A lot of our clients will require software engineering candidates to complete coding test (in the language of their choice) before the tech phone screen, by an engineer or the hiring manager. If they fail the test, the recruiter declines the candidate. If they pass, the test results or actual code produced is passed to the tech phone screener, who then reviews the code with the candidate over the phone and, sometimes, via a screen share. The tech phone screener will often use the code to further test their coding skills; they'll ask them to explain their code or introduce new constraints, and ask them to adapt their code to new performance, scalability goals.
Skype, Google Hangouts, join.me and other screen sharing tools are often used to help facilitate better coding/design oriented screens.
