Topic: Review & Reporting Data
Learning Module Objectives:
After completing the activities in this section, you should be able to:
Teach One Assignment
There is no teach one assignment for this week.
No individual assignment should be completed in teams. Submit the URL for your work in Blackboard. Describe your work predictive model for diabetes using narrated slides posted to a public domain such as You Tube. If you do not wish to post the work to a public domain, discuss the issue with your instructor so an alternative could be provided. The alternative will still require you to go through the steps of posting but not make the document public.
Question Related to Review of the Course: In this exercise, students ask and answer questions about topics in the course from and for each other. Use the discussion group to ask at least 1 question. You can select any topic in the course that still remains confusing. Do not ask administrative questions such as “When is the exam?” or "Where is the office of the instructor?". Ask only about what remains confusing. In asking a question, specify the topic and provide as much detail so that other students can answer the question. Take time to write a good question. Start the question with a reference to the topic, such as:
"In the topic ‘Basic SQL Command’, in question 3, I get a different answer than other students. Here is my code, could you help me understand what I am doing wrong? Provide snippet of your code. Provide only the relevant portion …."
After you have asked your question(s), go back and provide answers to one or more questions asked by others. A question can have multiple answers, so you can answer a question that has already been addressed by someone else. Answer questions that remain unanswered, have in your view an incomplete or incorrect answer, or the answer provided is not as efficient as your solution. In providing the answer, give as much detail as possible. If you are suggesting a new coding approach, provide the code. If you wish you can provide a URL to a brief video. The instructor will review the answers and 4 students who have answered more correct and more complete answers will receive 10 point bonus in their grade for teach one assignments.
Question Related to Reporting Data: Suppose you have a presentation planned. Suppose you have circulated your report to the people expected to be at the presentation. You have not yet made the presentation. Should you also call up people expected to be at your presentation and ask for their comments before you make your presentation? It may take a great deal of time to call various decision makers and they may not have read your report (presumably you can provide them with a synopsis on the phone), is it really necessary to call and ask for their feedback?
Ongoing Project Question: This week you finish the ongoing individual project with a final report. Your presentation should have the following separate slides and each slide should not have an accompanying recording that exceeds 2 sentences:
Please do not use any of the titles given in the list above in your slides. In general, slides do not need titles if the graphics or words in the slide are self explanatory. Each slide should have a minimal set of words. Stay with font size of 32 or more. Do not use color indiscriminately. If you use images from the web, indicate the source and make sure that it is not copyright protected.
There are no team assignments this week.
