Data visualization is a powerful means for telling the most impactful stories of our assessment data. With critical decision making relying heavily on assessment data it is imperative that the data we collect be able to get to the point and show what is really going on with our programs, colleges, and universities. In this workshop, participants will gain basic skills with data visualization, graphic design, and message branding in order to tell their assessment story. We will begin with an overview of assessment data visuals and the basics of graphic design including color and institutional or programmatic branding. Participants will then be able to practice their skills with sample quantitative data. Next, participants will practice their skills with qualitative data, ensuring a wide variety of data visualization experiences. Participants will also have the option to utilize their own assessment data to create visuals with input from a visualization specialist and graphic designer. Participants are asked to bring their laptops with Microsoft Excel in order to have hands-on practice with sample data. A graphic designer will be on hand for consultations about design and color choices for presenting data effectively.
