    Local Context - How to Read the Scattergram for Content?

    AVAILABILITY

    • High Schools


    College Kickstart already had a link for counselors to view specific details of a particular school, which helped analyze and better help students in their application.

    When opening the VIEW DETAILS window, the counselor would only be able to view a table of all the applications for those schools.

    Now we have just released a scattergram graph in which counselors will not only be able to view the data in a table but will also be able to visually view the applications in a graph. When creating a custom profile, the counselors will be able to use the scattergram to visually view the information and the summary views that are provided. You will also be able to view a particular class and compare why a particular class was more successful than another. Counselors will be able to view which application type was used and which got better results.

    Counselors will be able to edit the vertical and horizontal axis. If the local content contains RANK, WGPA or UGPA, you will be able to select one to use for the vertical axis:

    In the same way, you will be able to modify the horizontal axis by selecting SAT or ACT:

    On the right of the graph, you will notice two summary views. The Views will reflect the information that the graph displays. It will show the bottom 25% and top 75% percentile for all students that got accepted and are enrolled.

    On the right, you will be able to search for a specific class, type of application, and hooks. Whenever a selection is made, the graph will change to reflect the selection. The summary views will also change to reflect the selection.

    Instead of looking for a particular result, you will now be able to hover over a point, and a small pop up window will appear which will show the details for that particular point.
