Definition: A scorecard is a report that summarizes the status on key performance indicators.

What This Means: Decision makers can quickly see current status and meaningful comparisons represented at a high level. Business scorecards report indicators across a variety of agency areas. There is typically no consolidation across those areas into a single performance index such as AYP. In education scorecard applications, the key performance indicators, if presented in a web-browser format, can be selected to drill down to a finer level of detail, possibly even to an individual’s performance level.

Scorecards represent a level of forethought as do leading and lagging/trailing indicators that inform action. Like traditional statistical reports, scorecards are intended to display significant annual and other static measures. Unlike traditional statistical reports, scorecards are also intended to be accessed frequently to monitor changes in formative, leading indicators.
