Abstract

The role of information visualization (i.e. the orchestration of data, design, and narrative) in online learning is an increasingly important facet for educators, researchers, and designers; however, few authentic examples exist for collaborative discussion and exploration as a grounded methodology in the field. To this extent, we detail the development of an e-assessment progress-monitoring environment in the area of reading, writing, and language development for use with children (grades 1-8) who are deaf or hard of hearing (DHH). In addition, we present an overview of information visualization and provide four examples of integration within the current environment designed for both students and teachers. We hope to further the discussion of information visualization in the field through authentic examples of integration.
