Kedra, Joanna – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2018

Duesbery, Luke; Braun-Monegan, Jenelle; Liu, Kimy; McCoy, Jan – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2017
The quality of a data display can have an impact on the interpretation of those data. A survey of the literature indicates that data displays can vary in quality of accuracy, clarity, and efficacy. In this study we develop and apply an evaluative rubric to graphs in a sample of six education journals: three research and three practitioner. Results…

Kalessopoulou, Despina – Journal of Visual Literacy, 2017
Children's museums and exhibitions designed for children are well-thought adult projects; however, children rarely participate in the design process.
