1 00:00:00,000 --> 00:00:09,403 [MUSIC] 2 00:00:09,403 --> 00:00:13,437 Hi, my name is Megan and I'm a teacher here at Treehouse. 3 00:00:13,437 --> 00:00:17,410 We're going to talk about how to present an analysis. 4 00:00:17,410 --> 00:00:22,582 But first things first, before you start creating a presentation, 5 00:00:22,582 --> 00:00:25,801 you need to consider who your audience is. 6 00:00:25,801 --> 00:00:30,704 Audience is the persons who will listen to or 7 00:00:30,704 --> 00:00:33,627 read your presentation. 8 00:00:33,627 --> 00:00:38,935 For instance, if I worked with data relating to student test scores, I 9 00:00:38,935 --> 00:00:44,697 would present the information differently depending on who my audience is. 10 00:00:44,697 --> 00:00:50,758 If I'm presenting to students, they will probably want to know the range of grades, 11 00:00:50,758 --> 00:00:54,051 like how many students got A's, B's, etc. 12 00:00:54,051 --> 00:00:59,033 If I got a C and most of the class got a C, then I'll probably feel 13 00:00:59,033 --> 00:01:04,111 differently about my grade than I did before that information. 14 00:01:04,111 --> 00:01:08,511 Whereas if I were presenting the information to teachers, 15 00:01:08,511 --> 00:01:13,527 knowing the range of scores is important, but what is probably more 16 00:01:13,527 --> 00:01:19,163 important to them is which topics or skills had the most incorrect answers. 17 00:01:19,163 --> 00:01:24,671 This would let me as a teacher know that I probably need to go over that skill or 18 00:01:24,671 --> 00:01:25,715 topic again. 19 00:01:25,715 --> 00:01:32,564 Before creating a presentation, clearly define who your audience is. 20 00:01:32,564 --> 00:01:37,520 Who will be listening to or reading the presentation? 21 00:01:37,520 --> 00:01:41,381 What information will be important to them? 22 00:01:41,381 --> 00:01:44,663 Is there anything they want to know specifically? 23 00:01:44,663 --> 00:01:48,837 If you're able to, you can ask audience members if they have any 24 00:01:48,837 --> 00:01:53,570 information they're looking for before you create the presentation. 25 00:01:53,570 --> 00:01:58,080 Gather as much information about your audience as you need to feel 26 00:01:58,080 --> 00:02:02,264 comfortable creating a presentation geared towards them. 27 00:02:02,264 --> 00:02:04,300 Now let's dive into presentations.
