It's spring, which means it's report card time.

Coincidentally, PolitiFact in Washington has unveiled a feature that allows you to compare the PolitiFact report cards for individuals and groups we check.

PolitiFact's report cards have always been a popular feature and often generate interesting commentary. Now, you'll be able to compare the report cards more easily.

Its new comparison pages display the Truth-O-Meter tally for selected people or groups. To get more details, you can click on any single ruling and see all of that candidate's Trues, Falses, etc.

To launch the feature, PolitiFact created pages for the presidential candidates and the Republican and Democratic parties. In the next few weeks, it plans to publish additional comparisons of involving Super PACs and other groups, congressional leaders and others whose records are newsworthy. State PolitiFact outfits, including PolitiFact Texas, will be able to publish their own pages enabling readers to compare candidates for office or state leaders.
