INF4000 coursework assessment
The assessment for module INF4000 Data Visualization consists of a written report to assess your ability to visualise data using R/Rstudio and ggplot2. You will download a dataset from the World Bank data catalog and you build a set of visualizations to explore and analyse the data based on a topic of your interest. You should apply the skills you have obtained in the practical sessions of the module. You are expected to follow one of the theoretical frameworks discussed in the lecture and describe the steps you took during the visualization process. The report needs to be 3,000 words long. The submission deadline for the assessment is 13th January at 10:00am via the Turnitin link found in the Blackboard page of module INF4000 Data visualization. The assessment is worth 100% of the overall mark for the module. A pass mark of 50 is required to pass the module as a whole. You will also need to provide the R code you used to create the visualizations in the report, as well as any cleaning or transformation of the original dataset. You will upload this R file to a Google Drive folder linked in the coursework assessment section in Blackboard. Make sure the R file is named using you student registration number.
1. The World Bank data catalog The World Bank provides a vast amount of information on their Data Catalog https://datacatalog.worldbank.org/ . The World Bank is an international institution that provides financing to poorer countries to support their development. Their goal is the reduction of poverty.
You should browse the data catalog for a dataset or set of datasets that look at a topic that interests you. The data catalog contains time series (where a set of measurements and indicators have been taken over a period of time), microdata (focused on the results of surveys and censuses), and geospatial data (data with explicit geographic positioning information). I recommend you look for datasets that are available as CSV or similar file types (this can be found as access option Download), however you can choose whichever dataset you want.
2. Structure of the report You need to follow the structure outlined below. Because of the word count limit, you should be careful not to let any section be too long and the others too short. You will need to balance each section and make sure the final report is clear, informative and concise. Please note that although the written language is not directly assessed, reports that are not understandable will likely score low marks. Please keep in mind that some of the sections will not count towards the word count. Table 1: Required content of the structured report.
Title page This should provide the title of the work and the word count. This is not
included in the word count.
Structured abstract This should provide a summary of your report in a structured manner (introduction, aims, methods, results, and conclusion). It should fit into one page. This is not included in the word count.
Table of contents This should include section titles and page numbers. This is not included in
the word count.
Introduction and aims This section should briefly describe your selected problem or topic addressed in the report and that forms the focus for your visualizations. You will need to provide a summary of the topic with support from the literature. You should explain why you chose the topic and why you think it is important (again supported by literature sources).
Methodology The first part of this section should contain a description of the dataset that was used. The next part of this section should clearly state which theoretical framework you are using and why you chose that framework. Then, you should explain what methods, plots and techniques you have used for each step of the framework. You will need to justify the choices you made, especially with regards to the final visualizations used. Please include literature sources to support your choices where appropriate. Ideally, your methodology should have enough detail that other people would be able to replicate the work.
Results and discussion In this section, you should present the results of your visualizations and explain how do they address the topic you are focusing on. You should make sure your visualizations are clear and informative. You will not be assessed on how pretty the visualizations are. Marks will be deducted if the visualization is not accessible or if they are misleading. You should focus on effectively communicating the results of the analysis to the reader by highlighting the trends or patterns you have observed.
Conclusion In this section, you should summarise the main findings and the lessons learned. You should state the main message the reader should come away with from your analysis. You should also highlight any weakness or things you would have done differently if you would have had more time.
Reference list You should add here the full details of all literature sources you have used in the report. You need to use the APA reference style. This is not included in the word count.
3. Information School Coursework Submission Requirements It is the student’s responsibility to ensure no aspect of their work is plagiarised or the result of other unfair means. The University’s and Information School’s Advice on unfair means can be found in your Student Handbook, available via http://www.sheffield.ac.uk/is/current.
Your assignment has a word count limit. A deduction of 3 marks will be applied for coursework that is 5% or more above or below the word count as specified above or that does not state the word count.
It is your responsibility to ensure your coursework is correctly submitted before the deadline. It is highly recommended that you submit well before the deadline. Coursework submitted after 10am on the stated submission date will result in a deduction of 5% of the mark awarded for each working day after the submission date/time up to a maximum of 5 working days, where ‘working day’ includes Monday to Friday (excluding public holidays) and runs from 10am to 10am. Coursework submitted after the maximum period will receive zero marks. Work submitted electronically, including through Turnitin, should be reviewed to ensure it appears as you intended.
Before the submission deadline, you can submit coursework to Turnitin numerous times. Each submission will overwrite the previous submission. Only your most recent submission will be assessed. However, after the submission deadline, the coursework can only be submitted once.
During your first Semester at the School, when submitting a piece of work through Turnitin, you will only be able to view a ‘similarity report’ when submitting your Test Essay. You can then edit and resubmit your Test Essay. For other coursework you will not be able to view a Turnitin ‘similarity report’. Details about the submission of work via Turnitin can be found at: http://youtu.be/C_wO9vHHheo
If you encounter any problems during the electronic submission of your coursework, you should immediately contact the module coordinator and one of the Information School Exams Secretaries (Julie Wharton, J.Wharton@sheffield.ac.uk, 0114 2222839 or Corrie Houton, firstname.lastname@example.org, 0114 2222640). This does not negate your responsibilities to submit your coursework on time and correctly.
