Electronic reports

The HTML results are delivered to you with reports reflected in a tabulated view. Select the report page by clicking the related tab. Reports are interactive - sorting by column header and expand/toggle options are available to view the data in several ways. Information buttons can be found in various areas to provide additional guidance about the data presented.

You may print each of these reports or all of the reports at once. The document(s) will print as you have adjusted each report and as it appears on the screen. Note, however, every time the HTML is opened, it is in the original delivery format. It will not remember the previous sorting.

You may need to allow blocked content to fully review your report.

HTML results*:

  • Strategic Planning Overview (not included with all reporting): an executive summary of your strengths and challenges for the first column of data, as well as information on how the two columns of data compare
  • Item Report: responses for each individual item on the survey
  • Scale Report: responses for the survey scales and the items clustered within the scales
  • Summary Report: responses to the summary items on the survey
  • Item Percentage Report: reflects the percent of responses for answers 6 and 7 for all items on the survey
  • Demographic Report: responses to the demographic items on the survey

* Not all HTML files will include all of these reports and some reports will have different combinations. The report segments are dependent on the standard reporting for the specific survey version and the optional, value-added reporting selected.

Reviewing Your Data

Strategic Planning Overview (if included):

This report provides the best summary of your results for immediate action planning. It lists 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 higher or lower, as well as any large differences in importance scores.

For your strengths and challenges, additional indicators are also included. These indicators allow you to easily see if the item is significantly higher in satisfaction (reflected with a plus sign for significantly greater) or if the item is significantly lower in satisfaction (shown with a minus sign for significantly less) as compared with your comparison group.

Item Report

This report provides the detailed scores for all items on the survey, including campus-defined items you may have chosen to include. You have the option to sort on any of the columns on this screen by simply selecting the column you want to sort on. The first selection will sort in descending order and the second selection will sort in ascending order. Indicators are included in this report with a green star for items that are strengths or a red flag for items that are challenges, as originally listed in your Strategic Planning Overview.

The SD in the Satisfaction column refers to the standard deviation. This is the amount of variability in the responses.

The far right mean difference column reflects the column one satisfaction score minus the column two satisfaction score. The asterisks in this mean difference column indicate statistical significance. The key is as follows:

* Difference statistically significant at the .05 level

** Difference statistically significant at the .01 level

*** Difference statistically significant at the .001 level

When the second column of data is a national comparison group, the number of student records included in the group is reported at the bottom of the item report. This number also appears at the bottom of the scale report.

Scale Report

This report provides a top line overview of your results and shows the items clustered within the scales or categories on the survey. Collapse and expand by selecting the arrow to the left of the desired scale to see the items within each scale. You can also choose to expand/toggle all scales at one time. You may sort on the scale name, importance, satisfaction, performance gap, and mean difference columns as outlined above.

Indicators are included in this report with a green star for items that are strengths or a red flag for items that are challenges.

Summary Report

The summary report includes the average score for the responses to the summary items on the survey, as well as the percentage of responses for each of the possible indications. The percentages are truncated rather than rounded, so they may not equal 100 percent. These scores provide a bottom line on the experience at your institution.

Item Percentage Report

This report provides a look at the percentage of responses that indicated an answer of 6 or 7 to the items in the survey: 6 is considered "important" or "satisfied" and 7 is considered "very important" or "very satisfied." The gap percentage equals the importance percentage minus the satisfaction percentage. The difference column provides the difference between the first column satisfaction percentage and the second column satisfaction percentage for each item. You may sort on any of the columns, as described above. The percentage responses may be better understood on your campus than the average scores reported in the other segments of the results.

Indicators are included in this report with a green star for items that are strengths or a red flag for items that are challenges.

Demographic Report

This report provides the overview of the individuals who completed the survey. You can collapse and expand individual demographic populations by selecting the arrow to the left of the desired demographic category. You also have the option to expand all/toggle all demographic categories at the same time. A gold burst indicates the response option that was selected by the majority of survey participants.

Note: The demographic segment is not included with all of the target group reports.

Printing Your Reports

You may print from any of the HTML report pages. The report will print as it appears on your screen. An alternative option for printing your reports is to use the PDF version of your report(s) included with your Zip file. Note that not all report segments found in the HTML are included in the PDF version.

Copying the HTML version items into Excel

You can copy and paste the items and data from the HTML Item Report and Item Percentage Report into Excel. Start from the bottom right corner to select the text and then use “paste special” into Excel.

We know you will find these data to be very valuable. Please contact us at 800-876-1117 or at SPS.Tech@RufaloNL.com to let us know how else we can be helpful.
