Primary Artifact: Title: Midterm Quiz Quiz_FL_State_Park_Volunteer_ Author: Ameer Edwards, Date March 31, 2016. Importance: This artifact showed my ability to apply course materials and objectives we had learned in weeks 1 through 4.
The artifact required us to critically think and analyze data in order to write a research question as a Smart Objective. This artifact improved my ability to apply information to a smart objective rather than just use excel to get the mean, mode, or standard deviation. The use of the pivot table helped me to summarize, analyze, explore, and present my data. Pivot tables were one of the excel tools I struggled with, but over time I began to see the advantages of using pivot tables to synthesize large chunks of data.
