A good table, chart, or report makes a lasting impression and can spur readers to action. But too often the tables of numbers, charts, and reports go unread, are difficult to interpret, or lead to misinterpretation because of poor design. In this skill-building session, participants will learn to create clear, meaningful tables, charts, and one-page assessment reports that enhance the message by using techniques based on Tufte (2001), Evergreen (2014, 2017) and others. I will briefly discuss the move from raw student results to a summary of students' results and then describe the move to effective tables, charts, and one-page reports. We'll critique tables and charts, examine before and after makeovers, and look at elements in a one-page report. In addition, I'll describe strategies to promote colleagues' engagement. Participants will practice creating a data visualization using key principles and they will leave with engagement strategies. No software needed because we will use paper and pen. (This is not a technical session on using software.) This session will be useful to those who want to create concise, powerful reports that capture the audience's attention and convey the right message. Level: beginner in effective data visualization principles.
