Handout summary of our 2012 AEA presentation on great data visualization using basic document and spreadsheet software.
Demonstration Session Abstract: In the evaluation process planning, collecting, and analyzing the data are almost equally paramount. However, it is the data presentation that will ultimately initiate how data and resulting information are used. The data visualization field is here and now with best practices abounding but, how does one implement these best practices with the usual software? This presentation will demonstrate how create meaningful and attractive reports and presentations using basic word processing and spreadsheet software and will thereby enhance attendees' ability to communicate more effectively with peers, colleagues, and clients without buying expensive software or hiring a graphic designer.#reportlayering #chartjunk #datavisualization #clean #fonts #colors #textboxes #Word #Excel #DataVisualizationandReporting #2012Conference
