I’m interested in the ML pathway and under its self assessment it is mentioned that “specifications will be uploaded to drive.” Could I please know which drive link it is referring to as I haven’t received one yet?
Additionally, how is the self assessment supposed to be submitted, as in, will we receive a form link after week 1 or will it be provided to us via our mentor chains account?

All information will be provided. For now, get started on the learning resources provided. If you have already finished reviewing the learning resources, you may send me a DM and I will give you a separate self-assessment.

Hi, Ritwik here. I am interested in the UX pathway. Self assessment says “Questions on conducting user research. Brief summary of UX tools and team presentations”.
How do I attempt the self assessment and how will it be conducted?

Hi @ritwik_kar, that’s great that you are interested in UX! Please attend the webinar tomorrow at 9am PDT (Google Meet Link is on the July 2020 Calendar ). You will learn more about the self-assessment here. Don’t worry if you cannot attend, a recording will be available. If you have any more questions, feel free to contact me directly, I am currently a UX Lead.

When will the self assessments be released so we can complete them or the mini projects for UX?

I have done the training material for R and I was wondering how I could get started on the self assessment?
