Data Science Aptitude Test

Data Science is an interdisciplinary field that incorporates data analysis fields including statistics, machine learning, and predictive analysis. Its purpose is to evaluate analytics and data science techniques. Methods and theories from other sectors, such as mathematics, information science, computer science, and statistics, are also used in data science.  

Data science aptitude test is designed and validated by experienced Subject Matter Experts (SMEs) to assess and hire data science professionals as per industry standards. Check out the list of data science interview questions and answers to ask for Technical Recruiters & Hiring Managers.

Topics Covered

Classification and Regression Algorithms

This test helps recruiters to understand the candidate’s knowledge of dividing the dataset into different classes and ability to find the best fit line, which can predict the output more accurately.

Data Extraction and Mining

Data scientist aptitude test helps recruiters in evaluating the skills of a candidate to analyze large data sets using machine learning, statistical and mathematical techniques and extraction of data from online sources into centralized storage.

Imbalanced Datasets & Sampling Distributions

This test aids the recruiters in analyzing candidate’s understanding of classification data set with skewed class proportion and statistics through repeated sampling.

Optimizing Functions and Information Theory

This test helps recruiters in quantifying a candidate's ability of maximizing or minimizing a real function by choosing input values from an allowed set and computing the value of the function in data science.

Data Wrangling and Correction

This test helps recruiters understand a candidate’s skill of uniting complex data sets for easy analysis and checking whether data is correct or inaccurate.

Numerical Ability-Quantitative Aptitude

Data analytics aptitude test aids the recruiters in understanding candidates' speed of the executing tasks related to handling of numbers.
