Map Quiz Wrong Guesses Across Five Intro to IR Courses

Description

This is a simple data set that records every wrong guess for map quiz assignments I gave in my intro to IR class at Clemson University across five semesters.

Usage

map_quiz

Format

A data frame with 1772 observations on the following 8 variables.

class

an ordered factor of the semester in which the wrong guess was recorded by a student. Levels include "Spring 2018", "Fall 2018", "Spring 2019", "Fall 2019", and "Spring 2020."

students

the number of students in the class taking the map quiz.

region

the region map on which the country was located. Values include "Europe", "Africa", "Asia", "Latin America", and "MENA." "MENA" is short for "Middle East and North Africa."

country

the country I asked the student to correctly identify

guess

the country that was the actual state incorrectly guessed by the student

ccode1

the Correlates of War state code for the state I wanted the student to identify in country.

ccode2

the Correlates of War state code for the state that is the wrong guess for the state in guess

mindist

the minimum distance (in kilometers) between country and guess

Details

Students can always not make a guess and be wrong, which explains the NAs in the data. Students were given five separate numbered maps and prompted to identify 10 countries each on them. The maps never changed across five semesters, nor did the prompts. Use these data as you see fit. Obviously, FERPA considerations mean I can't share anything else of potential value here.
