Micro-Credential Description

The Performing Data Analysis micro-credential requires learners to apply both manual and machine-learning approaches to identify, characterize, and evaluate relationships that exist in datasets to explain observed outcomes or to build simple predictive models. Learners will then translate results into actionable, evidence-based business insights. 

The first step in exploratory data analysis (EDA) is pattern identification. To identify patterns within the data, learners utilize descriptive statistical methodology that is relevant and meaningful to the project goals. Learners use graphical analysis to explore relationships and correlations within the dataset.

A variety of methods are used to handle missing data and outliers within the dataset. To categorize the data, learners build unsupervised learning models.

Use your knowledge and experience to immediately achieve your credential by completing an employer-validated assessment.
