Making Data Visual (DVS Workshop Series)

All Libcal Events (Huginn Feed) - Thu, 2016-09-29 14:00
Bostock 023 Training Room
West Campus

The process of making data visual can be nuanced and iterative.  Sometimes we start a project with a very specific idea of the kind of visualization we want, but other times we may not be sure what will work best.  This workshop will address three important aspects of making data visual: identifying the goal of your visualization, identifying the audience of your visualization, and understanding the pros and cons of different types of visualizations.  This workshop will focus not on any specific software application, but instead will focus on helping attendees develop instincts for what kinds of visualizations match well with particular datasets, goals, and audiences. The emphasis for this workshop will be on standard visualization types, like bar charts and scatter plots, rather than non-traditional visualizations or graphics.

2:00 PM - 4:00 PM
SSRI-Gross Hall 230E
This workshop covers the process of writing and testing survey questions in depth. There is no way to be certain that respondents will interpret your questions exactly as you intend and provide the answers you want, but this workshop will introduce what is known about the psychology of survey response and generally accepted best practices for question writing. Topics include how survey mode affects question writing, the potential for bias in questions, appropriate answer options, and writing survey questions for experiments. The workshop will conclude with a review of methods for testing questions to ensure their validity and reliability.
