Measure & Analyze Data

Why should you use this template? 

For those of us who love data, and what it can show us, diving into analytics is an exciting venture. However, there are many who dread crunching numbers for their job, and need a helping hand when it comes to putting these numbers to use.

It can be a daunting task trying to get a lot of quantitative information through to a user in a short amount of time. Once you’ve designed a system for this data delivery, it’s important to get feedback from your user audience to determine how clear the information is. 

Testing your data and analytics designs will usually come in the form of usability or comprehension testing. Click tests can be key, but also allowing your participants to openly explain their opinions about your work is illuminating.

  • Measure the clarity of your data graphics or displays
  • Analyze the importance of the different information your product brings to the table
  • Evaluate the difficulties participants have with your designs


Organization Benefits

  • Increasing the clarity of your designs will lead to greater engagement from your audience
  • Prioritizing different parts of your data & analytics can change how participants interact with your product
