Assignment 2: Analyze a Data Set Using Tableau due Oct 2

Here is the assignment as a Word document to make it easy to fill in and submit (along with your Tableau file).

And here is the data file you will need to complete the assignment [In-Class Exercise 2.1 – 2015 Car Fuel Econ [Start].xlsx].

When your assignment is complete, you’re going to email both the Word doc (in .docx or .pdf format) AND the Tableau file to me at MIS0855.duh2wvntz80ovmwv@u.box.com from your Temple email account. If your upload is successful, you’ll receive a confirmation receipt via email from the Temple OwlBox system. SAVE THIS RECEIPT! It is your proof that your submission was submitted, the name of the document, and the time/date of submission.

If you don’t receive a confirmation email, it likely means your submission was not successful. Try again, and contact me if you’re having recurrent issues.

Your assignment must be submitted before class on October 2

In your opinion, what was the most important takeaway from Serdar Celebi’s talk on Friday? You can investigate a specific business problem of interest to you using the data Mr. Celebi showed. For instance, you can ask the question: how did the passenger dragging incident in April affect United Airlines’ sales? and then tell us how it can be analyzed etc. If you did not attend class you cannot answer this question unless you watch the class capture.
