What does "rated positively" mean, and why is it used?

The graphs and tables show the percentage of participants who reported positive experiences with a particular condition. For an experience to be considered positive, participants have to:

  • “Agree” or “Strongly Agree” with a positive statement. For example, they must agree or strongly agree with the statement: “I feel accepted in this class.”

  • “Disagree” or “Strongly Disagree” with a negative statement. For example, they must disagree or strongly disagree with the statement: “People here would be surprised if I, or someone like me, did well in this class.”

All questions are asked on 6-points scales with the options: Strongly Disagree, Disagree, Somewhat Disagree, Somewhat Agree, Agree, and Strongly Agree.
