Assess the Usefulness of Existing Data

How useful is a dataset? Follow this short tutorial.

In the previous activity, the lecture described four main points to check if you want to reuse existing data:

  • Condition for reuse
  • Context
  • Trustworthiness
  • Persistence

In the following quiz, take a closer look at the description or metadata of some datasets and assess the usefulness of these datasets yourself. As the description or metadata of datasets can be lacking in several different areas at the same time, it will be indicated per assignment on which of the four main points your focus should be.
