Day 4 - Pooling, Organizing, and Analyzing Your Data.
-----------------------------------------------
Learning Objective:

Today you will learn how to pool your data and organize it by making a chart. You will then analyze your data from the chart you have made.


Scientific Methodology:

  • Pooling your data
    Have someone collect the data from everyone who measured an eye. Express the importance of reproducibility. Explain how the credibility of results increases with the amount of accurate data you have and how it increases even more with the amount of data others have that support your findings.

  • Organizing your data
    Organize your data by making a chart. Plot your data in the chart provided.

  • Analyzing your data
    Analyze the chart. Is it easier to see the growth of the eye over time by looking at your chart than by looking at the montage you created in NIH image? Why or why not? Do the results seen on the chart confirm your predictions? How do they differ? Can you explain why they differ? Are your results supported or contradicted by the results of other groups doing the same experiment? Does this make your findings more or less believable? Can you come up with possible explanations for the few stray values that occur along the growth curve?


    Activities:
    • First thing you will need to do today is to write down your initial hypotheses.
    • Next you will need to collect data from everyone who measured an eye.
    • Plot your data on the chart provided.
    • Now write down your initial analyses.
