DS19s project last week was to collect both NSS and University rankings data then display this data in a way that’s easily digested by the viewer. Using the data, we created two dashboards for each NSS and Uni rankings. One was an overview dashboard and the second an interactive dashboard where an individual university can be compared to another University or University group.
The data collected from Times Higher Education and The Guardian was collected by scraping and utilising macros in order to collect all the data from different pages of the website. This can be seen in Carmen’s alteryx workflow linked bellow.
The NSS data was much easier to collect as the different excel files can be easily downloaded from the website. However this data still needed a lot of work, cleaning each file and then joining the data to be able to view no just the current year but all of the archived years as well. This can be seen in Joe’s Alteryx workflow in the link bellow.
Bellow are the links to the dashboards created in the project. Clicking on the pictures will take you to the dashboard on tableau public.
University Rankings Dashboards
Firstly the University Rankings Dashboards starting with VIkash’s overview dashboard.
Next is Jess’s dashboard where the user is able to select a specific university to compare to the rest of the ranked universities.
National Student Survey Dashboards
Tim and SIjia created the overview dashboard using the NSS data.
Lastly Hannah’s dashboard displaying all the NSS data for a specific uni.
