More!
Photos of set-up
Screen-shots of what test subjects see
Logical units (not hundreds of minutes)
Avoid many zeros (use 10-³ instead of 0.001)
Avoid Keys/Legends

Units & Axes
Keep colors consistent
Plot your scale appropriately
Label the axes, title
Graph Guidelines
Use Excel's scatter plot instead of line
Watch you font size
Subtle Colors
•Keep the number of colors low
--Too many colors distract
•You do not need to use
RED

and

BLUE
for everything.
•Try different shades of 1 color
•Coordinated color scheme.

Color bar for titles
Feeling Judgey
Why this crazy bad text background?
Good text amount
Horrible amount of text. No attempt a bullet points.
Missed opportunity for colorful bar graphs or title text
Way too much text
5 columns is overwhelming
3D depictions of 2D data are dumb
-Sleep on it. -Be ruthless. -Get help.
Fun circle photo!
Easy to read, good text level
Results graph could be labeled better
Little grey maps are arranged snaky
