Beginner

Introducing Tableau

Length: 30 - 60 Minutes

Description: Tableau is an interactive data visualization software. Data visualization is the process of changing the way we look at data by providing a visual context that helps us make more meaningful insights.

This tech kit provides a fundamental overview of the Tableau interface as well as an introduction to creating basic visualizations.

Intermediate

Tableau Driving Business Value

Length: 30 - 60 Minutes

Description: Armed with an introductory knowledge of Tableau, you are ready to explore the vast opportunities the software provides. Tableau can be used both to create simple data visualizations and to drive complex data analysis. By leveraging a variety of built-in features and the ability to create your very own dashboards, the opportunity to discover unique and intriguing insights that drive business decision-making is quite remarkable. This tech kit explores a number of capabilities including uploading data sets, creating calculated fields, filtering data and creating dashboards.

Advanced

Mastering Data Analysis

Length: 30 - 60 Minutes

Description: There is no doubt that Tableau provides enormous opportunity for meaningful analysis of a wide variety of potential data. In fact, the ultimate goal for the Tableau learning materials is to cement this notion in students’ minds, providing the resources to extract such data-driven “meanings” along the way. The advanced material to follow seeks to address this, allowing the student himself to both find and analyze a data set of his choosing. In this way, truly innovative, challenging, and “exciting” data analysis will inevitably result. This tech kit examines “cleaning” data sets, using functions, integrating Level of Detail (LOD) expressions and using calculations.
