Frequently asked questions
Karat Qualify is an on-demand, 15-question multiple choice exercise that leverages adaptive technology and leading assessment theory to evaluate knowledge of a particular technology, language, or area of “real world” engineering.
Karat Qualify helps businesses manage high application volume and quickly identify promising talent by providing a fair, consistent, and efficient solution for top-of-funnel assessments.
The current state of applicant screening is flawed. Resume screens perpetuate pedigree bias by automatically filtering out those who don’t have the “right” credentials. Meanwhile code tests produce an unreliable signal, have a negative reputation amongst developers, and face significant challenges with the rise of genAI. Karat Qualify offers a much needed alternative— accurately and succinctly evaluating real-world engineering skills via a highly approachable format that keeps applicants engaged.
