I wonder if the better approach (for a company like this one) would be to hire 4-5 good programmers, and 4-5 bad programmers, and let candidates write the tests; assign the candidates that most successfully identify the on-staff good coders from the bad ones the highest score?

It sounds about as silly as this scoring does in the first place anyway...
