This course consolidates students' spreadsheet (Excel) and database (Access) skills, emphasizing advanced functions and data manipulation. Students analyze and integrate data from multiple sources and platforms to provide information to relevant stakeholders to inform decision making. Students create tools, such as macros and automated computer processes, to aggregate and organize data. Informed by data analysis and privacy best practices, students present information in a variety of modalities (e.g., reports, narratives, graphics, etc.) to ensure effective communication.
