Characterization of performance types and identification of educational disadvantage

Can educational disadvantage for students be explored using relevant background characteristics?


Is there a relationship between missing values in the background variables and performance profiles?

Missing value plot, spineplot


Can homogeneous groups of students be identified with similar performance patterns within the performance profiles?

Parallel coordinate plot


Can misallocations to the performance profiles be identified?

Parallel box plot

Relative performance strengths and weaknesses

Can relative performance strengths and weaknesses be identified for individual students?

Histograms, parallel coordinate plot

Comparison of domains and performance profiles

Can differences between the domains and performance profiles be identified regarding relevant background characteristics?

Trellis plot
