Beschreibung

Do you communicate data and information to stakeholders? This issue is Part 1 of a two-part series on data visualization and evaluation. In Part 1, we introduce recent developments in the quantitative and qualitative data visualization field and provide a historical perspective on data visualization, its potential role in evaluation practice, and future directions. It discusses:

  • Quantitative visualization methods such as tree maps
  • Sparklines
  • Web-based interactive visualization
  • Different types of qualitative data visualizations, along
    with examples in various evaluation contexts
  • A toolography describing additional data visualization tools
    and software, along with their major strengths and limitations.

Intended as a guidance for understanding and designing data visualizations, this issue introduces fundamental concepts and links them to daily practice.
This is the 139th volume of the Jossey-Bass quarterly report series New Directions for Evaluation, an official publication of the American Evaluation Association.

Klappentext

This issue aims to reach a broad and diverse set of practicing evaluators and researchers who are regularly required to communicate data and information to stakeholders. The issue is Part 1 of a two-part series on data visualization and evaluation. In Part 1, we introduce the evaluation community to recent developments in the quantitative and qualitative data visualization field and provide a historical perspective on data visualization, its potential role in evaluation practice, and future directions. The chapters in this part will discuss quantitative visualization methods such as tree maps, sparklines, and Web-based interactive visualization. The qualitative visualization chapter describes a conceptual framework for understanding the different types of qualitative data visualizations before providing examples of visualizations in various evaluation contexts. The end of Part 1 contains a toolography describing additional data visualization tools and software, along with brief descriptions of their major strengths and limitations. Our goal throughout this series is to introduce some fundamental concepts in data visualization, linked to daily practice. This volume is intended as a reference and as a source for guidance and ideas for evaluators who are interested in, designing, and struggling with data visualizations.

practice.

2. Developments in Quantitative Data Display and Their 33
Implications for Evaluation Christopher Lysy

This chapter introduces evaluators to newer quantitative display types that have gained popularity over the last decade, and presents new functionalities, made possible by the Web, and discusses how these features can be used to increase the amount of data presented while maintaining visual simplicity.

3. Visualizing Qualitative Data in Evaluation Research 53
Stuart Henderson, Eden H. Segal

This chapter introduces data visualization techniques for qualitative data, and describes a conceptual framework for understanding the different types of qualitative data visualizations before providing examples of visualizations in various evaluation contexts.

4. Toolography 73
Susan J. Kistler, Stephanie Evergreen, Tarek Azzam

This chapter offers descriptions of a selection of the tools mentioned in the volume, as well as others in use in the field, and provides readers with a general estimate of their ease of use, whether free or not, and strengths/weaknesses.
