COMMUNICATING RESULTS FOR
EFFECTIVE DECISION MAKING
Note that the figures contained within this presentation
are fictitious.
Why do we need to communicate results?
AGS results are used at USC to:
 Inform strategic decision making
 Assess program and institution performance
 Influence improvements to programs
 Review learning and teaching
 Develop internal policies
Why use visualisations?
“Numbers have an important story to
tell. They rely on you to give them a
clear and convincing voice.”
Stephen Few
Choosing the
right medium
Textual
Visual
Oral
Tapping into
human nature
Over 50% of the
cerebral cortex is
involved with the
processing of visual
inputs.
-Lu & Dosher
There are over 130
million sight receiving
cells in the retina.
