The Python for Developers Literacy (Beginner Level) benchmark evaluates your ability to install Python and work with variables, built-in functions, and simple Python data types. You will be assessed on your skills in creating and using lists and tuples, working with sets and dictionaries, correctly copying variables of complex data types, and distinguishing the similarities and differences across lists, sets, tuples, and dictionaries. A learner who scores high on this benchmark demonstrates that they have the skills to perform operations with simple and complex data types in Python.
