The Digital Analyst Self-Assessment is the ultimate professional development resource for digital analysts. Intuitive and easy-to-use, the self-assessment asks you to rate yourself against the key defined competencies of successful digital analysts. Once completed, you can see how you measure up in the job market in your current role and for job roles to which you aspire.

The assessment’s gap analysis section allows you to compare your results against your peers across industry, location, chapter, education level, etc. See more comparisons by updating your DAA Member Profile. The tool aggregates all user responses and profile data into an anonymous data pool. Then, based on your profile and assessment results, the tool compares you with a group of other digital analysts in the same job role.  No individual results are shared, as they are strictly confidential.

Your results will also indicate which competencies you'll want to focus on and the recommended professional development resources available to address your specific needs. Your assessment results will provide you with a clear definition of how to get from where you are to where you want to be. You can use your assessment results to develop a personalized professional development plan using the education resources recommended to you.
The Digital Analyst Self-Assessment is based on the Digital Analyst Competency Framework developed by digital analysts across a broad range of experience and skill levels. The Self-Assessment is one of several professional development resources in development by the DAA based on the Competency Framework.

The tool works in five easy steps:

Identify your current job role

Assess your skills within that role

Review your assessment results and recommended learning resources

Create your personalized professional development plan

Explore other careers in digital analytics

"For any analyst who wants to take their career to the next-level, the DAA self-assessment tool is the perfect resource.

Here's how the Self-Assessment can advance your career:

  • Document your strengths to management when discussing your performance, career goals, and development needs
