As many users have noticed, the presentation of Results from text and numeric questions has changed recently. The new format enhances your ability to instantly interpret a large group’s response to these question types.
As before, the “Results – By Participant” tab provides raw data for every participant and each question, in the form of a table. The cells in the table contain the text or numeric ‘strings” submitted by the participant(s), along with the assessed result.
Until now, the aggregated view of this data simply displayed a stream of response strings. There was no aggregation of similar responses (although we did mark those which were assessed as “correct” in a different color).
Now, the “Results – By Question” tab on your Results page provides an improved analysis of how the group responded to a text or numeric question. A frequency bar chart indicates the most frequently submitted “strings”, clustered by “assessment term” where available. This allows interpretation at a glance of the most common errors being made in submissions.
For open text response questions, the option to view the group’s result as a wordcloud remains available. However, the frequency with which responded used a “correct” term will be aggregated, and “incorrect” terms similarly have their respective frequencies of use indicated.
