Challenge: Improving the Clarity of College Information using the “College Scorecard”
Contribution: UX Design, Information Architecture
Deliverables: Sketches, Design Rationale Report
The College Scorecard is a site by the US Department of Education’s College Affordability and Transparency Center that allows students to compare colleges and make informed decisions. A criticism has been that it does not present the necessary information in very clear manner or allow for easy comparison.
My team focused on simplifying and making College Scorecard more intuitive. We want students to be able to use the information on the site, and not worry about how to access the content or if the content even exists.
