Reviewing Data

Strategic Planning Overview:

This report provides the best summary of the results for immediate action planning. It lists strengths (high importance and high satisfaction) and challenges (high importance and low satisfaction and/or large performance gap) for the first column of data in your report. It also compares the first column of data to the second column of data and identifies where satisfaction levels are significantly higher or lower, as well as any large differences in importance scores.

For the strengths and challenges, additional indicators are also included. These indicators allow users to easily see if the item is significantly higher in satisfaction (reflected with a plus sign Plus Sign for significantly greater) or if the item is significantly lower in satisfaction (shown with a minus sign Minus Sign for significantly less) as compared with your comparison group.

 

Item Report

This report provides the detailed scores for all items on the survey, including custom defined items that may have chosen to include. Users have the option to sort on any of the columns on this screen by simply selecting the column users want to sort on. The first selection will sort in descending order and the second selection will sort in ascending order. Indicators are included in this report with a star Green Star for items that are strengths or a flag Red Flag for items that are challenges, as originally listed in the Strategic Planning Overview.

The SD in the Satisfaction column refers to the standard deviation. This is the amount of variability in the responses.

The far right mean difference column reflects the column one satisfaction score minus the column two satisfaction score. The asterisks in this mean difference column indicate statistical significance. The key is as follows:

* Difference statistically significant at the .05 level

** Difference statistically significant at the .01 level

*** Difference statistically significant at the .001 level

When the second column of data is a national comparison group, the number of student records included in the group is reported at the bottom of the item report. This number also appears at the bottom of the scale report.

 

Scale Report

This report provides a top line overview of the results and shows the items clustered within the scales or categories on the survey. Collapse and expand by selecting the arrow to the left of the desired scale to see the items within each scale. Users can also choose to expand/toggle all scales at one time. Users may sort on the scale name, importance, satisfaction, performance gap, and mean difference columns as outlined above.

Indicators are included in this report with a star Green Star for items that are strengths or a flag Red Flag for items that are challenges.

 

Summary Report

The summary report includes the average score for the responses to the summary items on the survey, as well as the percentage of responses for each of the possible indications. These scores provide a bottom line on the experience at the institution.

 

Item Percentage Report

This is a new way to review the results. The percentage responses may be better understood on the campus than the average scores reported in the other segments of the results. This report provides a look at the percentage of responses that indicated an answer of 6 or 7 to the items in the survey: 6 is considered "important" or "satisfied" and 7 is considered "very important" or "very satisfied." The gap percentage equals the importance percentage minus the satisfaction percentage. The difference column provides the difference between the first column satisfaction percentage and the second column satisfaction percentage for each item. Users may sort on any of the columns, as described above.

Indicators are included in this report with a star Green Star for items that are strengths or a flag Red Flag for items that are challenges.

 

Demographic Report

This report provides the overview of the individuals who completed the survey. Users can collapse and expand individual demographic populations by selecting the arrow to the left of the desired demographic category. Users also have the option to expand all/toggle all demographic categories at the same time. A Star indicates the response option that was selected by the majority of survey participants.

Note: These report options are not all included in the target group reporting.

 

All these reports were produced by Noel-Levitz.
