Data Rep Cupcake Testing Process
The series of videos of cupcake testing are for my Data Representation final preparation. I ran a “Taste Test” for my Data Representation planned final.
For my final, I plan to bake the increments of the Happiness Index into cupcakes. Each cupcake represents a different country. Its sweetness is mapped to that country’s position on the Happiness Index.
I did a test run and baked cupcakes with three variants of sweetness.
My users could taste the differences and understood the concept.
It will be a little more light-spirited and less obvious when I bake countries that only have minute, granular differences in sugar. I plan to use a dry-weight scale so that I can be precise.
Then, I will display the cupcakes in a clear display case in the position of the spot in the Index— making a physical graph of the Happiness Index.
