$uggestion: Some sort of Comprehensive Assessment to test areas needed for review in specific programming languages.
If this isn't possible, does anyone know any resources where we could test our knowledge of a programming language in some sort of quiz/code prompt format for immediate feedback? I know W3Schools have quizzes for each language but I found that they do not cover a lot of information, only the very basics. I would like some sort of assessment that would be able to determine if a student is ready to start applying for jobs or highlight areas for review.
Thanks! Var Grasshopper

I love this idea. But I am going to take this a different direction.
" I would like some sort of assessment that would be able to determine if a student is ready to start applying for jobs or highlight areas for review."
I believe a quiz cannot test this idea. Someone is ready for work as soon as they believe they are. When I built my first website for a company I believed I was ready and made an okay site. Looking back I don't believe I was ready and now I am working on redoing it BUT without that push I would not have learned a lot. There is no final exam for programming because the whole job can change in a minute. The only way to make it is keep learning and keep working.
But like I said I love this idea. My suggestion would be make a site donated to this yourself. Build a site with these quizzes and integrate it with treehouse so it recommends what content to watch. This would be amazing on a portfolio and would help students a ton. You would get a lot of great practice.
I hope this becomes something great! --Ricky
