Measures are ways of aggregating specific data points from what you collect. They are typically numbers that are displayed in Watershed’s graphs and charts, but sometimes they can output text in certain reports. Watershed’s reporting tool Explore has a collection of default measures, and advanced users can create their own using our Measure Editor.

# Default Measures

Here is a list of default measures that come with Explore reports:

is the number of different activities contained within a grouping.*Activity Count*For instance, if you’ve organized your Correlation by person, using the Unique Activity ID Count measure would show the number of different activities each of your people have performed. If you’ve organized your Correlation by Activity Type, using the Unique Activity ID Count measure would show the number of activities that have been performed for each type.

is the average of all scores recorded across all activities in a grouping.**Average Score**For instance, if you’ve organized your Correlation by Week, using the Average Score measure would show you the average of all of the scores across all activities for each week. If you’ve organized your Correlation by Person, using the Average Score measure would show the average score across all activities for each person.

is the total amount of time people have spent performing all activities in a grouping.**Total Time**For instance, if you’ve organized your Correlation by Person, using the Total Time measure would show the amount of time each person has spent on all activities.
