Results screen

The results screen provides a table of results of completed studies and incomplete studies. The participant id is a unique, non-identifying id and time submitted is the local time of submission on the participant's device.

NOTE: Results can only be downloaded by users with active subscriptions. Users with trial accounts can view results and test the various download formats by using the "Preview study" button.

Partial results

Results are updated and stored at each step during a study so partial results are still available to download and analyze (Figure 1) even if a participant abandons a study before completion. Partial results may indeed still be complete, in cases where a participant leaves and/or abandons a study before completing all the steps in that study (e.g. they close the browser before the last step which might be a "thankyou" screen or credit questionnaire). Higher than usual non-completions for a given study may indicate a problem with that study, thus, having the ability to analyze partial results in such a case is handy.

Wide output format

A trial can contain 1 or more procedures. Trials headers contain suffixes indicating their trial number and procedure number respectively. For example, a start time header for the first trial in a set might look like so:

  • start_1_1 (trial 1, procedure 1)
  • start_1_2 (trial 1, procedure 2)
  • ...
  • start_1_n (trial 1, procedure n)

For questionnaires, the answer value and answer code are recorded for every question and answer in the questionnaire. These items can be determined by the suffix applied to each item in the header row of the file (_value and _code respectively).

For example: What languages can you speak?_value and What languages can you speak?_code.
