Reviewing Your Data Strategic Planning Overview (if included): This report provides a simple listing of the 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 your first column of data to your second column of data and identifies where satisfaction levels are significantly different, as well as large differences in importance scores. This report provides the best summary of your results for immediate action planning. Item Report: You have the option to sort on any of the following columns on this screen: Item Importance Satisfaction Performance Gap Mean Difference Simply select the column you want to sort on. An underscore will reflect the column you have selected. If you select "Items" the first selection will be in ascending numeric order and the second selection will be on descending numeric order. For importance, satisfaction, performance gap, and mean difference, the first selection will be in descending order (highest to lowest) and the second selection will be in ascending order for the selected score category. The SD in the Satisfaction column refers to the standard deviation. This is the amount of variability in the responses. The asterisks in the mean difference column indicate statistical significance.
