Conference Session This event was part of the eXtension 2012 National Conference

Session #726

Behind Every Number is a Story

There are a lot of numbers produced in eXtension. I know that when I hear those numbers, I want to know things like “How is that number produced? What exactly is it measuring? What time period does that number reflect? Are there mitigating factors or assumptions that inform that value?” Behind every number is a story.

In this session I’ll demonstrate a new tool at for collectively exploring the data coming out of the www and create websites (and soon the AaE/Ask site) in eXtension. I'll cover the technical details of how the numbers are produced so that we have a common foundation to begin to explore the stories behind the data and go beyond ‘reports’ to tie our data together in ways we haven’t done before.
