While at Data Driven Detroit (D3), I designed the print version of the K12 Scorecard for Excellent Schools Detroit. The ESD Scorecard allows parents to assess school quality and compare Detroit kindergarten, elementary, middle and high schools across a consistent set of indicators. I helped summarize essential information from the online version into an accessible print version. Complex information included school data and the methodology uses to calculate grades. Extensive participatory user research was done with a variety of Detroit parents to determine the most convenient format, literacy level, and preferred information to be included prior to initial design. Iterative and human centered design will be employed in another round of user testing in 2014.
My Role: Participatory User Research, Data Cleaning & Management, Design & Layout.
