GTPQ / OTPQ Report Components: Descriptions and Examples
Executive Summary Charts
The Executive Summary charts, which show the team’s results on each of the dimensions, highlight the key issues on the team. The Executive Summary barchart includes the team average and team standard deviation (SD) for each dimension, and the overall team average and SD for the core questions is also shown. If this is a Long Report, you also have the option to include Comparison Data. If this is a second iteration or higher, you may choose to include dimension averages from previous iterations. If this is a second iteration or higher in a Long Report, you may choose to include a line chart which shows how the team overall average for all questions has changed over time (This is noted as “#Include Team Average for each question – previous iteration(s)” in the Generate Report options list).
Below are some examples of Executive Summary Charts:
Executive Summary Narrative
The Executive Summary Narrative is written by the Facilitator or Administrator after reviewing and analyzing the rest of the report and all the data. Ideally it should consist of three or four paragraphs that highlight the key successes, challenges and opportunities for the team.
Quadrant Chart (in the report this page is called Diagnosis and is accompanied by an explanatory page called Diagnosis Descriptions).
Individual Question Results
The team average and standard deviation (SD) are displayed for each individual quantitative question. If this is a Long Report, you also have the option to include Comparison Data. If this is a second iteration or higher, you may choose to include question averages from previous iterations.
Here is a first iteration sample:
In the online version of the individual question results, it is possible to sort the questions by Question (default), by SD, and by Average by clicking on the headings at the top of the columns. The printed results are always sorted in the default order by Question.
Here is a second iteration sample with Comparison Data:
The spidergrams are an excellent diagnostic tool and can serve as a starting point for discussion and analysis in an intervention. The spidergrams are useful in that they clearly indicate how much agreement or disparity there is among individual team members, i.e., to what extent do each of the team members see things the same way? The following charts show examples of positive agreement, negative agreement, and disagreement.
Team Comments for each question and Qualitative Questions
The comments for each question as well as the responses to the Qualitative Questions can help to illuminate the answers given to the quantitative questions. They can provide explanations for why the quantitative questions were answered they way they were, and often the contradictions can be as illuminating as the observations and rationales. Whether there is agreement or disagreement about a result, the reasons for this may vary, and the comments can help to provide insight and focus as you are analyzing the results and planning an intervention or feedback session.
The spidergrams and comments for each question are presented together. Here is a sample:
The Qualitative Questions are presented at the end of the report, after all the individual spidergrams. Here is a sample:
