Association for Institutional Research (NJ1)
Fostering data-driven decision-making is not an easy task, nor is getting busy people's attention in this age of information overload. How we write about and disseminate our findings can help. Writing to the audience, timing, formatting, choice of medium, and connecting results to institutional goals and current, even controversial, issues are keys. This paper offers suggestions and examples from a former journalist turned institutional researcher. A list of additional resources is included.
