Introduction to Data Visualization BAN140 Part 4: Final Group Project Writing a Data Report Professor: David Quispe Deadline for submission: August 7th @ 11:59 PM ●Details Your data report will be submitted through BlackBoard as a Pdf File (recommended, .pdf) or Word document (.docx). You will write a data report outlining the key findings of your data analysis as well as suggestions for how your intended audience should respond to your findings. This milestone will build on the findings in yourNarrated PowerPoint Slide(the previous milestone),exploring them in greater depth. Think of this report as an executive report that your audience is going to read after your presentation so your stakeholders can make decisions based on your analysis and recommendations. ●Deliverables In this milestone, you will write a report applying the best practices discussed in class. All the previous work developed in part 1, 2 , and 3 can be used to write this report. One submission per group is expected. Saved your pdf files as GroupX_Final_Project_Part4.pdf (e.g.,Group12_Final_Project_Part4.pdf) ●Instructions Think of this report as an executive report that your audience is going to read after your presentation so your stakeholders can make decisions based on your analysis and recommendations. This is not a report for the professor of your data visualization class this is a professional report for a CEO or any other stakeholder that will be making decisions based on your analysis and suggestions.
●Given its (relatively) short length, your report does not need to include a table of contents, executive summary or bibliography. You can use headings for different sections to make the organization of your report clear (i.e. write "Recommendations" above the section where you provide your recommendations). But think of this milestone as a (relatively) brief analytical report rather than a long, detailed report with multiple parts. ●Include at least six (and no more than 10) static charts. The charts in your report can include those from previous milestones. If so, make sure you incorporate any feedback you received from the instructor about making those charts better, if any. Your charts should be sprinkled throughout your report, as close as possible to the text they relate to. This makes it easier for the reader to digest than having all the charts at the back, in a "Figures" section. Also, I recommend pulling your charts into a Dashboard before exporting them from Tableau as static charts. This will allow you to size them in the best way possible for your report rather than just using the default layout on a Tableau Sheet (which, for some charts, may look squished in a written report). Also, pay attention to the size of your titles and labels: You may want to make them bigger to make them easier to read. ●At the top of your first page, include a brief description of who the intended audience for your Data report is. ●Reference at least three outside sources (studies, news articles, reports) that put your data into context. For all external sources used, you should briefly summarize what the outside source says, explain how it's relevant to your data, and include a hyperlink to where the source can be found online. ●Your report should include aclear recommendation for your audienceof what steps they should take in response to your analysis. Base this suggestion on who your intended audience is and what they are in a position to do in response to your analysis. For example, a CEO could hire more staff. An advocacy group could create a new awareness campaign.
• Review the requirements for the other milestones in this project carefully to ensure that your third deliverable is aligned with the next deliverables of the project. DeliverableGoal Milestone 11. Find Your Data and Write your Data Plan Milestone 22. Two charts, the main sentence and an"elevator pitch" videoIn this milestone, you will show the results of your initial analysis of your dataset that you selected in the first milestone. Milestone 33. Narrated PowerPoint SlideYou will produce a short PowerPoint slide deck explaining some key findings of your data, answering research questions, and a clear recommendation about what action should be taken as a result of your analysis. You will then narrate those slides to produce a recorded presentation between 10 and 15 minutes long. Milestone 44. Writing Data ReportYou will write a data report outlining the key findings of your data analysis as well as suggestions for how your intended audience should respond to your findings. This milestone will build on the findings in your Narrated PowerPoint Slide (the previous milestone), exploring them in greater depth. Milstone 55. Interactive Data StoryUsing Tableau, you will create a "Data Story" that uses maps and charts — some interactive, some not — to explain the results of your data analysis and anticipates the user's questions about your data.
