Assessment Description

Business Context:

Politicians  and  votes  have  always  worried  about  electoral  fraud  even  before  the  digital  age. Recently, for example, Donald Trump claimed that there had been electoral fraud in Minneapolis in the United States (U.S.).  The U.S.  and other countries say they are very concerned about the recent elections in Guyana.  They say that vote counting was interrupted in a particular region and never completed.

Given the concerns over electoral fraud, a large survey was carried out as part of “The Electoral Integrity Project” of the University of Sydney and Harvard Kennedy School. Approximately 3800 experts in different countries were surveyed to get their perceptions on electoral integrity.

Suppose that  your  group,  as analytics professionals,  have been  asked by the United States Federal Election Commission (https://www.fec.gov/) to create a dashboard with a selection of the survey results and to present the visualisation to Congress, in order to determine what the experts are saying about how common electoral fraud is around the world.

Dataset and variable descriptions:

Data Set:

•   You will be emailed World Expert level data on (electoral perceptions of >3800 experts) at the beginning of the assessment

•   File name: PEI expert-level data (PEI_7.0) v2 09-05-2019.xlsx

Explanation file:

•   A data code file explaining what each column input is (i.e. the survey question asked and how it was measured) is a pdf called “EI 7.0 Codebook v2 .pdf” will be emailed to you at the beginning of the assessment

Assessment Tasks

•   Part A:

o Construct a dashboard with at least three charts, using software of your choice

o You will be given 50 minutes to create visualisations in your groups that best represent a selection of survey outcomes

o After 50 minutes have elapsed upload your visualisations with some brief commentary to the drop box under the Assessment table

o Your dashboard should represent the survey results to indicate to the Federal

Election Commission whether electoral fraud is likely in the 2020 US election

•  Part B: Once the visualisations are created, each member of your group should take one of these roles:

o Data Analyst (Understands data storage/access and analysis)

o Data Visualizer (Understands best practice in designing of dashboards)

o Analytics Translator (Understands how to translate the results for executives in brief and layman’s terms (simple language)

o Politician (understands the “big picture” to be in the audience asking questions)

o If you only have three members, you can combine the Analyst and Visualiser roles.

•   You will have 30 minutes to prepare.

•   Each group will have 8 minutes to present the dashboard to your manager and the wider audience.
