There are many ways to view your data while analyzing on the KnowledgeHound platform. Depending on your need, you may be looking for a colorful chart, a detailed spreadsheet, or a trended line over time. To accomplish this, we have provided different data analysis views.
First, let's review how to change the view options. At the top of every analysis page will be this same header:
- View Options Dropdown: These options will apply to the current chart to view low base sizes, change the view to averages, or add data labels with stat testing
- Chart Styles Dropdown: Here are your visualization options to select the different chart types.
- Number Type Dropdown: By default we show responses in percentages but you can always switch to the response count.
Vertical Bar Chart View - By default, we will show most charts in a vertical bar chart to allow for comparisons. This option is great for quick comparisons across responses and adding breakouts and filters.
Horizontal Bar Chart View - Another visualization is the horizontal bar chart. This option is great for longer response options as there is more room to the left of the chart than below.
Trended Line View - When there is a time variable to add as a breakout (ie Quarter or Year) you can view as lines over the selected time frame for quick comparisons.
Spreadsheet View - If you are interested in viewing the data in a spreadsheet, you can select this option to view the values in a grid. This view is great for a quick look at comparisons or stat testing as it will automatically highlight significance when available.
ADDITIONAL VIEW OPTIONS
View Low Base Size - When the number of respondents within a selected response option becomes too low, we will automatically hide that bar in the chart to clean up you view. But that data didn't go away! You can still turn the visualization back on by selecting it in the legend, or using the View Low Base option to turn on all the low base options.
View Means - For questions that ask "how many times did you..." or "on a scale of 1 to 5..." you may be interested in the average score rather than the full distribution. In these types of cases (plus many others), select View Means to see the average result among the respondents.
View Data Labels - While the spreadsheet view will automatically apply stat testing when available, this option will allow you to turn on data labels and stat testing to all the additional visualization options. See the "Stat Testing" article for additional details.
Percentage View and Numerical View - This option will allow you to toggle between the percent of respondents answering a specific way or the count of respondents that answered.
