Want to explore the Data Buddies data?


CERP is thrilled to launch its new data visualization website displaying Data Buddies data. Ron Metoyer, associate professor of computer science and engineering at the University of Notre Dame, designed the website, alongside a team of student developers, and CERP Research Scientist Burçin Tamer. This project was funded by an NSF award to the CRA: CNS-1246649.Data Viz

The data visualization website allows viewers to explore trends in students’ experiences in the computing community, and features the capability to compare data across student groups (e.g., women vs. men; students of different racial background). Currently, the website is displaying data collected during the fall semester of 2014.

Data were collected from Data Buddies departments. Is your department a buddy? If not, help the computing community by volunteering your department to become a Data Buddy today! Visit CERP’s website to sign up: https://turing.cra.org/cerp/data-buddies/.
