CBW036: Evaluating Data Visualizations - Steve Fleming

In search of increased use and clarity of information, the National Center for Educational Achievement systematically evaluates how its data visualizations communicate with educators. Building on the work of noted author Stephen Few (Show Me the Numbers and Now You See It), NCEA identified key components of data visualization best practice and then set about refining their products. Steve Fleming from NCEA will share the criteria they use to examine and improve their data visualizations. He’ll show examples of previous data visualizations and identify what improvements were implemented as a result of their evaluation work
