Presenting Data Effectively: Communicating Your Findings for Maximum Impact, about how to better design our reports, slideshows, research posters, and graphs.

Research-based design guidelines for reports, slides, and data visualizations. Download Stephanie’s popular Evaluation Report Layout Checklist based on her dissertation.
