The "Discipline Rates by Year" chart breaks down the discipline
rate for various student groups at each campus by the six-week
reporting period for the given fiscal year. The chart displays the
percentage of discipline incidents1,3 per group for the
six weeks while tooltip data shows the overall factor2 of
discipline rates4 for the group.
Additionally, the chart ceiling can be modified to values other
than the default value of 100% for clarity. Clicking on the group
in the chart legend will also show or hide that group from the
Discipline incidents are counted if the resulting corrective
action taken results in missed class time for the student.
The overall factor of discipline rates for a group represents
the difference between the discipline rate for all students
and the specified student group's discipline rate.
Incident rate percentages are calculated by dividing the
number of discipline incidents that occurred in a given
six weeks divided by the number of students enrolled at any
point in time during the same six weeks.
Example: 10 discipline incidents occurred in a group of 200
students during the six weeks. This results in a 5% discipline rate.
The incidents could be caused by:
● 10 students, each with 1 discipline incident
● 5 students, each with 2 discipline incidents
● 1 student with 10 discipline incidents
● Any other combination that adds up to 10 incidents
Note that the rates are based on the number of discipline
incidents, not the number of students with a discipline incident.
This means that the incident rate for a student group with a small
number of students is influenced to a greater degree by the
repeated actions of individual students than a student group with
a large number of students.
Example: During a given six weeks only 2 students, student A and
student B, caused discipline incidents. Each student had 5
● Student A is in group 1. This group contains 100
students resulting in a 5% incident rate.
● Student B is in group 2. This group contains 20
students resulting in a 25% incident rate.
So, even though students A and B have the same number of
incidents, the incident rate for group 2 is higher since group 2
has fewer students than group 1.
