What to expect when you take the Data Analytics Assessment (DAA)
The Data Analytics Assessment consists of 1 coding task and 14 quiz questions of varying difficulty that assess core data analysis skills: analytical thinking, manipulating data with purpose, and communicating business insights effectively. You will have 70 minutes to complete the test, and you may split your time as you wish during the assessment.
All tasks will be accessible from when the timer begins until the end of the 70 minute period. The coding task asks you to solve a problem by coding in the test itself (outside IDEs are not permitted).
In this assessment, you will be required to download and work with data in CSV format. You may use any tools you're comfortable with (i.e., Microsoft Excel, Google Sheets, R, Python, etc.). Please ensure you are able to download data files from our platform, and have access to tools to work with the data before starting the assessment.
Once you complete the assessment, your score will be reviewed and certified if no unusual activity took place during your session. This score is part of a larger result, your Coding Report, which displays a breakdown of your performance on the assessment
