Scattergrams allow you to view the GPA and SAT/ACT scores of those CGHS students who were admitted or denied at a particular college. Obviously, the names of the students are not listed.
The data on this scattergram is not real. However, it is an example of how the student data would be displayed regarding Admitted vs. Denied Since this is our first year using Family Connection, scattergrams will not have relevant data until our current senior class begins to receive admission decisions from the colleges.
