Announcing the Launch of Data Literacy Objective Assessments
Assessments are a critical part of any data literacy training program, which is why we’re thrilled to announce the launch of our two new Objective Data Literacy Assessments – the Data Citizen and the Visual Interpreter Assessment. Objective assessments are used to evaluate one’s knowledge and skills in a particular subject. That means the questions have right and wrong answers. Ready to test your foundational data literacy skills? Now you can with our two new objective assessments!
Passing the Data Citizen Assessment proves that you’ve mastered the foundational aspects of data literacy: what is data, how is it used by teams, what are some different ways to display your data? We cover these topics in our Data Literacy Fundamentals on-demand course: Understanding the Power & Value of Data.
Passing the Visual Interpreter Assessment proves that you can make sense of the most common chart and graph types, which we cover in our Data Literacy Level 1 on-demand course: Learning to See Data.
The Data Explorer Assessment & Badge are coming soon in Spring of 2022 along with our Data Literacy Level 2 on-demand course: Working Effectively with Data.
If you feel ready to test your knowledge, you can take our objective assessments on their own or you can take the corresponding on-demand course(s), which will also grant you the opportunity to earn the respective badge(s). Take the assessment worry-free even without the course. If you do not pass, we’ll provide you with a $25 promo code to use on our courses. You’ll be able to brush up your data literacy knowledge and have another shot at earning your badge(s).
These two new objective assessments complement our existing Subjective Assessments – the Data Literacy Score Team-Based Assessment and the 17 Key Traits of Data Literacy On-Demand Course & Self-Assessment. Whereas subjective assessments reveal how an individual feels about their own abilities or their team’s collective data literacy, Objective Assessments determine how much a person knows about data. Since they’re objective, with right and wrong answers, consider taking the on-demand courses first to boost your odds of earning your badges.
