Reporting Research Results Effectively
Volkwein, J. Fredericks
New Directions for Institutional Research, nS1 spec iss p155-163 Aut 2010
Assessment research is at its best when it packages research results and data so that they can be digested by multiple audiences. Too many assessment researchers spend all their efforts planning and executing the research project with little attention to closing the loop at the end. If assessment findings are not communicated effectively, the process becomes an expensive exercise in research design and data collection. Appropriately packaging research results for diverse audiences becomes a priority once the data are collected and analysis begins. In this paper, the author underscores the importance of communicating the findings effectively and reviews some best practices for reporting research results to diverse audiences in written, visual, and verbal presentations.
