OurSCHOOL and Comparison Lines Print or save as PDF

"What does the OurSCHOOL line (purple bar) represent in the interactive chart report?"

The purple line shows the OurSCHOOL median for that measure. The shaded purple area above and below the line represents the distribution of schools above and below the OurSCHOOL median. The area above the line represents how tightly the closest 25% of schools fall above the median and the area below represents the 25% closest who fall below. Therefore, the purple area is an indicator of not just the OurSCHOOL median value, but how closely the OurSCHOOL population tends to conform to that median.
 

 

   

 

"Why aren't there any OurSCHOOL norms or comparison lines in my charts?"

Some of the measures are newly introduced and the responses collected are still under analysis. Therefore, some of the measures do not have OurSCHOOL comparison lines. Once we are able to collect enough statistically representative data those lines will appear in your reports.
