The segment comparison report allows faculty to compare themselves to other courses in their program, department, college/school, or institution. Each question that has a calculated mean will be listed with the statistics available for the course and then the option to add a segment on for comparison purposes.
To choose the area to compare to, open the 'your course compared to' drop down and choose the applicable segment. The report will then reprocess to include the mean and frequency distribution for the chosen area.
Each question can be expanded or collapsed to display a frequency distribution for the course as well as the distribution for the comparison segment.
This report also includes a mean difference column which will calculate if the course is much lower, lower, similar, higher, or much higher than the comparison segment based on a standard deviation bell curve.
