Students of classes VII researched on Data handling as a tool to organize, interpret and analyze any form of data.
They were introduced to the equation, Data = Knowledge = Power = Decision; to help channelize their research and study.
Initiating this project, the students had an interesting session with Mr. Premchand Palety, working with C fore, a research organization specialized in election surveys, research and opinion polls.
India is the largest democracy in the world. Naturally the process of election and its statistical analysis are very important in the Indian context.
He sensitized the students about the need for data collection and best representation which in turn would assist to arrive at answers/solutions. His session also, included his testimony of how their company reached 95% accuracy in exit polls (Tamil Nadu elections).
