Discussion Forum Directions:
WHAT:You will be writing three Discussion posts per week. Your main post must be two to three substantive paragraphs (250+ words) and include at least two reference/citations. Please follow up with two subsequent replies to colleagues. Each reply should consist of a relevant paragraph containing 50 words or more.
WHY:Discussion questions are designed for you to demonstrate your knowledge and understanding of the weekly material. The Discussion format assists with development of communication skills and critical thinking necessary for success in the modern workplace.
HOW:Your postings should be substantive, demonstrate independent thought relevant to the topic, and encourage continued discussion. Please avoid simply repeating previous posts and agreeing. Provide supporting evidence of your ideas and opinions through the use of personal or work examples, relevant articles or websites, or concepts covered in the week’s readings.
WHEN:Your primary post must be made by 11:59 p.m. (MT) Wednesday, and you must post the remaining two before 11:59 (MT) Saturday. You are expected to participate in the ongoing discussion on at least two different days during the week.

Are there examples of times in which knowing how to review and analyze data can be helpful in your current role?
