Scattergrams show historical admissions decision using GPAs and SAT/ACT scores of students who graduated from your high school before you. Scattergrams are meant to provide a guidepost to gauge likelihood of acceptance. Remember, they are not intended to predict admission results.
A student will only be plotted as a data point on the scattergram if they have a GPA and an ACT or SAT score in their profile. This may affect students without test scores who apply completely test-optional.
