Description: In groups of 5, taking a look at 29 survey results from a language grammar workshop. Data from both rating and open-ended text needs to be extracted and input into visuals such as graphs/charts/word clouds. This is a role-playing activity.  Each group will decide what these survey results are intended for.  Examples include: future funding, grant reporting, community outreach, council updates, etc.

Materials: The survey responses are provided in hard copy as part of your convening in a box, and in soft copy on the USB drive as well as below for download.

Directions: Each group will decide individual member’s roles (facilitation, note taking, designing visuals, creating word clouds, etc.). Each group will determine a hypothetical purpose of the survey and how they will be presenting out to group.
