Angela Tombari, Research Analyst at Kentucky Center for Education Workforce Statistics, collaborated with stakeholders statewide to revise a Teacher Prep Feedback Report, foreground the information that is most useful for supporting the report’s intended impact.

In this session, these SDP Fellows will discuss the challenges of data visualization choices and their implication for data use by different stakeholders.
