Australian Graduate Survey 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. - Vries 2011 Source: Atranik 2011 Tableau Knowing your audience USC’s Organisational Chart Know your goal Enable insight "The purpose of visualization is insight, not pictures" Shneiderman 1999 GDS Dashboards Flowchart CEQ Dashboards Flowchart Levels of Analysis Graduate Destination Survey Benchmark Group Dashboard Course Experience Questionnaire Longitudinal Dashboard Graduate Destination Survey Faculty Dashboard Graduate Destination Survey Program (Course) Dashboard Course Experience Questionnaire Program (Course) Dashboard How dashboards are used Are they being used?
