Application: The Creation of Effective Visual Aids
Developing the ability to transform a set of raw numbers, statistics, and data into an attention-grabbing and engaging visual aid that emphasizes key points can be a challenging, but worthwhile, exercise. There are a number of useful resources to help identify appropriate visual aids by the type of data, and how to use color to focus attention on key statistics.
To complete your Assignment (visual aids)
- Find three sets of data from criminal justice resources. It is suggested you use the websites located in the Learning Resources, to find your data.
- The data can address recidivism rates, gun control, victimization or any other topic of interest to you.
- Then create Your own visual aid for each of the sets of raw numbers (for a total of 3 visual aids). These can include graphs, tables, pictures, etc. Your visual aids must be developed on your own and are not taken from another source (This means you will be creating your own charts and tables. You are not copying an already created table or chart and turning it in. You must include the complete citation/reference for your submission and data).
To complete your Assignment (1-2 page narrative)
- After you’ve created the visual aids, select 3 criminal justice settings such as policing, probation, courts, etc.
- Then explain how the visual aids are appropriate to each of the criminal justice settings you selected.
- Finally, describe the information presented in each of the visual aids you selected. Be sure to justify your responses using the Learning Resources and the current literature.
- Then find the visual aid documents you saved as “WK10Assgn+first initial+last name” and click Open.
- Be sure to attach all documents containing visual aids for the Week 10 Assignment before clicking Submit.
- Finally, click the Submit button to turn in your Assignment(s) for review.
