Profile Rating Wheel: An Instrument To Evaluate School Facilities. Revised Edition.
California State Dept. of Education, Sacramento. Bureau of School Planning.
This document is designed to inform architects and school administrators of performance standards for new school construction. It can determine the worth of design proposals during the preliminary design stage and assist in evaluating existing schools. Evaluators can rate buildings against certain criteria in each of ten categories on the scale of ten points. These points are then totaled for each of ten major categories -- planning, finance, site, space, light, heat/air, sound, aesthetics, equipment, and maintenance -- and the rating for each category transferred to the wheel in the form of a dot on a graph. When the wheel graph has been marked for each category, the dots are connected and the resulting geometric shape is the building's rating. (Author)
