  • Our group consists of Logan Peterson, Sarah Linebaugh, Nicolas Patino, and Carter Reynolds. The subject of our project is an analysis of School Progress Report data for charter schools in Philadelphia. For this assignment, we will download the raw School Progress Report data file from the School District of Philadelphia’s website. We will load this data into Excel for analysis and then eventually visualize our findings in Tableau. We will particularly be looking at how the “overall score” is calculated for each of these schools in the the School Progress Report (SPR). The SPR is an annual report developed for every school in the school district. However, it is calculated in an interesting way which we will lay out, analyze, and test in this project.

    • Instead of looking at all charter schools, we are now going to look at all high schools, both charter and district. The scenario will instead involve the district’s decisions to change floor and target scores year-over-year, and the impact this has on School Progress Reports when standardized tests change and become more/less difficult year-over-year. This change came about after our group started analysis for this project.

  • Our group consists of Danielle Buerger, Rhea Prabhu, Kalifala Ahamed Konneh, Aviva Muskin and Staci Cambridge Wendt. Our group will be analyzing the increase of smartphone ownership and data usage in emerging countries. We will be entering information from the datasets into Tableau and seeing what the trends of the more and less advanced economies are in regard to using data, the internet and cell phones.

  • Our group project will consist of the analysis of smartphone ownership (Pew Research) worldwide through the manipulation of survey data. We will leverage excel, SPSS, and Tableau for data manpulation and visualization. My group mates are Craig Stetchak, Phillip Aaron, Izzy Sarlo, and Anthony Petrole.

  • Our group will consist of Fei Qing, Yaning Wang, Yixuan Zhou, and Man Shu Wong. We will be analyzing the 2016 presidential campaign fundraising. Our data source will download from the federal election commission, the goal of the assignment is to examine the financial strategy being used during the campaign by using data analysis tools such as Excel and Tableau.

  • Our group is myself, Patrick Granquist, George Raymond and Jillian Foster. We do not have a idea yet but we will after this class period.

    • Our group will be analyzing who has healthcare in the US. We will examine the data and make a heatmap of the country to show where the highest concentration of insured/uninsured Americans live.
