Data Analysis Presentation: Further Instructions and Grading Rubric

During the final face-to-face class meeting of the semester, students will present the findings of the analyses
tied to their final paper.
The following elements are required:
• Background/intro
• Statement of purpose
• Research Questions
• Methodology
o Data utilized (where it came from, what it represents, etc.)
o Variables of interest (what they represent, how they are measured, etc.)
o Technique(s) (chosen technique(s) should relate to your RQs)
 Assumptions and evidence you did not violate them
• Results
o Display key elements of results (avoid pasting all output, that is overwhelming)
o Interpret the results in practical terms
• Conclusion
o Here you can talk about the implications of your findings and/or provide a status update on
your full report

Presentations should be approximately 10 minutes (no more than 12) and supported with a slide deck
(PowerPoint or otherwise). Students should rehearse so that they, a) can speak confidently about their
analysis, and b) stay within the allotted time. Students that are struggling to launch their analysis are
encouraged to schedule office hours well before the final class meeting.
