    This section displays a variety of views of the retrieved data, including how text entry rate varies with interface, diagnosis, or body site, where applicable. Note: These graphs combine data from the individual cases and groups, so they reflect all of the retrieved data.

    Text Entry Rate by Interface. Shows average for each interface in the retrieved dataset.

    Everyone in this dataset used cursor OSK, so we won't show a graph. The average text entry rate is 2.02 wpm, across all cases and groups.

    Text Entry Rate by Diagnosis. Shows average for each diagnosis in the retrieved dataset.

    Every case in this dataset has a diagnosis of cerebral palsy, so we won't show a graph. The average text entry rate is 2.02 wpm, across all cases and groups.

    Text Entry Rate by Body Site. Shows average for each body site in the retrieved dataset.

  • Individual Data. Each row is a case for a single subject in the dataset.
