The greyscale bar displays the scores (in quartiles) of all institutions rated under this version of STARS that are the same basic type as the institution featured in the report (e.g., Associate, Baccalaureate, Doctoral, or Master’s). Hovering over the bar reveals the following:
- 1st quartile score (75% of institutions scored above this figure)
- Median (or 2nd quartile) score (50% of institutions scored above this figure)
- 3rd quartile score (25% of institutions scored above this figure)
- Top score
Missing lower quartiles indicate the prevalence of institutions that earned zero points, e.g., if 25% of institutions earned 0 points, no 1st quartile will display.
Missing bars indicate that an insufficient number of reports have been published under this version of STARS to calculate quartiles.
The quartiles are recalculated nightly to reflect newly published reports.
