- Sum - Ignore Period: Adds all data entries ever stored
- Sum - Difference: Takes the total of data entries for this score period and subtracts the total of the previous period
- Latest: The most recent data entry within the period
- Latest - Ignore Period: Takes the most recent data entry ever
- Latest - Difference: Takes the difference between the most recent data entry of this period and the last data entry of the previous period
- Lowest Score in Period: Takes the lowest data entry in period (Min)
- Highest Score in Period: Takes the highest data entry in the period (Max)
