Common Online Data Analysis Platform (CODAP) provides an easy-to-use web-based data analysis platform that can be incorporated across the curriculum to help students summarize, visualize, and interpret data, advancing their skills to use data as evidence to support a claim.
All data science game scenarios follow a similar design: students take context-specific actions in the game. They store their data, organize it, analyze it, and visualize it in the surrounding CODAP environment.
We’re developing sophisticated process analytics to make sense of the large quantity of student data associated with complex, open-ended engineering design tasks.
Our Common Online Data Analysis Platform (CODAP) offers easy-to-use web-based software that makes it possible for students in grades 6 through college to visualize, analyze, and ultimately learn from data. Whether the source of data is a game, a map, an experiment, or a simulation, CODAP provides an immersive, exploratory experience with dynamically linked data […]
