Pretty self-explanatory; ‘your question’ is the main question you want to ask your audience.
This can be a question that invokes an answer on a scale of 1-5, such as the question ‘how satisfied are you with our service?’, with 1 being very dissatisfied and 5 being very satisfied. Alternatively, this can also be a statement, such as a statement ‘My experience of this service was highly satisfactory’, with the scale measuring strong disagreement (1) to strong agreement (5).
If you feel like your statement needs clarifying, you can also choose to ‘add a longer description’. The description will be shown underneath the question on audience members’ devices.
‘Statements’ are the specific parts of a broad question that you want an answer to.
For example, if you ask the broad question ‘how satisfied are you with our service?’, you might want responses to specific parts of the service that your audience were either satisfied or dissatisfied about. In this case, you can add up to 8 statements for different aspects of service, such as ‘ease of use’, ‘friendliness of staff’, ‘speed of delivery' etc.
Note: If your broad question is your statement, and you don’t require the statement field at all, you can delete all statement boxes. This centralises the layout and means that your audience will only respond to the one question at the top.
The ‘scale’ section deals with the wording and number of your scale’s values.
These values are typically from 1 to 5. In our ‘how satisfied are you with our service?’ example, 1 represents very dissatisfied and 5 represents very satisfied. You can attach specific wording to all values in between the two extremes to help your audience make a more informed and accurate decision on their opinions. The wording for the values will not appear on your desktop display, but they will appear on your audience’s devices (providing that the difference between the lowest value and highest value is not more than 10).
The standard scale slide on AhaSlides comes with 5 values, but you can increase this to any number you want (below 1000) if you want a more refined answer.
The low label and the high label are the lowest and highest values respectively, both of which will appear at either end of the scale on your display.
There are 5 ‘other settings’ on an AhaSlides scale slide that you can choose to check on or off:
Once you receive response data, it will look something like this:
The graph shows all responses across all statements. All the data is colour-coded with your statements so that you see exactly how audience members responded to each statement.
You can see the average performance for each statement in the colour-coded circles at the bottom of the graph. Remember to turn on ‘show the average line for all statements’ in ‘other settings’ to see the average performance of all statements combined, which is displayed in a white circle below the other averages.
If you hover your mouse over each circle, you can see how many responses each value got. For example, I hover my mouse over a point like in the image below, I can see that for value #3 (‘neither dissatisfied nor satisfied’), there was 1 response for the customer service statement and 1 response for the ease of use statement.
You can also hover your mouse over the statements on the right, or the circle averages at the bottom, to get an isolated view of how each statement fared in the response data.
