You will complete the Get Started with Tableau tutorial

In this assignment, you will complete the Get Start ed with Tableau tutorial, along with two supporting documents.

This tutorial is for individuals who have zero experience with Tableau and it will walk you first through the interface and also basic functionalities, follow by an analysis of regional sales data of a ‘superstore’.

The tutorial is available here: https://onlinehelp.tableau.com/current/guides/get-started-tutorial/en-us/get-started-tutorial-home.htm

The additional documents are the attached Action/Reasoning chart.  This chart will help you track your ‘analytics pathway’ as you work through the analysis.  Additional instructions and guidelines are in the document.

Finally, you should submit a 1-2 page (minimum, double-spaced) narrative of the data and your analysis.

You refer back to the readings and presentations in Week 6 and consider such questions such as Who is the audience? (or who might be the audience?) and What is the Message?    First concentrate on the data and the results (sales data).

Then, how does the final visualization fare against some of the criteria we’ve discussed, such as Shaffer’s 4 C’s of data visualization?

It’s ok to be critical if critique is a warrant.  This is, after all, a tutorial and not solely YOUR analysis.

In the end you should submit the following:
Firstly, tableau file with visualizations (Export as Tableau Packaged Workbook format, *.twbx)

Secondly, entire workbook printed as PDF

Thirdly, action/Reasoning Chart

Fourthly, Narrative of data and analysis

You do NOT need to upload your results to Tableau Public as described in the tutorial.

If you have any questions, do not hesitate to post a question in the Ask the Professor discussion area.
