Data Collection

Size and complexity of the data. Sources of data online or created. Does the data match the key question? Is the source or method of collection clearly described and included?

* Complex data, multiple excel pages with a range of variables

* Data links to key question

* Data source given

* Complex data with a range of different variables

* Sources given

* Data links to key question

* Data with one or two variables

* Source of data given

* Data is sourced from pre – existing graphs

Accuracy of Infographics

Graphs produced are correctly labelled and titled with appropriate use of scaling. A range of different types of graphs, bar graphs, trendlines, pi diagrams to fit the data

* All graphs correct with titles and labels

* A range of different graphs appropriate to data

* Graphs mostly correct with titles and labelling

* A range of different types of graphs

* A limited number of graphs

* Only one style of graph

* Graphs collected rather than produced

Appropriate use of infographics

Do the graphs assist with answering the key question? Is the graph choice appropriate for the data? Are the graphs relevant?

* Data analysis supports and answers the key question

* Graph type supports and answers the key question

* Regression and analysis of variables included

*  Data analysis supports and answers the key question

* Graph type supports and answers the key question

* Some regression analysis completed

* Data analysis provides some answers the key question

* Clear explanations of “outliers” or odd data

* Reasons given if data gives a different answer to expected
