Catalyst uses a Net Promoter Score (NPS) to evaluate member survey responses. NPS is calculated by subtracting the total weight of the lowest six ratings from the two highest ratings categories. This approach is designed to convey the percent of respondents who are not just highly satisfied, but who would be most likely to go out of their way to recommend Catalyst to their peers.
