VARIABLE DESCRIPTIONS

Reported Dashboard Terms: Spring 2017 - Fall 2019 (as of April 2020)

Each graphic column shows a pair of the following metrics along a dual-axis. (ex: purple graphics represent the total enrollment count and the corresponding response %.)

SCALE
Every question is rated by students on a scale of 1 to 5.  Depending on the qualifier, while  “5” = “Excellent”, “Strongly Agree” or “Yes” (and is in green tones).Average, or middle ratings hovering around “3” are represented by yellow bars.
AVERAGE WEIGHTED RESPONSE
Represents the WEIGHTED AVERAGE of each question.  This calculated data point, displayed as a gray circle, “floats” along the overall bar graph for each question, hovering closer to the right for averages approximating “5”, and hovering closer to the left for averages approximating “1”.  In general, the closer to the right, the “higher” the rating (or the more “yes” for yes/no questions), while the closer to the left, the “lower” the rating (or the more “no” for yes/no questions).
ENROLLMENT COUNT
Represents the Total number of the students enrolled.
% RESPONSE RATE
Represents the Responses obtained from the survey.
