How do I create a Matrix Key Performance Indicator for my institution?
In Elevate K-12 Analytics, you can create Matrix Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) that compare two of your Metric KPIs. After selecting two metric KPIs for comparison, you can define segments and configure a calculation matrix based upon the two metrics.
Note: You must create Metric KPIs before you can create a Matrix KPI.
Open Administration Page
In the Navigation Menu, click the Admin link.
Open Matrix KPIs
In the Manage KPIs menu, click the Matrix KPIs link .
Note: On the Manage KPIs Overview page you can click the Matrix KPIs link .
Add New Matrix KPI
Click the Add KPI button.
Select Source Metrics
In the General section, click the Horizontal Metric KPI drop-down menu . Then select a metric from the displayed list.
Then click the Vertical Metric KPI drop-down menu and select a metric .
Enter a name for the metric in the Name field .
You can also enter a description for the KPI in the Description field . For example, to better understand how school discipline counts impact daily attendance rates, select the Student Discipline Incident Count and Daily Attendance Rate metrics.
By default, a new Metric KPI is configured to display two data ranges, or segments. Segments indicate the number of numeric ranges you wish to identify and view in a Matrix KPI.
To add segments to your KPI configuration, click the Segment drop-down menu . You can select up to five segments.
Enter a label name for each segment in the Display label fields .
To select a different color for the segment label, click the Color icon .
For example, to compare school discipline to daily attendance rates, you could select and label three segments: No Intervention, Approaching Intervention, Assessment Required.
Select Color Label
In the color window, you can select a color from a palette, a spectrum, or enter the Hex number or RGB (red, green, blue) values of a color.

To enter RGB values for a color, click the Change Color Format icon . Then enter R, G, and B values .
View Matrix Table
The matrix table displays your selected metrics.
View your horizontal metric in the chart header  and its corresponding measures in the column headers .
View your vertical metric in the chart header , and its corresponding measures in the row headers .
For each metric measure comparison, click the matrix field drop-down menu . Select a segment label and color .
For example, high daily attencance compared to low (or excellent) student discipline counts do not need assessment, while below standard daily attendance compared to at risk discipline counts need assessment.
