Students earning this badge have attended the Data Science for All seminar on Telling Your Data Story Using Tableau and successfully completed the post-seminar assignment/quiz. This badge attests to the skills students have learned through the seminar and demonstrated through the post-seminar assignment using Tableau Desktop.

The course was initially developed and presented as part of the Data Science for All seminar series at San Jose State University by Dr. Scott Jensen in the Fall 2019 semester.

For a description of the seminar content, see the seminar page. In a nutshell, the skills learned (and covered by this digital badge) include:

  • Importing data and adjusting data types, dimensions, and measures
  • Creating charts, including line, area, bar, 100% stacked bar, box plots, and maps
  • Filtering data, using the Marks Card, setting analysis options, and creating animations
  • Creating parameters, sets, calculated fields, and level of detail (LOD) calculations
