Interactive Website for Values Diagnostic Reporting and Analysis
MetadataShow full item record
The goal of this project is to help sustainability professionals and students learn about their values and biases that impact their work as facilitators. This project focuses on an interactive website which contains a values diagnostic used for analysis and reporting through a survey constructed by Dr. Bruce Hull. The results of the survey will show the survey taker where they stand on sustainability issues. The website was created to optimize the process of parsing the data and outputting a result that Dr. Hull can use as a learning tool. The project is broken up into three different parts: the website platform, data input, and the data output. The website platform needs to be easy manageable. WordPress is a free and open-source content management system, that was the best choice. The Qualtrics survey is the main source of data input. The survey will be static to ensure accurate comparisons of previous data to a user’s current data. It contains two different types of questions: in the first type, the user will be asked to allocate a total global budget of $100 among six choices to determine the outcomes of sustainable development efforts, while in the second type the user is given different scenarios and they must choose their degree of agreement on a scale from strongly disagree to strongly agree. The data analytics will be automated using the Qualtrics API and the Pandas library in Python. The data output is a report which clearly communicates the user’s values and biases, while also displaying how they compare to previous users, to assist the user in learning about their stance on sustainability.
