"Effectiveness" Evaluation: average (mean) evaluation for the Overall Effectiveness question, normalized to 100. For example, on UW evaluations 'Excellent' is weighted 5 (100/00) and 'Very Poor' is weighted 1 (20/100). Similarly, on a 5-point Likert scale 'Strongly Agree' is 5 and 'Strongly Disagree' is 1.
