Title: Influencing Decisions with Charts – Excel 2003
Url: https://mcli.maricopa.edu/dvl/modules/excel-2003
Publisher: Maricopa Advanced Technology Education Center (MATEC)
Description: From the Maricopa Center for Learning and Instruction at Maricopa Community College, Gail Korkames, and Kay Gaisford, this page presents how to manipulate data and influence decisions with charts using Microsoft Excel 2003. The module is presented in the context of digital visual literacy (DVL), the "set of skills that enable students to function in an increasingly digital and visual workplace." In this lesson, visitors will find an instructors' guide and four phases of the lesson: an introduction with background information, a demonstration of Excel tools, an independent student activity, and a quiz. The introductory PowerPoint presentation covers topics such as charts versus tables, good versus bad charts, labeling, deceptive information presentation, chart types, and designing effective charts. This is an excellent resource not only for courses or programs focused specifically on DVL, but for many other fields as effective and persuasive presentation of information is a skill that benefits everyone.
