As an introduction to a talk I recently gave I threw in some slides to form a data viz quiz. They were approximately as follows.
1. Basic Types : name the type of data presentation
3. Historical Personalities - Who created this?
While this was just intended as a warm up before the talk, I believe that anyone working in a data driven organization, or with the title 'data scientist' should be able to nail these questions on the back of their passion and curiosity around data.
