Is there a specific language I should prepare for with the assessment, or is the assessment just to ensure you have an understanding of how programing languages work? I may be jumping over to 170D for the pilot Basic course in 2021 and the assessment for TDQC is a requirement to be considered for the opportunity.

Python3 and C. Those are your bread and butter. Try to focus your learning on data structures, best practices, and clean functional coding. You'll be worse off if you go in with a year of "hack it till it works" experience than if you were completely green. Learn how to use a basic editor like vim instead of a coding environment, you likely won't be allowed to use them. You can use a modified vim env with whatever packages you want, though. Oh, and learn git inside and out. You'll save a lot of headache.
