How to Use Data Frames to Evaluate Learners' Performance?

A data frame is a tabular structure that comprises rows and columns, where each column denotes a different thing you want to measure,, and each row signifies an observation or record. Data frames are widely used to organize and analyze data in various domains, including education.

One of the most significant applications of data frames in education is evaluating learners' knowledge and understanding of a particular subject or topic. For instance, an educator can create a quiz to test students' knowledge of world capitals and currencies, where each question consists of three parts: the country name, the capital city, and the currency used in that country. To answer this, students can fill in their responses in a table with three columns, one for each part of the question.
