Assignment #12: User Feedback

For this last assignment before the final project, you will gather informal user feedback on the design and implementation of the visualization. Show your final project visualization, in its current form, to:

  • at least 5 people in this class, and

  • at least 5 people outside of this class.

Specifically ask for feedback on any or all aspects of the design visualization style, color, layout, interaction, presentation, etc.

Is your intended message conveyed? Does the user draw a correct and logical analysis or interpretation from the data?

Through your discussion with each person, ask for suggestions for improvement for:

  • short term -- can be implemented before the deadline, and

  • longer term -- if you continued working on this visualization (for a month, or a semester, or a year), what big visualization implementation challenges or other related datasets could you tackle?

Engage in the discussion & take detailed notes of feedback. Ask your feedback giver to sketch their feedback and suggested changes as appropriate. Include this imagery with your assignment writeup. Summarize this feedback, and analyze which components of the feedback you will incorporate into your final visualization. Be sure to discuss any unexpected comments or surprises in the feedback.

Team projects are expected to get more feedback than individual projects. Teams are encouraged to split up to gather feedback to ensure that each teammate can get feedback on their individual components of the project.
