How good is your C?

I am looking for volunteers with solid C experience to help verify the reliability of a new on-line C test.

The test consists of 20 multiple-choice questions which can be answered in 30 minutes.

To participate in the trial send me your email and you will get your test invitation by email.

Many thanks.

The question corpus is not public. However, you can see the question samples on the test website.

Can you tell us what the site address is? (Use your signature for this as you don't have a high enough post count to post URLs)
This is so we can look around and see what it's all about. For example if the question corpus is not public - why exactly? Are you looking for unpaid volunteers (aka mugs, in this context) to verify the workings of a site you intend to profit from?

Thank you for the sig tip, xpi0t0s. You can do the trial test there.

The site is commercial, developed by myself. The tests, including the C test, have been put together by a group of talented individuals and we now need beta testers to validate the C test before it is used in anger.

If you would like to see how good is your C, contact me with your email and I will get you the set of credentials to do the test.

I hope this helps.

Why should I beta test your commercial product for free?
Isn't that something you would normally expect to pay for?

Curiosity to see how good is your C using a new metric? Fun? Try a test which you could encounter in a job interview?

>Isn't that something you would normally expect to pay for?

Standard software industry practice for external beta testers is that they do it either for free or they get "paid" in kind (e.g. a free product licence), but only if they provide meaningful feedback.

Anyhow, it is your choice whether to take part.

What payment in kind are you offering?
