Using R to Collect, Analyze and Visualize Graduate Attribute Data

  • Jake Kaupp Queen’s University

Abstract

This paper will cover the use of the opensource software R, a prevalent IDE (Rstudio) and many of the community built packages that can be used in concert to help collect, analyze and visualize graduate attribute data. Using these tools, developing user-focused workflows and applying effective information visualization principles this paper will illustrate how these tools can be used to quickly and effectively share a vast and complex amount of information to faculty and programs. This approach has been effective in building engagement and buy-in by placing the data in the hands of instructors and program committees. This paper will cover approaches to
interfacing and leveraging other systems to streamline and  unify existing processes.
