Damian, as I look into the code for the 'Explained Visually' examples, I see that they use AngularJS in addition to D3 but I remember you mentioned you wanted to use React. So, as we work on the visualizations, should we try and use any of these frameworks or stick with D3 and html/markdown/pure JavaScript? If we want to use those frameworks, which one should we focus on? It seems that they both have a learning curve, with some people saying that react might be simpler.

Hi Luciana,

Ben can speak to this more authoritatively than I, but I suspect that getting something with D3 and html/markdown/pure JS to start would be great. We can simultaneously consider frameworks. I’ve heard great things about reactJS and am inclined to go that direction in my own work, but am not an authority. Thoughts?

@lcancado

Copying my email response here so that we are all on the same page. Damian forwarded me a tweet from Victor Powell where he mentions that the OLS explorable uses reactjs. It looks like he decided to change to reactjs from angular, his earlier explanations seem to have used angular based on the code.

It sounds like reactjs is the way to go in terms of framework, however it is a new framework and new way of writing code and there is a learning curve, so I'm afraid it might not be very straightforward for us (or at least me) to use it for this project at this point. I'll stick to D3/JS/html/markdown for now for my current module and in parallel I'll try and get better acquainted with reactjs. Maybe @bclinkinbeard can give us some more advice on this.

@ganders309 @lcancado Charlie is going to get lunch and we’ll hopefully come up around 1:30. I’m putting out a data analysis fire right now so that time might slip a little

Was able to make the bar chart work with my data, although it doesn't look quite like the way I want yet. Here is what I have so far. Will be editing content based on your feedback tomorrow, and researching the other suggestions for displaying the data. http://bl.ocks.org/lcancado/raw/40dc9aeec84eec66bf98/

@bclinkinbeard, I could use some help. In my stacked multiples graph, the columns represent individual students. But the multiples/stacked action breaks if I try to use the student name (or any string variable). It has to do with this code: data.forEach(function(d) {
d.date = d.date;
d.value = +d.value;

Here is the element I was working on: http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/caacc189aefb074a901e

My Raw Scale Score module outline: http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/raw/318f08317c81f7eb9ceb/
I will post the actual script before lunch today.

I created the difficulty calcuation slider (http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/4c1fd82b591d762d5af2),
the stacked-multiple charts (still need work-http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/caacc189aefb074a901e),
and have started work on the chromatic distributions (http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/b7def8ed1d70453f3f92). Still need to workout displaying individual scores along with the categories so the scores can be toggled on and off.

I plan to use Luciana's lovely graph but so far I am having trouble isolating the parts I need.

Damian Betebenner
@dbetebenner
Thanks Gretchen. As we work out wrinkles on the D3 visualizations, do you have a good draft of the text that will go along with the visualizations in place? It’s easy to get bogged down in the programming and make no progress so I’d be sure to get the text done and we can put in placeholders for the visualizations.

Hi all, sorry for not responding to questions and requests, Gitter does not notify me of mentions even though I seem to have that option enabled. The best way to get my attention, especially during weeks I'm not actively working on this project, is probably creating a GitHub issue and mentioning me.
Damian Betebenner
@dbetebenner
@ganders309 @lcancado Hi Luciana and Gretchen. Can we meet briefly at 3:00 to see whether there are any issues needing to be discussed? I’m not here tomorrow but will be here Wednesday and Thursday.

Here is my latest version. Will be polishing the content a little bit more tomorrow but this is basically what I plan on presenting on Wed. http://bl.ocks.org/lcancado/raw/40dc9aeec84eec66bf98/
Also, here is the list of "modules" that I'll show as example: http://bl.ocks.org/lcancado/

Luciana, Your list of modules looks great!
Luciana Cançado
@lcancado
Thanks, Damian. I made a few more edits and small changes. Here's the version I will be presenting tomorrow: http://bl.ocks.org/lcancado/raw/40dc9aeec84eec66bf98/

I neglected to post my project earlier. It is not as far along as you had hoped. The last third still needs to be filled out. I just ran out of steam. http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/raw/93699e1edd199f0e6994/

Now that the staff meeting is over and we’re two weeks away from your final presentations, Charlie and I wanted to meet to discuss next steps. Given that your efforts have become distinct, we think it would be best to meet with each of your separately. We were thinking 10:00 and 10:30 as time to meet. Does that work for each of you?
Gretchen Anderson
@ganders309
another swipe at developing a module. Have a version with a bar chart but it doesn't tell the story because I can only set the y-axis up to start at 0. Starting a 0 for the scaled scores makes the scaled scores look like they don't match the number-correct scores. So, trying a bullet chart. http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/raw/76deb2e3b294e139acf4/

Thanks Gretchen, Please focus on getting the narrative in place. The visualizations will follow that.

I have made most of the updates we talked about in our last meeting and also have the sort feature working. I am now working on the last piece, the "supposes". I am a little unsure about how to structure it though. Originally I was going to have them all at the top and one graph at the bottom that would change depending on the "decision type" selection, I know we talked about splitting the decisions into norm, criterion and a combination of them but I think that might
... make the module look a little too busy. Let me know.
I still need to play with my made-up data a little bit more to spread out the scores for the school group.

I wanted to include a comic or funny anecdote about norm/criterion or percent/percentile to introduce the module but couldn't find anything interesting. Would you know of one by any chance?
Damian Betebenner
@dbetebenner

Hmmm, I did a search for “norm referenced” comic on google and came up with nothing very good. I can’t think of any off the top of my head either.

One thing I’d recommend adding as a final touch is a Creative Commons license at the bottom.

@dbetebenner @cdepascale I'm thinking about emailing a link to my module to everyone so that they can play with it before the presentation tomorrow, is that ok?

No surprise, I am still working on my module. I have kept it in the same gist if you want to take a look at where I am in the process. http://bl.ocks.org/ganders309/raw/7963844828cdc99178ee/
