Should we include every step in Data Exploration assignment
As we show the evolution of our thoughts/questions, should we include all the intermediate steps, in particular graphs, in our end result? For example, removing a few outliers. I am afraid this might make the end result quite long. Or do we include only the key transitions based on our own judgement?

Another question is whether there is a limit on page numbers of the end result.

Thank you.

RE: Should we include every step in Data Exploration assignment
That's a great question, and thank you for using the forum.

Don't worry about being exhaustive; you don't have to include every single chart you make (e.g. if you remove outliers, just saying something like "I removed the outliers" in your report is sufficient). However, if you create a chart that is important to your question, or if you see something you didn't expect, you should definitely include the image in your report.

There is no page minimum or maximum; if you have more than 15 pages, you're probably working too hard, or if you have under 3, including images, you're probably missing critical parts of the assignment. We will grade on content rather than page count, though a really long report may affect our ability to find the pieces we're looking for.
