The Data Science With Python Badges are targeted towards university-level faculty and students interested in assessing their knowledge of data science and big data analytics and visualization using Python. There will be a beginner-level assessment and an intermediate-level assessment. Questions are designed to assess knowledge of basic data science and big data principles and practices of a more general nature.
Target date for availability will be early March, 2019.

The Beginner Python For Data Science Badge consists of a relatively simple 10-question quiz made with basic questions about basic Python data science tools, technologies, and practices. The quiz requires no time limit to complete, and allows up to 5 submissions.
Part 1: Knowledge Assessment
This part consists of a 15-question quiz made with more difficult questions, requiring a time limit to complete, and allowing only 2 submissions.
Part 2: Practical Assessment
For this part of the badge, the user will need to perform some reasonably challenging problems in data science including exercise on two different documents, 1) a document provided by us, and 2) a document of the user's own choosing.
