Plotting multiple series in a line chart

This is perhaps really simple but I'm stuck.  I have a table like the following

 

Year / Gender /  SchoolID / Class / Final Mark

 

I want to build a line chart like the below, where I could compare Boys with School A.  This seems like it would be simple to do but I can't figure it out.  Every time I put an additional dimension in it gives me a hierarchy (Boys from School A, Girls from School A, etc).  I want each dimension to be independent.  Thanks for the help!

Hi @michaelccdf,

 

If I understand you correctly, an alternative solution could be that creating 5 measures to calculate the average of final mark separately for (Boys, SchoolA, etc), then show all 5 measures as Values, and the Year column as Axis on the line chart to get the expected result in your scenario.

 

The formulas below are for your reference. Smiley Happy

Boys = CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( 'Table1'[Final Mark] ), 'Table1'[Gender] = "Boy" )
Girl = CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( 'Table1'[Final Mark] ), 'Table1'[Gender] = "Girl" )
SchoolA = CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( 'Table1'[Final Mark] ), 'Table1'[SchoolID] = "SchoolA" )
SchoolB = CALCULATE ( AVERAGE ( 'Table1'[Final Mark] ), 'Table1'[SchoolID] = "SchoolB" )
Everyone = AVERAGE ( 'Table1'[Final Mark] )

 

Regards

Thanks so much, this did the trick!
