Support for Java21 on our backend coding environment

We are happy to announce that we have added support for Java21 on our general-purpose backend coding environment (CodeLysis).

Clients will be able to select Java21 while creating or editing questions and test takers will be able to attempt coding questions in Java21 wherever available.

Important GoLang Update on CodeLysis

In order to keep pace with evolving technology and ensure optimal performance, we are announcing the discontinuation of support for GO1 on our CodeLysis simulator. As GO1 has reached its End of Life (EOL), we have migrated all existing questions seamlessly to GO16, which was already fully supported on our platform.

We are committed to providing a robust and up-to-date development environment for our users, and we appreciate your understanding as we continue to enhance the capabilities of CodeLysis.

Please note that since GO1 will no longer be supported on CodeLysis, users are encouraged to use GO16 for all future developments of questions as well as assessments to take advantage of the latest features and improvements.

Bifurcate Open-ended feedback by Self & Others

Re-nomination option now available for Seekers!

Feedback Seekers can re-nominate their Feedback Providers after submitting them once!

Until now, Seeker could nominate their providers only once in the survey. Once these nominations were submitted, they had no option to go back to the participant list and update it.

After enabling this new setting, the Seeker can re-nominate their Providers until the survey has ended. They can edit/delete already nominated Providers (those who have not started their survey yet). They can add new Providers also. We have added a new column for ‘Nomination Status’ to show the latest status for each nominated Provider.

In case an Approver is added, the Approver can also approve or alter the re-nominations submitted by a Seeker until survey end date arrives. We also highlight and show the Approver what exact updates have been done by the Seeker on re-nomination. We have added the new column for ‘Nomination Status’ here also.

Below is how this setting can be enabled in Settings:


Below is where the Seeker can see the ‘Re-nomination’ option after submitting the nominations:


Below is how the screen appears to the Approver once re-nominations have been submitted by the Seeker:

Show/Hide feedback post test completion

Some clients have their own integration and flow. Feedback should be given on the client’s platform itself. Sometimes they do not require test-takers to give feedback on the Mercer Mettl platform. To accomplish this, we are adding a setting at the assessment level showing “Don’t ask for feedback post-test completion.” Enabling this setting will remove the feedback widget from the test-taking experience

Setting can be enabled/Disabled  from here
