Session Abstract: 

Increasing stakeholder involvement throughout the evaluation lifecycle, not only enhances stakeholder buy-in to the final evaluation results, but it also ensures that the evaluator is taking into consideration multiple viewpoints to be able to provide a more comprehensive picture of a program or initiative.  Data placemats, a data viz technique to improve stakeholder understanding of data, can be used to communicate preliminary evaluation results during the analysis phase of the evaluation life cycle. When done correctly, it offers stakeholders an opportunity to form their own judgments about the data and weigh in prior to the final report. In this session, the presenter will review the concept of data placemats, focusing specifically on the nuts and bolts of constructing a data placemat.
