Title:Every class at UIUC, by GPA
Author(s):Haas, Kajetan; Baeckelandt, Matthew; McCarthy, Matthew
Subject(s):GPA distribution
University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign

NOTE: This is an interactive visualization.

This visualization displays the University of Illinois’ GPA Dataset with the user’s convenience in mind. The idea of the project is to make a new and improved version of the popular UIUC GPA visualizations made by Wade Fagen-Ulmschneider.

We decided that the most important information to display is the Average GPA and the variance of the grade distribution. The idea is that if there is a high average GPA and a low variance, there are more consistent high grades given to students. In general, this can be very useful information to students, professors and advisors.

When looking at this type of visualization, most users are interested just a couple of classes. This is why we implemented a search feature. This allows users to quickly look up the class they are looking for.

Since the circles color corresponds to a specific subject, the most interesting information is actually when you filter for more than one subject using the tabs feature at the top. This allows the user to easily compare two or more subjects. For example, if you click on CS and MATH, you can clearly see the difference of grade distribution between them.
