Improvements to Assessment Generator

We love to hear from our users and over the past few months you’ve given us some great ideas for enhancements to Assessment Generator. We’ve been hard at work turning those ideas into reality, and we’re ready to show off the results.

Here are four great new features that we’ve rolled out recently:

Radar Charts in Assessment Results

For type-based assessments (assessments that score users in multiple categories), you can now graph your user’s scores using a Radar chart in addition to Pie and Bar charts.

Radar Chart
Radar charts clearly show areas of strength and weakness

The radar chart shows the maximum possible scores for each category, in addition to the user’s score. In the example above, it’s easy to see that the user scored well in the “Technology Readiness” type, but needs to work on “Business Readiness.”

To change your type-based assessment to use a radar chart, log into Assessment Generator and find your assessment. Click Edit Assessment from the Actions dropdown menu.

Next, scroll to the bottom of the page and click “Edit Results.” Find the field titled “Choose the Type of Chart to Show Your User” under On Screen Results and select “Radar” in the dropdown menu.

Redirect to a URL Based on Score

Segmenting your leads and targeting your marketing efforts can make a big impact. Targeted marketing lets you speak to your prospects’ unique needs and concerns.

With an Assessment Generator advanced or private label account, you can now redirect your visitors to any URL based on the score they receive on your assessment. To set up this feature, click Edit Scoring in the actions menu for a simple assessment, or Edit Types for a type-based assessment.

Click Edit for a score band or type. On the next screen, click the checkbox Redirect to URL and enter the URL in the Final URL Destination field.

Create pages on your site based possible outcomes of your assessment and send your visitors to the content that will help them the most.

Duplicate Question

It can be time consuming and tedious to create assessments with many questions. To help make the process easier, we’ve added the ability to duplicate a question. In the list of questions, click Duplicate in the Actions column for a question.

This will make an exact duplicate of the question below the original copy. You can then edit it to make it unique. In the case of an options question, all of the answers you have created will also be duplicated. The order of your answers will be maintained in the new copy of the question.

CSV Download

Many of our customers download the results for their assessments in CSV format for analysis in a spreadsheet program. We’ve recently added the numeric score value of each answer in addition to the text value. In other words, since a Yes answer to a Yes / No question receives a value of 1, the value 1 is shown in the CSV file along with ‘Yes.’

This allows you to perform detailed analyses of users who answered specific questions in specific ways.

To download your assessment results, click View results in the Actions menu for an assessment. Click the Export to CSV button and the file will be downloaded to your computer. Open the CSV file in any spreadsheet program such as Microsoft Excel or Google Sheets.
