comment What are some good small-scale refactoring tests?
Do you have any suggestions for those easier ways to weed out bad candidates? I hate a lot of the typical data structure and algorithm tests because they don't really apply to our project which is a web app with pretty high-level concerns. One could argue they are still good candidate filters, but I want to test their design abilities as well (it's something we've found to be lacking in a lot of developers and seems harder to test for).

Really? I would argue the exact opposite. Maybe we're not talking about the same level of reuse, but on the small scale I think dividing code into reusable pieces promotes separation of concerns, easier to understand code (e.g., one large method broken out into pieces that can be reused and each describe exactly what they do, etc.), and makes it easily tested. Maybe I described it wrong. I'm not looking for someone who will apply a design pattern to "Hello World", more-so I want someone who can at least recognize a good opportunity for using one when it's beneficial to the solution.
