Custom Assessment Results

Results from a Custom Assessment are displayed after a Thinker casts a vote. The results are instantaneous, and results are continuously updated as other Thinkers in the Session cast their votes. Each tab displays the results for one voting criteria column. You can also create additional tabs to add new views that reflect Total, Product, or Heat Map views that are described below.

VOTE RESULTS SCREEN - FEATURES AND FUNCTIONALITY

  • The default view of the Vote Results screen displays both a table and graphical representation of the vote results.
  • The table displays voting results for the selected voting criteria column. The default view combines a table view on top with a graphical chart view on the bottom.
  • Each tab represents one voting criteria column from the ballot. Select a tab to navigate to the voting results of another voting criteria column.
  • The Create View  icon to the right of the last tab enables you to create new views including the Total, Product, and Heat Map views. When you create new views, they are added as tabs across the top.
  • Each ballot item is displayed as a bar in the chart, and each bar displays the average of Thinker votes. The bar colors correspond to the column color in the ballot.

  • The Back to Ballot  button returns Thinkers to the ballot in case they need to make changes. 
  • The bottom right green Ballots progress bar displays the number of Thinkers who voted and the total number of voters.

If desired, you can display only a graphical chart view of the voting results. From the Activity toolbar, click on the View Chart Only  icon.

  • Each ballot item is displayed as a bar in the chart and each shows the average of Thinker votes. The color of the bars corresponds to the column's color in the ballot.

  • The +/- column provides the standard deviation as a percentage of the average. Higher percentages indicate more disagreement or higher variation in the scores received.

  • The green Ballots progress bar on the lower right displays the number of Thinkers who voted and the total number of Thinkers.

The Total View adds all or selected columns together.

To create a new total view:

  1. Click on the Create View  drop-down menu.

  1. Select Total. The Create New Total View dialog opens.

  1. The check marks indicate the columns used in the total display. Click on a check box to remove a column from the display.
  2. Enter a Weight, which emphasizes columns in reference to each other. The default value is 1, so all columns are weighted the same relative to each other. Numbers greater than 1 gives that column more weight or value relative to other columns. A negative number gives the column less weight or value relative to other columns.
  3. Click on the Add View button to add the Total tab to the view.

  • The gray gear icon opens the View Options for Total window. This window has all of the same options as the Create New Total window and it enables users to change weights or included columns on the existing view.
  • The table lists each column and the average scores for that ballot item.
  • The Total column provides the total of the columns for each ballot item.
  • Each ballot item has a bar in the chart. The colors correspond to the column, and hovering over a bar gives the value of that column for that ballot item.

Entering a number larger than 1 assigns that column more weight or larger values relative to other columns. A negative number will give the column negative values relative to other columns.
  3. Select the Add View button to save your changes, and the Product tab is added to the view.

  • The Product Column is displayed last and gives the product of the included columns for each ballot item.
  • Each ballot item is displayed as a point on the chart. Hovering over a bar gives the product of the two columns for that ballot item.

After you have created a new view, you can modify what criteria are shown in the tab, change weights of ballot items, or change the view name.

To modify criteria in a Total, Product, or Heat Map view:

  3. Make the necessary changes, such as the selected columns or weights of each, and select Save.

Note: If a column is deleted from the ballot, any specialized views containing that column will also be removed.

This scenario applies when a Leader Magnets participants to the Custom Assessment Results view, and subsequently runs a report. Reports are generated in the order in which items are displayed in the Custom Assessment view when the Magnet is pressed.
