I’m working on a communications project and need a sample draft to help me learn.
Hi, I need an Infographic made on this feasibility report I wrote. I also need a rough draft made. So I will be needing 2 documents at the end.
FOR THE DRAFT:
For this draft, I want you to start to create an Infographic and get used the program you choose to use.
- Give your Infographic a title (this may change when you submit the final product)
- Provide one element : a chart, a picture, a quote, a video (this may change when you submit the final product)
- Provide the in-text citation for the element you use. (Remember if it is something you have created with no outside research, such as the results of a survey you conducted, the citation would be Source: Primary.
- Do not provide the Reference page for this draft
- If you are using a program such as Infogr.am, or easel.ly please submit the URL in a document. Hint: before you get too far into your draft – make sure you know how to generate the proper URL. See “How to Submit Your Infographic” resource.
FOR MAIN DOCUMENT- CAN BE ON POWERPOINT
The purpose of the infographic assignment is to compile your feasibility report’s process, research, and data to enable a broader audience to understand and retain the information.
Students will compile the feasibility report findings into an infographic. Infographics convey information in a succinct way to increase understanding and retention. Students will determine the most important findings and carefully select an effective design format. Instead of assuming a role, the audience is your classmates. Unlike the board of director or senior management audience for the report, this audience is less familiar with the product, service, strategy, initiative, program, process, or change.
Using computer-assisted technology (I would recommend the free infographic site on the web – Infogr.am – though an infographic could be made in PowerPoint), prepare one infographic. This infographic should not merely “dump” all that you have learned about your leader into a graphic form, but instead should present high-level conclusions and recommendations based on your research.
- Perform a web search for infographic images to understand how data has been amassed to reveal high-level conclusions.
- Review the following articles:
- The Do’s And Don’ts Of Infographic Design Amy Balliett
- The Do’s And Don’ts Of Infographic Design: Revisited Nathan Yau
- 10 Steps To Designing An Amazing Infographic Josh Smith
- Log into Infogr.am and get a feel for the ways this program presents the data.
Review the feasibility report for the most critical information that led to your recommendation.
Select the best template and then the best format within the template.
Prepare your data in the infographic format.
- The free site Infogr.am requires you to log in and create an account.
- In the account creation process, you are required to provide a user name and an email address.
- You will be the only one with access to the account.
- At the end of the infographic creation process, regardless of the platform you choose, you will download the finished product image file, and upload the graphic to the designated assignment area for grading.
Your professor can only grade assignments uploaded to Moodle. Submit the Infogr.am URL in the assignment “comments” section. (There is a very brief tutorial in Week Five titled “How to Submit the Infographic”)
In addition to the completed infographic, you will upload the APA reference list.
Submit your Reference page as an attached document.
Criteria for Evaluation
- Assignments will be assessed with the Written Deliverables rubric with attention to these areas:
- The infographic will feature at least two elements – one must be a chart (line chart, bar chart, pie chart) – make sure you adhere to proper format for charts (title, source, etc.) See “Reminders About Graphics” PowerPoint. The other element might be a picture, a video, a quote, etc.
- At least two sources should be cited as in-text citations in the infographic. The Reference page is submitted with the assignment.
- The infographic should make sense on its own, without the audience knowing or reading further information that might be contained in the Feasibility Report.
- Responsive to the audience’s subject knowledge, attitudes, interests, and values as well as the purpose and occasion.
- Employs format specifications detailed in the “Your Task” section of this assignment description.
- Uses graphic elements to make data and comparisons easier to understand and retain.
- Incorporates effective language for the audience, purpose, and situation.
- Reflects professional communication standards including tone, research, APA documentation in-text and in a reference page (two sources required), grammar, and overall writing standards.
