History

The History view compares the current ratings for each category with ratings from the previous three years or four quarters.

Ratings that have declined are highlighted in red and display negative numbers. Ratings that have improved are highlighted in green with positive numbers. Arrow icons beside the values in the Diff column indicate the trend of the current assessment against the previous assessment.
  • 3 Years: To calculate the current ratings, the system averages the ratings from the trailing twelve month (TTM) period. The Diff column shows the discrepancy between the current ratings and the previous calendar year's ratings.

  • 4 Quarters: Quarterly assessments compare the average rating for each category in the current quarter against the average ratings from the previous four quarters. The Diff column shows the discrepancy between the current ratings and the previous quarter's ratings. The column labels count backward, by quarter from the current quarter. For example, if the current quarter is the 3rd quarter of 2013, then the previous quarters appear as 2nd [2013], 1st [2013], 4th [2012], and 3rd [2012]. All four of the previous quarters appear, whether or not there was any data for those quarters.
