About the test

The Power BI assessment is meticulously crafted to evaluate an advanced-level candidate’s proficiency with Power BI, a leading data visualization and business intelligence tool. This comprehensive evaluation encompasses various aspects of Power BI ranging from data importation, transformation, and modeling, to creating complex visualizations, using DAX for data analysis, and leveraging the Power BI service for sharing and collaboration. Candidates’ understanding of advanced concepts like DirectQuery, row-level security, and leveraging Power BI’s AI capabilities will be tested. Additionally, their ability to apply these skills to solve real-world business intelligence challenges will be assessed. This exam is designed to filter out the truly experienced Power BI professionals who can leverage the tool’s full potential to drive data-driven decision-making processes. Through a variety of question types, including multiple-choice questions with single or multiple correct answers, this test targets deep knowledge and application skills in Power BI. About 20% of the questions are structured to have two correct answers to closely simulate problem-solving in real-world scenarios, without explicitly instructing the candidates, thus closely imitating the ambiguity and complexity of actual business situations.
