Quality Control Changes for GLOBE Data Metrics and Honor Rolls
GLOBE recently implemented quality control improvements that will help ensure that data associated with a school are counted properly (and only once), and that data of one type is equally counted when compared to data of the same type with other schools.
Depending on the type of data a school collected, the number of measurements being reported for Metrics and Honor Roll may have changed for that school compared to what was displayed prior to this summer.
Rest assured that all of the data that was collected is still within the database. No data is being deleted by the system. Only improvements to the algorithm for processing the data have changed, and the results from the processed data are what count for the Honor Roll and Metrics, and on the visualization system.
