- Comprehend difference between a poor visual and an effective one and identify examples of each.
- Employ preattentive attributes to direct attention and provide a visual hierarchy of information.
- Recognize flair that doesn’t add informative value and be comfortable cutting it from visual displays.
- Know what type of visual to use given the information that is to be displayed.
- Understand affordances, accesibility, and aesthetics and how to apply these design principles to data visualizations.
- Synthesize lessons learned to transform a poor visual into an effective one.
