Evaluated skills

  • Tell a story through data visualization
  • Create clean, simple graphs
  • Question 1

    How does storytelling relate to graphs?

    • You need to consider your audience so that you ensure you're presenting the information in a way that can be understood by them.

    • If all the data is the same, it's not particularly interesting to the audience, so you want to figure out how to present it in a way that is more engaging.

    • The way information is presented visually can help reflect the brand and product, which is part of the brand story.

    • All of the above

  • Question 2

    Which statement relates to the work of Edward Tufte?

    • Data visualizations need to be eye catching in order to appeal to the audience.

    • Viewers should see the data before getting distracted by the graph.

    • Every graph or data visualization needs a legend so it doesn't clutter the graph.

    • All of the above.

  • Question 3

    Which statement reflects David McCandless's approach to data visualization?

    • Every graph should have at least two levels of information in order to serve as a point of comparison.

    • Human stories with collected data are the visualizations most likely to touch an audience.

    • Visualizations should tell a story as well as being visually appealing.

    • All of the above.
