The assessment for the Data Citizenship unit involved an online computer based assessment and a practical assessment. We have made up an example practical assessment so that you can see what’s involved and be able to practice the sort of skills that will be involved in the real assessment. Hopefully it will help you to see that it’s nothing to worry about!
This is part 2. See part one for the links to the files and the first set of videos.
Manipulating the data:
