What is XP and why do I need it?

What is XP?

XP is a way of measuring your engagement within DataCamp. It calculates automatically based on courses, exercises, or other content that you complete.


Note: To better measure your progress, hints and requested solutions will reduce or remove your earned XP.

Do I need XP to use DataCamp?

You cannot disable XP in DataCamp, though you can complete many exercises by asking for the solution, which prevents you from earning XP. For your own skill development, we recommend asking for the solution as a last resort.
