This publication provides examples that illustrate how school psychologists might use graphs to improve communication of their perceptions, data, and understanding of clients' behavior to parents and students, and to other educators. The booklet is divided into two parts. Part I presents 15 graphs which were sent to school psychologists in Iowa who wrote narratives to accompany the graphs as though they were to be included in a psychological report. Multiple examples of graph explanations are provided, depicting behavioral, academic, and test data. The explanations are not presented as models of the "right" way to discuss the graphs, but rather as possibilities for consideration. Part II consists of 19 original graphs contributed by school psychologists to offer diverse examples of graphic communication of information. A list of people who contributed to the document is provided. (BH)
