Worth – 30%
ANALYTIC REPORT (20%- Due Week 11 Sunday
11:55pm) and PRESENTATION (10% - Due Week 10 in Tutorial Time)
Analytic Report:
Learning Outcomes Assessed: A3, K3, K6, and S2:
Purpose: The purpose of this task is to provide students with practical experience in working in teams to write a Data Analytical report to provide useful insights, pattern and trends in the chosen/given dataset. This activity will give students the opportunity to show innovation and creativity in applying Watson Analytics and designing useful visualization solutions and predictive solutions for various analytics problems.
Group Presentation: Week 10 (Scheduled Laboratory) Learning Outcomes Assessed: K4, A1, A2, V1, V2
Purpose: The purpose of the oral presentation is to provide an opportunity for students to present the results of DATA Analysis and to share this knowledge while practicing their verbal communication skills
Project Details: Your task for this analytical project is to use analytical tool (i.e Watson Analytics) to explore, analyze and visualize one of the two given dataset. Your tutor will assign you the dataset. This dataset reflects reported incidents of crime (with the exception of murders where data exists for each victim) that occurred in the City of Chicago from 2012. Data is extracted from the Chicago Police Department's CLEAR (Citizen Law Enforcement Analysis and Reporting) system. In order to protect the privacy of crime victims, addresses are shown at the block level only and specific locations are not identified.Your intended audience is a law enforcement agency’s middle and top middle management. Your primary goal is to provide different and interesting insights in the lights of 20 questions listed below. The dataset could be downloaded from the following link
Data Sets: Dataset 1 -
https://data.world/mchadhar/chicagocrime-dataset
Dataset 2 -

You will complete it with your team (max 3 members enrolled in the same laboratory). It is expected that each team member will contribute equally in the project. Each team will turn in one joint document and give a joint presentation in Timetabled Laboratory class in Week 10. In addition, each individual team member will write a short reflection as part of the report. You will receive feedback on the draft about presentation choices, content, analysis, and style.

Please refer to marking scheme at the end of the assignment for other tasks and expectations.
Report Submission:
• Hard-copy to tutors/lecturers assignment box in week 10. Double- sided printing for the hard-copy is encouraged in order to save paper.
• You will also submit a 7-8 pages report (about 1500 words not counting cover page and references) of this project. At least 15 references in your report must be from peer-reviewed sources. Include any and all sources of information including any person(s) you interviewed for this project.
• Please note that all references must adhere to APA style. See http://owl.english.purdue.edu/owl/resource/560/01 and http://www.apastyle.org/ for details on how to format a report and how to cite references. Make sure your follow formal report structure with cover page, introduction, use of headings, subheadings, conclusion sand reference section.
• You are reminded to read the “Plagiarism” section of the course description. Your essay should be a synthesis of ideas from a variety of sources expressed in your own words. All reports must use the APA referencing style. University Referencing/Citation Style Guide: The University has published a style guide to help students correctly reference and cite information they use in assignments
(American Psychological Association (APA) citation style,
http://www.ballarat.edu.au/aasp/student/learning_support/generalguide/prin t/ch06s04.shtml or Australian citation style
• Reports are to be presented in hard copy in size 12 Arial Font and double spaced. Your report should include a list of references used in the essay and a bibliography of the wider reading you have done to familiarize yourself on the topic.
• A passing grade will be awarded to assignments adequately addressing all assessment criteria. Higher grades require better quality and more effort. For example, a minimum is set on the wider reading required. A student reading vastly more than this minimum will be better prepared to discuss the issues in depth and consequently their report is likely to be of a higher quality. So before submitting, please read through the assessment criteria very carefully.
