Just a quick comment on this thread. In California, at least, if you give
any testing to one applicant, you have to give it to ALL applicants, or you
open yourself up to lawsuits (this IS California...). This hit me when I'd
started at CNET as a contractor (since converted to full-time). After three
months contracting, HR called me in to do a writing test. It was a short,
basic, "Write a few procedures" test. They've since discontinued the testing
across the board.

In my experience, you can learn more about a person's skill by direct
questioning and walking the candidate through scenarios.
