About Highest / Lowest Tables
Highest / Lowest tables show anywhere from the 1-10 highest and lowest scores that a subject received in a scoring category, or an item within a scoring category.
There are three different variations of the Highest/Lowest table.
In this version, instead of comparing scores of broader scoring categories, the table displays the performance on questions that make up the scoring categories.
Note that a column appears for the larger category in addition to the specific item.
This version shows scores on the larger category level.
In this version, you decide on one broader scoring category you are interested in. The table then displays all participants in the study and ranks them based on how they scored in that category.
For general Table Options and customization, see the Tables Overview page.
Highest/Lowest tables have a number of unique options. Navigate to Table Options to view them.
- Show Highest Scores: Choose the number of highest scores you want to display.
- Show Lowest Scores: Choose the number of lowest scores you want to display.
- Included Categories: Choose which scoring categories to include in the table. Included categories have a check mark next to them.
- Include Reverse Coded Items: Reverse-coded items are items that follow the reverse of the traditional scale. A scoring category might have a mixture of ascending and descending scales. For example, a question scored from 5 to 1 instead of from 1 to 5 is considered reverse-coded. If Include Reserves Coded Items is deselected, reverse coded items are completely ignored, instead of being taken into account with how scores are calculated and displayed.
- Show Ties: If a subject received the same mean score for multiple items, then include every item that tied. This setting will override the numbers set by Show Highest/Lowest Scores.
