This is my final blog post regarding my genius hour project. Overall, I’d say that I was satisfied with my work. I would have liked to have gotten more responses (I received 55) but I sent it out in every way I possibly could. I knew a lot about my project from the beginning but reading and annotating definitely broadened my knowledge. Also, by doing some sort of action research I learned a lot about what were the problems in my school, and it was very interesting to see. I am proud of my survey since I think it hits the key points of what I thought would be affected by sleep. I am also very proud of the presentation that I made since I spent some time making it and it is very pleasing to the eye. One of my main challenges was analyzing the survey data and trying to draw conclusions. Since only one person answered they were at the recommended amount of sleep, I didn’t have much to compare my results to. Also, all the data was all over the place, it wasn’t necessarily like everything I read about during my literature review. Since the data didn’t really turn out how I expected I couldn’t really do what I had planned to do when I first started the project. I had to adjust and just have my peers be my audience. By giving my class presentation and posting the link online for people to see I think I am reaching the people I now intend my project to be for.
