With just some questions it's probably hard and unreliable. If feasible, I'd suggest a test where you give them a piece of oldish software, describing what goes in and what comes out and ask them to incorporate a new feature.

Primadonnas will be tempted to through away all the old code and write everything from scratch (because their code is best). Others may prove utter incompetents who cannot do any work and, if you are lucky, you might spot some that can treat a piece of code with respect and adapt their way of thinking to blend in with what's already there.
