Abstract

As program evaluators we aspire to conduct sterling evaluations. However, the value of these evaluations quickly declines if we fail to effectively communicate findings in meaningful ways to stakeholders. In my work presenting data to a wide variety of audiences from elected officials to university leaders, coworkers, academics, and partner organizations, I have put effort into being concise, accurate, and clear in my communications. I have been less intentional about designing the graphics and other elements of data presentation in ways that align with how our brains operate and how we best retain information. So I was very curious about what “Presenting data effectively: Communicating your findings for maximum impact,” by Stephanie Evergreen, has to offer to my work as a Cooperative Extension administrator, educator, program evaluator, and professor.
