What a week/weekend! This was the first election I really invested myself in and paid attention to from the beginning. This election was really important to me because I was able to vote. I felt so lucky to have been able to vote in such a high-stakes election. I won’t get political, but I feel that one of the most important things that I want to get out of this next presidency is a renewed sense of unity within the country. We have been so divided for so many years, and I really want to see that change.
This week, I finalized my second survey. I had a meeting with my content advisors on Thursday about the progress of my survey, and I finished it and sent it out (or Mrs. Danser sent it out) on Sunday. It was a quick turn around, but I thought that it would be manageable with how extensive my outline was. We experienced a minor SNAFU, and had to change the format of the survey last minute. The original format looked much shorter to participants, but the spreadsheet it produced was very illogical and would have been a pain to sort through.
I tried to statistically analyze my data from the first survey, however, I hit a roadblock when nothing I entered into the graphing website we use in stat was producing what I needed it to. I’m meeting with my stat teacher about graphing it this week.
This week will just be a sit-back-and-relax week since people are taking my survey all week. I might try to meet with my stat teacher, but other than that, there’s really not a lot I can do.
