DataCamp Signal is an adaptive assessment tool that accurately measures your data science skill level in Python and R. Each assessment takes about 10 minutes to complete. After completing an assessment, you will receive an assessment score and percentile ranking, your skill level, an overview of your strengths and skill gaps, and personalized course recommendations for areas of improvement.

Everyone is allowed one free assessment attempt. Once you’ve completed your free attempt, you will need to become a DataCamp subscriber to either retake the same assessment or attempt another assessment.
If you are a DataCamp subscriber, you can take any assessment as many times as you’d like. For the best understanding of how your skills are progressing over time, we recommend allowing at least two weeks between attempts of each assessment.
Yes, your assessment results are private to you. We will not share your results without your permission.
We do not currently offer the option to share your results via email or social media.
Currently, we only show the results from your most recent assessment attempt.
Let us know! When you finish an assessment, we’ll ask you if you agree with your score. If you select “no,” you’ll be asked for more information. We read every piece of feedback, so please share as much detail as possible. This will help us improve the product in the future.
Yes, you can leave an assessment after starting it. However, we recommend completing an assessment in a single sitting for the most reliable results. If you do have to leave and come back, you’ll start the assessment where you left off.
Currently, we don’t issue certificates for assessment completions.
Information on Course and Track certificates can be found here.
