Name of the Cooperating School Observed: Leyte Normal UniversityDate of Visit: February 9, 2011Location of the cooperating school: Tacloban CityAs we went over and examined the board displays of the said campusparticularly on the left side of the lobby of the college building, we noticed thatthere were there were about nineteen board displays. The board display is foundbeside the second door of the dean of College of Education. They are not in placeswhere target viewers can see them because in the first place, the students are notallowed to pass by the lobby. Most of the displays are about the personalinformation and schedule of the teachers of the university. Most of the images arepictures of the school faculty and colors that are mostly seen are green, blue andred. Materials that are mostly used in making the displays are cartolinas andstyrofoams. Borders are also used by emphasizing certain words. We didn’t noticeany errors in the board displays. Some of the messages are not clear and easilyunderstood.

Did the board display design reflect the likes/interests of its targetaudience? Why? Why not?
No, because the board display is blunt due to the usage of color. As weobserved the bulletin board and examined it. Its target audience are the incomingfirst year students. So, the bulletin board should be made according to theinterests of the said audience. The board should contain a highlight andbackground color respectively. Moreover, the board is not attractive. It can’t catchattention at the first glance. Also, the arrangement of rectangles is not well done.
Was the language used clear and simple for the target audience tounderstand? Why? Why not?
Yes, the language used was very clear and simple. The target audience caneasily understand the message or the content of the bulletin board. The languageused became clear because the pieces of information were organized and theyare arranged in bullet forms.
What do you think was the purpose of the board display? Was it effective?Why? Why not?
The purpose of the bulletin board is to inform the incoming first yearstudents about the performance and excellence of the university. Also, toencourage them that enrolling in this university is not a waste of time and moneybecause the responsibilities of the campus are stated there.
What suggestions can you make in order to improve the displays of the board?
Our first suggestion is the color of the displays. Attractive color schemes fitthe interests of the target audience. Second is the arrangement of the displays.Since there are nine displays, it would look organized if the remaining one whichhas not a pair will be put in the middle of the four pairs. Third, the capitalization of the letters didn’t follow the visual principle of only making the title capitalized if and only if it is only one word. The only capitalized letter should only be the firstletter of the word.
