What is a Scatter Report?
The Scatter report displays learner performance on a scatter plot. Choose two measures, and Watershed displays individual or group performance of those measures on an X and Y axes. It’s ideal for identifying high and low performers on measures such as KPIs, competencies, or assessment scores.
Heads Up: Some screenshots in this article show Watershed's refreshed UI which will be released January 24, 2019. Until then your actual account might look slightly different.

Creating and Editing a Scatter Report

Scatter Report Filters and Options
Beyond the typical report builder filters and options, the Scatter report provides options that are unique to the Scatter report.
When setting up a new Scatter report or configuring an existing Scatter report, click Scatter in the filter menu:
In the Scatter filter, you’ll use the different menu items to customize your report:
On the Organized menu, you’ll choose what you’d like to rank on the Scatter report. Just choose an option from the Organized menu and each dot on the Scatter report will be you’ve chosen.
On the Measures menu, you’ll choose how you’d like to rank what you chose in the Organized menu. You must choose exactly 2 measures for a Scatter report. The first measure is charted on the x-axis and the second measure is charted on the y-axis.
Related: What are Measures?
To add a measure to the Scatter report, choose a measure from the Select a Measure menu and click the Add Measure button next to the menu. The first measure you select will added to the x-axis and the second measure selected will be added to the y-axis. To deselect a measure and remove it from the Scatter report, click the X next to the measure in the Measures section.
Advanced configuration is designed to be used by expert users who understand JSON and the properties of xAPI statements.
Certain settings are unique to the Scatter report (like displaying the colored quadrants seen in the above examples) and only configurable in Advanced Configuration.
If true, will show a quadrants background image. The bottom boundaries of the A quadrant are the benchmarks defined for each measure, or the average value for measures with no benchmarks defined. The A+ quadrant within the A quadrant is always half way between the bottom boundary of the A quadrant and the chart maximum.
