As a student of Saint Leo, it is our responsibility to uphold and utilize our core values. The core vale of “Excellence” states as follows, “All of us, individually and collectively, work hard to ensure that our students develop the character, learn the skills, and assimilate the knowledge essential to become morally responsible leaders” (Florida Catholic University). Using and creating opinions on data leaves one vulnerable to data fraud and other unethical qualms. In order to uphold the integrity and core value of “Excellence” we must be sure to provide accurate and honest representations of data that are provided.

When looking at the data from the following chart, one can appreciate how many different analyses can be made.

Data Set Nominal, Ordinal, Interval Discrete, Continuous Audience

Teacher Gender

Male- 6

Female- 4 Nominal Discrete Potential employees and Hiring Managers

Education Level

2 years or less- 1

2-4 years- 7

4 or more years- 2 Ordinal Discrete Human Resources Department, potential employees, and parents.

Student scores on last test

100-1

95-1

90-3

80-6

70-3

60-1

Interval Continuous Students, Parents, teachers

While the chart above provides us with a plethora of information, we can take it a step further by making it easier to distinguish factors such as percentages as well as totals. Starting with a frequency chart, one can appreciate the simplicity behind it.

Teacher Gender (Nominal, Ordinal ) Frequency

Male 6

Female 4

This chart simple allows us to be able to determine the number of males or females in the facility. This is important when potential employees are inquiring the current employee demographic. Having this information available will enable one to quickly determine whether the environ...

... An administrator could simply inform the inquisitive parent that there are two employees that have more than four years of college level education and be correct; however that information doesn’t provide the whole story. Knowing the frequency doesn’t tell the entire story without knowing the total. In this case, two employees accounts for 20% of the facility. The parent would have a much better understanding of this information if he or she was advised the percentage. Furthermore, this chart also describes that the data presented is discrete ordinal data.

As one can see, data is very important in the education field. From the simplest form of frequency chart to relative frequency charts, the way that data is presented is vital. The extra time that it takes to calculate percentages could force a facility for miss a shipment resulting in hardships for others.

Another example of data which was made more easily comprehendible via use of a table would be found within the chapter titled “pottery;” the table located on page 119 includes 3 columns which outline the chamber number, number of sherds excavated, and comments about characteristic majority from each chamber (Weeks 2000: 119). This type of data representation using graphs, charts and tables is valuable for future researchers as it creates a more readily available set of statistics on which one can draw conclusions, compare data from another site, and reference historical

In addition, professional competence and integrity must be superior and finally, all research subjects or respondents must be safeguarded from potential harm and sabotage.

## Pie Charts

952 Words | 2 PagesOne of the most popular types of charts is the pie chart. The pie chart is used to visually represent the proportional value of individual parts to the whole. As the name describes, this is done by representing the numerical equivalence of each part as a piece of the whole pie, which in total equates to 100%. The Pennsylvania Department of Health (2001) says that pie charts are a good choice when a relatively small amount of parts, perhaps 3 to 7, need to be represented. With any more it becomes difficult to notice the differences in magnitude; thus, the pie chart loses its simplicity and impact. They can only be used when a total amount is known, one such example would be an election where the total of votes received by all candidates equals 100% of the votes. Or a budget where the total amount spending is divided in to categories such as labor, facilities costs, advertising, etc… which always are a part of the total. However, according to McBride (2003), the pie chart could not be used to show a change in spending through out a period. A pie chart shows data at one instance, like a snapshot and cannot be used to show change in data over time (para. 4). With the advent of computers, 3D graphs have become somewhat popular, unfortunately a negative aspect is that they add complexity to the image and can distort visual proportional value. It is recommended to stick with flat “2D” charts (para. 6).

## Summative Assessment

Common Core standard 3.MD.B3 asks students to draw a scaled graph to represent a data set with several categories. Solve one-and two-step “how many more” and “how many less” problems using information from the table (Council of Chief State School Officers, CCSS, 2010). The main purpose of this assessment was to evaluate student knowledge about graphs. We also wanted to know if students were able to compare and contrast information in the graph. We think that this is an important skill that students should be able to master. Students will encounter graphs while learning about other subjects. They must know how to collect data and use the information from gra...
