Set someone the interviewee a programming task. This is pretty standard for developer jobs, and is absolutely fantastic for people without work experience (as it gives them another way to probe their skill).

I mean, I did a bunch of take-home tests. But those were focused on doing an analysis on some dataset, focused on answering a question.

Should data scientists be expected to do more than that? Or are you expecting a certain level of code quality from them? Within a 48 hour time window?
