According to Kirk (2016), most of your time will be spent working with your data. The four following group actions were mentioned by Kirk (2016):
- Data acquisition: Gathering the raw material
- Data examination: Identifying physical properties and meaning
- Data transformation: Enhancing your data through modification and consolidation
- Data exploration: Using exploratory analysis and research techniques to learn
Select 1 data action and elaborate on the actions preformed in that action group.
Remember your initial post on the main topic should be posted by Wednesday 11:59 PM (EST). Your 2 following posts should be commenting on your classmatesâ€™ post on different days by Sunday 11:59 PM (EST). You should end the week with 3 total discussion posts.
A quality post is more than stating, â€œI agree with you.â€ Maybe you should state why you agree with your classmateâ€™s post. Additionally, post some examples or find a related topic on the internet or Universityâ€™s library and comment on it in the discussion post.
