Questions report

The Questions report allows the analysis of all rating scale questions in one place. Questions are grouped into sub-reports based on the rating scale used (e.g. Agree-Disagree, Yes-No) and displays the average score with the ability to toggle to view a breakdown of responses that make up the score.

Demographic filters can be applied to analyse questions at a demographic level.

Questions that have free-text comments enabled will display a speech bubble showing the number of comments.  Clicking this speech bubble will take you through to the Text Analysis report.

NOTE: Free-text only questions can be found under Text Analysis.


The Agree-Disagree report shows all the AskYourTeam recommended questions and custom questions that use the Agree-Disagree rating scale. Analyse these questions by category score, average question score, and the question response breakdown.

You can also see a consolidated average for Agree-Disagree questions. For this, you can choose to include or exclude your custom Agree-Disagree questions to contribute to the consolidated average.

Use the toggle to see the Validated average or Overall average. Validated average is contributed by only AskYourTeam Agree-Disagree validated questions. Overall average is contributed by all Agree-Disagree questions.

Analyse by category

By default, the Agree-Disagree report will group questions into Categories where there is more than one question.

Each category is displayed as an average score with a range line indicating the spread of question scores within each category.

Hover over the line to read highest and lowest scores and click the category to expand the questions that make up each category.

NOTE: Custom questions that were added to the survey with no category assigned will be grouped under the category 'Custom'.

Learn more about what categories are and how to analyse these here.

Analyse by question

When looking at the Questions view, Agree-Disagree questions can be analysed by the average score as a bar chart or the breakdown as a 100% stacked-bar chart.


By default, the chart will show the average score for the question.  Sort by any of the column headings to change the order of the report.


Each question score is made up of the responses that participants have selected which can be seen on the Breakdown chart.

To view the breakdown of responses, select the Breakdown toggle. Hover over each of the response types to see the percentage and number of people that selected that option.

Create a stacked bar chart by selecting the response type on the chart legend. This will highlight the selected response options and fade out the rest of the chart. Click it again to deselect it.

When looking at the breakdown chart it is important to take note of any questions that have 'Don't Know' responses. If many participants have selected 'Don't Know' you may like to review this question or edit the question explanation for future surveys.

Top 10 bottom 10

If more than 21 Agree-Disagree questions have been included to the survey, a toggle is available to switch between viewing all questions or just the top and bottom 10 questions based on Average score.

Demographic spread

The demographic spread allows you to view responses to a specific question broken down by demographic.

It can only be generated if you:

  • captured demographic information for your survey, and

  • used Agree-Disagree scale questions.

To view the demographic spread for a specific question:

  1. Select the Questions report.

  2. Select the Agree-Disagree question type.

  3. Toggle to the Questions tab.

  4. Select a specific question.

Hover over bubbles on the chart to explore how different groups of people within a demographic responded. For example, if you selected the 'Age' demographic you could view the general response for 26 to 35 year olds.

When you've finished viewing the demographic spread, select the question again to hide it.


The 0-10 report displays results with a bar chart and a 100% stacked-bar chart illustrating the breakdown of responses. 


By default, the chart will show the average score for the question. Sort by any of the column headings to change the order of the report.


Each question score is made up of the responses that participants have selected which can be seen on the Breakdown chart.

To view the breakdown of responses, select the Breakdown toggle.

Hover over each of the response types to see the percentage and number of people that selected that option.


The Yes-No report is a 100% stacked-bar chart that shows the breakdown of the responses between Yes and No. 

Hover over the chart to see the percentage and number of people that selected Yes or No.

NOTE: Two neutral colours have been used on the Yes-No report. Yes or No can be either positive or negative depending on the question. 


This report shows all multi-choice type questions. Each question shows the breakdown for each response option.

There are two types of multi-choice question. Single answer questions, the most common type, ask participants to pick just one choice from a predetermined list. Multiple answer questions let the respondent choose more than one option. 

For multiple answer questions a message will appear at the top of the response option column "(Multiple answers allowed)"

Toggle between the Percent or Count that participants selected.

How is the percentage score calculated?

We get asked this often, particularly for multi-answer questions. The percent score for both single and multiple answer questions is the same. Divide the count of responses for an option by the total number of people that completed the question.

For single answer questions, the total percentage column will sum to 100%. For multiple answer questions, the total percentage will be much higher than 100% because we double-count participants who selected two answers, and triple-count those who selected three, and so on.

We calculate it this way to show how many people selected an option, rather than how popular an option is within its list. The difference is nuanced, but the distinction can be important. 

For example, the following table shows 100 people's responses to the question "What's your favourite pizza toppings"?

Favourite Pizza Topping            


   % of people    

  % of responses  





















From these results, we can predict that "80% of my team like Pepperoni as a pizza topping". This is more helpful for typical AskYourTeam scenario's. 


Why does the percentage not add up to 100%

When viewing multi-choice questions, the percentages are rounded when calculated so these will not always add up to 100%. You can change the view to show the "Count" of people that selected an option.

If 800 people took a survey and 2 people selected an option, this would show 0% as the percentage isn't high enough to register a whole number.
