ICT601 Business Analytics
Your BA consulting company has been approached by the Singapore Government who have asked you to conduct an analysis of the death rates of residents and how this has changed in recent times. In order to facilitate your analysis, you have been provided with a data set (see LMS) from the Singapore Department of Statistics that shows resident death (mortality) rates by a number of different variables.
You have been asked to conduct several specific analyses:
You will require additional data in order to perform your analyses. You should attempt to procure it for yourself. There is no limit as to what or how many data sources you use for this project. Whenever you do include an additional data source, you must ensure that you include the relevant metadata in the Appendix (see Section 1e of the Report Specification).
The assignment has 2 sections. Firstly, a written report and secondly a Tableau dashboard (if you are unsure as to what a Tableau dashboard is, please see Homework 8, and some of Homework 9).
The report is worth 70% of the marks for this assignment and will be allocated as below.
The Tableau Dashboard that you submit is worth 30% of the marks for the assignment. It will be marked as follows:
Marking Guide ICT601 Supplementary Assignment
Executive Summary (5 marks)
The purpose of an Executive Summary is to present to the reader the “highlights” of the report. It is important to note that for some of your readers, this will be the only part of your report they will read (particularly if what they read in the Executive Summary doesn’t grab their attention!)
We will be looking the following in determining the mark:
Introduction (5 marks)
The Introduction is somewhat different from the Executive Summary in that the idea is to introduce the rest of the report. It will more formally explain the structure of the report in that it will outline the main sections and perhaps outline the findings.
We will be looking at the following in determining the mark:
Report Primary Findings (45 marks)
This is the part of the report where you need to be providing answers to the three questions asked in the report specification. The marks will be allocated equally between the questions (ie., 15 marks each).
In marking this section, we will be looking at these points for each question:
Conclusion 5 marks
The conclusion is an important part of the report in that it is where you tie it all together.
Make sure you take this opportunity to once again highlight the important findings that you have made.
Appendices 10 marks
This section is where you should include your process documentation; the primary purpose of this is so someone would be able to pick up your work and continue with it (I think of this as insurance against becoming ill and being unable to complete the project). It should include any database designs, ETL processes that you used and metadata you used in the project. We will be looking for this section to be complete, AND, ask ourselves, could someone, using this documentation, be able to pick up the project and run with it.
