Many of us want to use data better. But it can be difficult to know where to start.
Data analysis hinges on asking good questions about data. In this hands-on session, participants will explore data about high school graduation rates to practice asking different types of analytical questions. Participants will work with NESSC regional and state data, as well as their own school data, to examine how our understanding of the data shifts as we look across multiple data sources.
Participants will also learn fundamental principles for creating effective data displays, and will have an opportunity to apply these techniques to their own data story. They will leave the session with new insights about how to examine data in context as well as tools to apply in exploring key questions back at school.
This session is designed for teams of 2-5 people.

Participants will:
Compare their school’s graduation data with state and New England figures collected through the NESSC’s Common Data Project;
Explore three types of questions you should ask when analyzing data;
Learn fundamental principles for creating effective data displays; and
Work in guided small groups to create a data story display.
