"Data Visualization" by Chuck Powell

“In this session we’ll explore the natural synergy between assessment and data visualization.  As you collect data that informs your understanding of student outcomes or attempts to measure the impact of your teaching intervention, data visualization tools can be an important aid in improving not only your own understanding but also in communicating your results to a wider audience.  A picture truly can be worth a thousand words, but only if it is a thoughtful and accurate presentation of the underlying data.”
