Thresholds & Weights Definition
The thresholds and weights are the knobs and turns available to fine tune and adjust a school's evaluation of risk for each risk factor. They are available to ensure that the risk score is adjusted based on the use cases of schools and their programs.
Thresholds represent the upper limit of any risk factor to start counting towards the risk score. If the Attendance threshold is 90%, and a students Attendance risk factor is at 80%, then the student would have 11% of Attendance risk factor counted towards their risk score.
In an equation: 100 - MIN((Actual / threshold), 100)
Weights represent the percentage contribution of each final risk factor per student towards their risk score. The sum of weight of all available risk factors per program for each student should add up to 100% at all times. If a program has weights for Attendance, Lateness, and Checklists equal to 34%, 33%, and 33% respectively; and the students risk factor percentages for Attendance, Lateness, and Checklists are 80%, 70%, and 70% respectively; then the total risk score (assuming all thresholds are at 100%, as in no change) is 80%*34% + 70%*33% + 70%*33% = 73.4%.
