Clipper Assessment


Clipper Assessment

Skills Assessment

This test is designed to gauge a person's knowledge of the CA-Clipper (hereafter referred to as Clipper) development system. The Clipper language consists of a structured programming language and a collection of standard commands, functions, and objects that allow one to create application programs and systems.

The test covers various commands, functions, data types, and other information required to possess a thorough understanding of the Clipper environment and is appropriate to administer to anyone who needs to demonstrate a thorough understanding of Clipper.

Please see our entire library of technical tests for additional assessments that may fit your testing needs.
