Part 2 (35%) – Final Report

The country representatives have accepted your proposal. Please go ahead with carrying out the activities/tasks mentioned in the proposal (part 1). In addition to the activities stated in part 1, the representatives would also like you to include the following items in your report:

  1. Explore the relationship across a pair of different aspects of the country over time. For example, is there a relationship between the population and the environment indicators over time? Can this relationship be quantified? Note, that your choice of aspects could be influenced by the available data.
  2. Construct a confidence interval for one of the aspects. Please state all assumptions clearly and provide an interpretation of the interval.
  3. Are there any legal or privacy issues with the data that is being used in the report? Please provide some details/justification.

The three requests above must be incorporated into the methodology section i.e. update the methodology section from part 1. As before, we are expected to apply the knowledge from the unit modules to address these requests. One of the main features of the final report is the results of the analysis. For this section you are expected to produce a dashboard using the data for your country. The dashboard is simply a collection of different types of graphs (similar to the ones in our tutorial/lab work). The emphasis is presenting the data using different types of plots such as time series plots, scatter plots, histograms, box plots and/or cumulative percentage charts. Ensure that the plot type is matched well with the data that is being used. In addition to this, results should also include numerical data summaries as well as the analysis pertaining to the first two requests.

Lastly, it is very important that we provide brief commentary on all plots/results of the analysis. The commentary is expected to be based on the content covered in the unit. The final report should contain the following components:

 Title page – update from part 1  Cover letter – update from part 1: This should now also include an updated

statement about what the report is about. It should explicitly state any changes (if applicable) that you have made since the original proposal.

 Tables of contents – update from part 1  Executive summary – A brief outline/summary of what the report contains. This

summary must be between 0.75 to 1 page maximum. This summary must NOT contain any plots and/or tables. It is strongly advised that this section be written at the end once all the other sections have been finalised.

 Introduction – update from part 1 (proposal section): Incorporate the coverage of the new requests.

 Results – Refer to the description of this section on the first page.  Conclusion & Recommendations – Adequately summarise the main results of the

analysis and propose recommendations/suggestions for future work. For example, what (in your expert opinion) would be possible if you had more time and resources.

 References – update from part 1: A list of resources (include data sources) used for referenced in the final report. Please use the Chicago referencing style. Refer to the unit outline for further details.

 Project timeline – update from part 1: List of activities/tasks that were completed in order to finalise the report and time taken for each of these activities.

 Appendix – This section should contain the original proposal (part 1) submission. Word limit Please note that there is a maximum word limit of 2100 words for the report. This excludes the title page, cover letter, table of contents, references, project timeline and appendix. Additional information and notes Please watch the accompanying assessment video which explains the requirements in greater detail. Please consult with your tutor as well as use consultation times to discuss or seek feedback for the final report before the due date. Similar to Part 1, the frequently asked questions (FAQs) document has been uploaded on Blackboard which will include popular queries from student and staff. Please review this document on a regular basis. You may also find the FAQs document for Part 1 helpful as well. In addition to this, the discussion on the ED forum may also be useful to students Submission details Please submit your final proposal via Turnitin on the 15th of October 2021 by 12 noon Australian Western Standard Time (AWST). Standard penalties (see unit outline) will apply to late submissions which have no approval. Please also be mindful of the academic integrity requirements for this unit.
