intuitive dashboards, Codility does not have advanced proctoring, and reports are not reliable. As an alternative, iMocha, one of the world's leading talent assessment tools, successfully overcomes such consequential shortcomings and helps companies build competitive teams by providing reliable talent data, AI-powered skills evaluation tools, and expert assistance. 

 

Features Comparision

iMocha has the world's most extensive library, with over 2500 skill assessments. These skill assessments evaluate candidates on different job skills application development, coding skills, cyber security, digital skills, cognitive ability, business skills, etc. While Codility and LeetCode are specifically designed to determine a candidate's coding skills, iMocha offers a broader scope in assessing candidates for different departments. However, Codility and LeetCode are restricted to the IT sector only. 

iMocha provides AI-enabled business AI-EnglishPro tests to evaluate candidates' communication skills. The SMEs engaged with iMocha created a unique assessment, AI-EnglishPro, to assist corporations in effectively evaluating Business English Communication. This feature harnesses the capabilities of Natural Language Processing Tools, Artificial Intelligence, Computational Linguistics, and Text Analysis to present a holistic assessment report. In contrast, Codility and LeetCode have no such assessments in their skill library.  

iMocha assesses candidates in 27+ coding languages, Codility in 40+, and LeetCode in 18+ languages only.   

Codility and LeetCode have no custom assessment features in it, whereas iMocha offers highly customizable assessments which can either be created from a mix of pre-made assessments or entirely from scratch. You can also choose your preferred language while creating a test; currently, they support Russian, Japanese, Spanish, German, Chinese, Portuguese, Indian Regional languages, and more.

iMocha provides a better cheating prevention solution 

Remote assessments are often violated by candidates who try to cheat by sharing answers, looking up answers online, taking multiple test attempts, tampering with results, and soliciting outside assistance. In such a scenario, proctoring software is integral in helping recruiting managers monitor each candidate effectively and ensuring assessment integrity. 

Therefore, iMocha's proctoring suite deploys some of the most advanced cheating prevention techniques to facilitate authentic hiring.  

iMocha's Smart Proctoring features: 

  • iMocha provides a virtual examination room that is secured to prevent window violations. It provides detailed proctoring reports to test administrators, which include an accurate count of violations and when they occurred.  
  • During the bulk test, all questions and answers are randomized to minimize cheating by participants. 
  • The advanced plagiarism detection in iMocha allows you to locate instances of copying and pasting.  
  • Through iMocha's Candidate ID Verification tool, they ensure that the person undergoing the assessment is the same as the person who had applied for it.
  • With its video proctoring suite, cheating is automatically highlighted, so recruiters do not have to watch the entire clip.
