Recently, I took up a course and passed it. It's Google's course on Mobile App Analytics. Though I know what exactly it is, I wonder whether the word analytics as a plural word is correct.
If you come up with your point that if this is a product, it can have such liberty. But then, when I earned the certificate, the word analytics is used in the course name that makes me ask this question here. We generally take care of every word we use as a course title, don't we?
My homework is, I searched for almost all the dictionaries we generally refer to. Except The Free Dictionary, no dictionary mentions this plural word Analytics. Also, if analytic is an adjective, what analytics is in Google's Analytics? A noun?
Here is the certificate I got.
