- Each student group is represented in a tile. The control group has a 1 to 1 ratio. All other student groups are compared against the control group to help identify the degree of disproportionality in incidents reported.
- Each group is also represented in the bar chart to visually display the risk.
- A table displays to the right to break down each level of risk.
- Select Edit Calculation to update the criteria for the comparison.
Risk is calculated based on the total number of students rather than the total number of incidents for the students.
The higher the number for a student group, the higher the risk as it relates to the control group.
