Proficiency Profile Comparative Data

Performance of similar institutions in Alabama

Summary and Details

The following report include tests taken as of 6/30/2013. The following considerations should be kept in mind when interpreting comparative data:

  • This data should be considered comparative rather than normative because the institutions included in the data do not represent proportionally the various types of higher education institutions.
  • The number of students tested and sampling procedures vary from one institution to another. Therefore, it is impossible to verify that the students tested at each institution are representative of all that institution's students.

*The score distribution used to compute these statistics has been modified, to prevent the statistics from being dominated by a few very large institutions. If an institution contributed more than 4700 students to this data set, the score of each of its students has been weighted by the fraction 4700/n, where n is the number of students from that institution. For example, if an institution tested 9400 students, the score of each of its students would receive a weight of 4700/9400 = 1/2. In computing the statistics, each of its students would count only half as much as a student from an institution that tested 4700 or fewer students. Therefore, an institution testing 9400 students would influence the statistics just as much as if it had tested only 4700 students.
