Creating the Report Card

How We Came Up with the Grades

TEA reviewed City Council meetings starting in January 2011 and identified 31 key votes on issues that had an important impact on the environment.
We gave each Council member one point every time they voted for the environment.
We added up each Council member’s points and divided the total by the number of votes they were present for.
This gave us a percentage which we converted into a letter grade.

Please go to Report Card Details (google doc)
for a spreadsheet of all the data that determined the grades:
-the votes used
-links to the City Council voting records
-how Councillors voted.

To see a list of the votes, dates and topics, go to Key Votes (PDF).
