Reporting & Analysis

The Quiz and Survey Master Reporting And Analysis addon allows you to analyze your quiz/survey results using a variety of Charts & Graphs. It allows you to filter data with quiz/survey creation dates, usernames, and categories. You can setup custom charts for each question or view results from all the questions of a quiz/survey, the addon remembers the custom charts you’ve set up and fetches data the next time you visit the page.

You can even show the Quiz/Survey results in the form of a Pie Chart with their % to the users after they submit the Quiz/Survey. And many more useful features.
