The “Percent of the Possible” or POP Score is a quantitative measurement for understanding the breadth and depth of a student body’s total levels of community involvement.  The POP Score combines each student’s rate, frequency, and depth of community engagement into one easy-to-understand score. Student’s survey responses are used to generate an individual-level POP Score for each area and overall, based on the following calculation:

Community Engagement Rate

  • Yes (1)
  • No (0)
  • Once or twice a year (1)
  • Several times a year or once a month (2)
  • Several times a month (3)
  • Weekly or more (4)
  • Participate at an event or short term drive. Usually a one-shot type involvement (1)
  • Involved on a regular basis for a period of time (2)
