Because of the busy schedules of a Graduate student we were unable to survey each location at the same time so one may argue that the data can’t be as accurately compared. However, we also saw this as a plus to our narrative; this allowed us to see determine the best place overall to study during all of our inconsistent schedules.

Additionally, as 5 unique students we each have our preference of smart phone. 2 of the team members have an iphone and 3 others have an android, because of this we each took ownership of a particular site for both weekday and weekend analysis. We also conducted a control study and calculated the average differences between out phones to help calibrate all of our answers.


Although we only sampled 2 minutes of data, we spent a longer period of time within the spaces to ensure that we were not sampling a significantly louder or quieter time period.
