HackerRank's Tests and Interviews aim at assessing candidates' knowledge in programming and problem-solving techniques. Candidates are expected to provide their own original answers to questions presented in these assessments. Your test setters may use practices such as proctoring and full-screen mode Tests to monitor malpractices by candidates.
In particular, for Coding assessments, HackerRank uses a powerful tool to detect plagiarism in the candidates' submitted code. The test report highlights any plagiarized portions in the submitted code and helps evaluators verify the integrity of the answers provided in the test.
The plagiarism detector uses specialized methods to identify and report:
- Any overlaps in code submitted by different candidates.
- Replicated code from sources on the internet.
- A code that is reproduced by changing the variable names, formats, etc.
Therefore, we recommend you submit your original solutions in HackerRank's assessments.
