Group Summary Printout (#2 of 2)
.  The group summary printout shows both composite and item scores. On the sample "Parents of All Students" printout below, parents gave their highest composite rating (PPR=96) to discipline in the school and their lowest composite rating (PPR=82) to their children's academic progress. Parents gave their most positive rating (PPR=99) to #7 (important to obey rules). Parents tied two items for their least positive rating (PPR=78). They were #9 (belongings safe at school) and #29 (writing progress OK).
