Report Navigation (Features)

This web-based report was designed so that users can interact with the data. Here are a few pointers and features that will help you navigate the report:

  • As you click on each tab, your current tab is highlighted so that you always know where you are in the report.
  • If your survey administration included more that one group of respondents, you will see “drill-down” tables that provide a breakdown of data for each subgroup of raters. The report defaults to the expanded view, and includes the option to collapse the information to simply view the average of all respondents.
  • Guiding questions are provided throughout the report to assist in the interpretation and use of the data. Simply click the arrow to expand.
  • The “Print Report” button allows users to view, save, or print the entire report.
  • “Back to top” buttons have been added at the bottom of each page for ease of navigation
