Strategies to analyze the data

The next step of the project is to know more about data behavior and look for any kind of relation between variables and general context (survey answers), we use the next table criteria to describe the possible strategies we are going to use in order to explain and understand the data for 12 schools. Variable What could be an interesting observation Suddenly changes Specific behavior Periodicity Tendency Periodical change seasonality ** High pass Filter We are interested specially to know what is the impact of high, low and mean value of this variable in relation with other Luminanc 1.-Event (how bright e is each classroom? 2.- Periodical changes (how fast the bright change?) and related this change with another variable or Tendency Seasonality** Compare this data plot with other variables and observe similarities and singularities We suggest reduce the among of data and use envelope Type of Mathematical Treatment Reduce number sample (AVG interval) Expected information after mathematical treatment Observe in more detail the data, specially to know frequency, representative values (highest and lowest values of the measure) Observations about data plots Many noise in low frequency. This type of data plot is quite similar to the sound level data plot How can be useful to make school profile Compare the results of this variable between schools and show the levels of conditions ‘good’ ‘bad’… Using guidelines and answers of the survey we would be able to give advices and compare data plots versus survey answers Notice the relation (if it exists) between luminance and learning environment (luminance by itself and luminance within other

Air speed

Envelope detector

After doing some filter, perform frequency analysis

Knowing more information about this variable during hour lessons and compare behaviors between different days

The data plots show: Strong periodicity, tendency If we want to know how bright are the classrooms ; we consider the mean and standard deviation of the

Special treatment

Air temperature Air Tempera ture Event: we are interested on knowing how warm the classrooms are? Suddenly changes in the temperature (high and low values) Tendency during school hours and all period Envelope Reduce the interval (for some schools) Get more details (information) of this data plots Notice the pattern in more detail It would be better if we can extract information because for the school hours we have many jumps Observing original data we just can see patterns Look if there is any relationship between: Pulse channel and Air temperature . we consider both luminance outside and inside in the same figure and compare it in the same figure variables) We need to consider that: Suddenly luminance changes are due to. human actions (open curtains. lack of concentration. turn on the light) Periodical changes can be also due to weather conditions outside Radiant Tempera ture How skin feels weather Tendency Seasonality Reduce number sample -AVG interval Notice particular changes on the data during lessons and to compare difference between school days and weekend This signal doesn’t have too many noise Using guidelines and answers of the survey we would be able to give advices and compare data plots versus survey answers See relationship between this variable and CO2.people behavior for instance fatigue. CO2 generation… We would be able to get the values for each classroom and compare it with guideline data and plot these boundaries To compare the natural and artificial light inside the classrooms.

Periodical change: how is the impact of changing in the temperature in relation to other variables and human behavior (lack of concentration. CO2 and Air temperature Relative humidity We would be able to compare both data plots inside and outside values of this variable Identify the worst and the best school according to the guidelines and the data plot values We would be able to notice current situation of every classroom. CO2…) Event (what are the levels of Rh inside of the classrooms) Suddenly changes during school hours Tendency Seasonality High Pass Filter Special treatment if we use low pass filter Envelope Zoom the data pattern to identify any pattern that relates this variable with others (CO2. school CO2 Two kind of events: General Event: we are interested to know how polluted are the classrooms? Particular event (during hour lesson) : how is the change in the values of this variable during Seasonality High Pass Filter Envelope Tendency Periodicity Give advices according to the evaluation of the data and guidelines and the survey . fatigue. Air speed) specially during lesson hours See how is the impact between this variable and when variables as air temperature. pulse channel have a representative change We would have a better and clear information about this variable particularly during lesson hours and when the change of students happened Kind of periodicity during school hours. increased levels during the week Possible relationship between this variable and CO2 B5 classroom has a lot of noise Other schools have a lot of information during school hours.

this data need a special treatment . CO2…) Sound level Event: we are interested to know how noisy are the classrooms? Frequency If we consider the measure every second we suggest high pass filter The data plots show a lot of noise.school hours (every 50 minutes ) And also to know Suddenly changes in the air pollution (high and low values) Periodical change: how is the impact of have a change in the air quality and the relation with other variables (sound level. maybe we can apply a combination of filters or design one filter during the envelope process results Tendency (respect to CO2 levels) Suddenly changes in the sound levels (high and low values) We suggest read about the impact of the sound level in the field of Quality Indoor Air and the relation between Healthy learning Envelope in the signal Also it is important to know what are the optimal measurement for this variable because Periodical change: how is the impact of Reduce the number of . fatigue. pulse channel) and human behavior (lack of concentration.

CO2…) Pulse Channel Two kind of events: Seasonality intervals AVG we have many data and because of the behavior of this data we have many noise Envelope General Event: how many movement are inside classrooms Tendency Tendency of data and the relationship with other variables for instance a drop in the levels of CO2 and the impact or relation with Pulse channel… This data plot is quite similar to a bar char. so we need to observed data using different inspection. maybe invert the axis (just for visual analysis) This data plot is quite similar to the sound level Periodicity Particular event: How is the change in the levels of movement during lesson hours and compare the levels of pulse channel between days. school days and weekend Compare all different classrooms in the same figure Compare Pulse channel versus CO2 and others variables Use the guidelines to give advices about the current situation . fatigue.the changing the sound levels in relation to other variables and human behavior (lack of concentration.
