Charter School Graph Plot

By on

This is an interesting graph comparing public and charter schools based on their minority student population and their SAT scores. To be honest, the design of the graph isn't terrible. The goal of the graph seems to be giving the audience an overall impression of the disparity between predominantly Caucasian and predominantly minority schools. I do have two issues with the graph, however.

Rice School of Architecture

By on


The Rice School of Architecture has a visually appealing website, but the information is difficult to understand.

The data doesn't have sufficient hierarchy/relationships. The menu bar near the top has a lot of information, but that information is a bit overwhelming. It is difficult to determine if the menu bar has links to Rice Architecture information or general Rice information.
