hi:
I was looking at the UCB pages on how they use a survey tool in class/teacher evaluations and they do something limesurvey might do, but I don't know how to do.

UCB uses standard likert scale questions to ask students to evaluate teachers and courses. The report then provides a bar chart for each class (or group of classes) comparing the average evals reported for each question to the school average. See:


berkeley.service-now.com/kb?id=kb_articl...5200262b384aea3ee47e

I'm looking at using lime for this kind of thing here and this would be great - so, can it be done? (without external programming - obviously I can send the data to mysql and format a report that does this, but I'm asking about doing it within lime and so without anything anybody here as to maintain. )

As far as I know it is not possible to compare with earlier responses without looking in the database.

You can do this by programming with direct access to the database or by programming while using the API.

Thanks.

Post processing is a terrible option because it exposes the users to more than one piece of software, and someone here has to maintain the post-processor.

I have ( I think) found one equally terrible option: do one survey for the whole faculty, put all questions in one group, replicate for each class/instructor, and use expressions to show only the right group to each class, but compute all stats for the whole thing. I have not tried it yet because it seems pretty error prone and likely to lead to confusion when someone else gets control of it. Do you think it could work?

I think the API route leads to making a plugin -and that might make sense, but I don't want to maintain it either...

Some years ago there was a discussion about the plugin "reportico"
https://forums.limesurvey.org/forum/plugins/107717-new-plugin-reportico-sql-reports-within-limesurvey#144969

In my opinion it wasn't developed further but might be a starting point to create your own plugin.

I wanted to point out that it is not appropriate to use a 3-letter abbreviation.
You know it, but some of us volunteers may not.
I found this as an explanation of the abbreviation

That seems a custom report which summarizes after all evaluations are submitted.

We have done something like that with a custom report and a custom screen. No extra DB is needed as all info and baseline are coming from Limesurvey answers.

Thanks
