The ‘Actual situation’-tile shows the score (here: 5,4) and the appropriate bullet in the management summary above it explains that score in words (here: "Slightly above average score").
Next, there is the Conclusion page. Click on the tile or click in the navigation bar:
Analyze > Actual situation > Conclusion
The Conclusion-page opens with a more detailed summary and some graphs, for example:
The table (upper left) summarizes various aspects of the score. For example, its relative height (here: "Slightly above average"), which dimensions (groups of questions) of the questionnaire score best/least, and what percentage of respondents score an overall red score. The bar chart shows how the overall score of each of the respondents compare (here: "33% scores from 3 to 6"). The pie-charts shows the mix of respondents according to their maturity level and their profile. Some assessments might not show either of these pie-charts (depends on the assessment settings; contact the Assessment Coordinator in your organization). Also the cut-off values for when red turns amber and amber turns green depends on these settings. These 'traffic light'-colors do not influence the score. They are just a visible overlay to make interpretation of the scores easier.
How does PRAIORITIZE calculate a score?
Imagine a question with three answers. Each next answer is better than the previous one. The worst answer scores 0 out of 10, the middle answer scores 5 out of 10, and the best answers 10 out of 10. Now, suppose a dimension has one worst answer, 3 middle answers, and two best answers. The score for that dimension is (1*0 + 3*5 + 2*10) / 6 = 5.8. The answers to a question with 4 answers score 0, 3.3, 6.6, and 10, respectively. Five answers? 0, 2.5, 5, 7.5, and 10. Two answers? 0 and 10. Any (sub-)total of questions and/or respondents always refers to the base answers given. PRAIORITIZE never uses an average of averages.
Assigning the red, amber, and green colors
To facilitate the interpretation of scores of questions and respondents, PRAIORITIZE adds a layer of colors (red, amber, green) to improve contrast among scores. For example, in a Grid Map (see below) there are so many scores visualized tightly together that having just the score would make it difficult to see immediately the essence of the assessment results. These 'traffic light'-colors do not influence the score. They are just a visible overlay to make interpretation of the scores easier. When applicable, a graph's legend indicates the cut-off values, like here:
The Assessment Coordinator in your organization is able to change these cut-off values if needed.
Scores per dimension and respondent group
The tables on the bottom half of the Conclusion screen show the score per dimension (a group of questions) and - below that - for each of the groups. Each entry in the table shows its score and corresponding RedAmberGreen indicator. Click the column headers to sort the table.
Graph: the Grid Map
To analyze the actual score more in-depth, click on the ‘Graph’-option in the navigation bar. This will show a so-called ‘Grid Map’. It shows respondents as the rows and the questionnaire's dimensions as the columns. The Topics dropdown allows you to focus on one or more topics. Yet, it is also possible to see the respondents’ ambition here by selecting the Ambition option. The Respondents dropdown allows to in-/exclude certain respondent groups. The View dropdown allows you to slightly modify the appearance of the graph.
When interpreting a Grid Map, you should particularly look at red/orange columns: these dimensions are an issue throughout the organization/respondent group. And look for red/orange rows: these represent a (group of) respondent(s) who is lagging behind (like Tamara in the Grid Map below).
PRAIORITIZE calculates scores using closed multiple-choice questions. Yet, there is the possibility to activate an open "Any comments or suggestions?"-text box. The results are summarized in this Comments screen. Click the column headers to sort the table.
Clicking on the respondent's email address (here, the second column) opens your default email editor so you can quickly react to the comment.
