Configurable results

The results of a Matrix Text are configurable to help you focus on different aspects of performance.

Color scale

The color scale can be based on:

  • None - No colors will be used to distinguish cell values.
  • Overall - Color will be based on the scores on in all cells, regardless of the script or device.
  • Per Script - Color will be used to distinguish results in different scripts.
  • Per Device - Color will be used to distinguish results from different devices.

MITE uses color gradation to indicate the range of cell values from lowest to highest.
