How do I create a Matrix Key Performance Indicator for my institution?

Updated

In Elevate K-12 Analytics, you can create Matrix Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that compare two of your Metric KPIs. After selecting two metric KPIs for comparison, you can define segments and configure a calculation matrix based upon the two metrics.

Note: You must create Metric KPIs before you can create a Matrix KPI.

By default, a new Metric KPI is configured to display two data ranges, or segments. Segments indicate the number of numeric ranges you wish to identify and view in a Matrix KPI.

To add segments to your KPI configuration, click the Segment drop-down menu [1]. You can select up to five segments.

Enter a label name for each segment in the Display label fields [2].

To select a different color for the segment label, click the Color icon [3].

For example, to compare school discipline to daily attendance rates, you could select and label three segments: No Intervention, Approaching Intervention, Assessment Required.
