About the Data science test

Marc Andreessen’s famous declaration that “software is eating the world” has in more recent years been morphing into “data is eating the world” and with good reason. Data tracks user information and behavior and holds the clues to technological iteration and innovation. While it’s often said that the company with most data wins, it is in fact the company with the best-managed data that gleans the most valuable insights and comes out on top. And for that, you need a data scientist.

This test evaluates candidates’ knowledge on the fundamentals of data science and programming, and their skills in and theoretical understanding of statistics, machine learning, and neural networks and deep learning.

Candidates who do well on the test have a good grasp of fundamental and more advanced topics in data science. They can handle data well and work with large datasets to analyze scenarios and come to conclusions.

FAQs

What is the difference between an assessment and a test?
An assessment is the total package of tests and custom questions that you put together to evaluate your candidates. Each individual test within an assessment is designed to test something specific, such as a job skill or language. An assessment can consist of up to 5 tests and 20 custom questions. You can have candidates respond to your custom questions in several ways, such as with a personalized video.
Can I add my own questions to an assessment?
Yes! Custom questions are great for testing candidates in your own unique way. We support the following question types: video, multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Besides adding your own custom questions, you can also create your own tests.
How do video questions work?
A video question is a specific type of custom question you can add to your assessment. Video questions let you create a question and have your candidates use their webcam to record a video response. This is an excellent way to see how a candidate would conduct themselves in a live interview, and is especially useful for sales and hospitality roles. Some good examples of things to ask for video questions would be "Why do you want to work for our company?" or "Try to sell me an item you have on your desk right now." You can learn more about video questions here.
Can you explain how the other custom question types work?
Besides video questions, you can also add the following types of custom questions: multiple-choice, coding, file upload, and essay. Multiple-choice lets your candidates choose from a list of answers that you provide, coding lets you create a coding problem for them to solve, file upload allows your candidates to upload a file that you request (such as a resume or portfolio), and essay allows an open-ended text response to your question. You can learn more about different custom question types here.
Can I customize an assessment with my company logo and color theme?
Yes! You can add your own logo and company color theme to your assessments. This is a great way to leave a positive and lasting brand impression on your candidates.
