How I Use It
I use DataClassroom with my students as they gather data from classroom experiments and proceed to analysis. I also use it with students performing independent research where they need a robust and visually stimulating data analysis and graphing program.
DataClassroom is a great tool to move students into the new age of data analysis. The Tidy Data structure allows kids to think in terms of variables instead of just collecting numbers in categories. The analysis and statistical applications using the student derived data is a snap, and as DataClassroom adds more stats into their arsenal, I plan on moving entirely to the platform. The graphing feature is high quality in terms of appearance and functionality. I love the clarity of the graphs and the ability to add multiple statistical analysis tools in each graph. Adding graphs, captions and data tables is much easier than spreadsheet packages. The tutorials are also a great addition to the site where kids can learn how/why the tools are there and refer back to them as needed. I can also move between Google Classroom and DataClassroom seamlessly so that kids can work directly on their projects. The customer support is outstanding. All in all I plan on moving to DataClassroom entirely for my classes over time.
