List of ranked alternatives
- Click on "ranked alternatives" in the menu on the left to access this page.

- If you change the criteria or category of an alternative, click on "update" at the top to refresh this list and update the alternative rankings based on your new changes
Comparing ranked alternatives
- On the ranked alternatives page, select whichever alternatives you wish to compare, and click the "compare" button above the table.
- Radar chart
- Use this to see how each alternative performs on each criterion
- Select "show hypothetically best possible alternative" to compare your best possible alternative to the other alternatives on the chart
- Click on any alternative below the chart to remove it from the display
- Disaggregated scores
- Shows you the total scores of the alternatives you're comparing and breaks down this score into how the alternatives performed on each criterion.
- This makes it easier to compare the performance on each criterion and the overall scores with each other.
- Performance on individual attributes
- Use this to easily compare alternative performances on individual criteria to each other
- This chart focuses more on individual criteria than the radar chart or disaggregated score
- Also lists your costs and other considerations, but these are better analyzed on the alternative selection page.
- Tornado chart
- Use this to see how the alternatives you’re comparing would score differently if the rating on a given criterion were higher or lower by one level
- Useful for seeing the impact of having miscategorized an alternative, or to see what criterion you should focus on to create the largest improvement in an alternative's score
