The scoring algorithms document contains important information about how your responses to each section of the Survey are scored and publicly reported. The document includes cut-points for process and outcome measures, as well as scoring details and criteria for each of Leapfrog's performance categories (e.g., Fully Meets the Standard, Substantial Progress, Some Progress, Willing to Report, etc.). The 2018 Scoring Algorithms document also now includes the scoring criteria for the CPOE Evaluation Tool, which can be found starting on page 27 in Appendix I.
