Learn how to track the participation rates for your studies.
Researchers can keep track of the participation rate both at the study and the survey level.
List of study participants The list can be accessed through the Summary page, by clicking the number at the bottom of the study card. There the researcher can see the list of the participants, their consent status e.g. active, revoked, and see the date when the consent to participate was provided.
List of survey participants To view the list of survey participants, the researcher can open the summary page and select the study of interest. Within the study summary researcher can see the number of participants for each survey. By clicking on the participant amount researcher can access the full list of participants and their survey submission time.
Downloading results Within the study page, researchers can export the results of each survey. Export options can be viewed by clicking on the three dots on the Download results button. Such options include: - Latest answers of all participants in Excel format - Latest answers of all participants in JSON format - All answers in Excel format - Statistical overview in Excel format
Latest answers of all participants This Excel file provides researchers with an export of the most recent responses of all participants which is an important feature to use if the researcher asks the participants to resubmit data within a certain interval (e.g. once every two months). Each response is assigned a number, which can be seen in the first column of the Excel spreadsheet. The names of the questions are displayed in the first row of the spreadsheet. The timestamp of the response is also available in the file.
All answers This file has the same structure and content as the one described above. In addition, it provides researchers with an export of all responses. For example, if one of the participants has completed the same survey multiple times, the file would contain all of the responses, and each of those responses would be assigned their own number and will be seen in a separate row.
Statistical overview By downloading this export the researcher receives an Excel spreadsheet with a statistical summary of the responses - how many respondents answered in a certain way to a question (e.g. how many stated that they are male, and how many stated female). In this spreadsheet, the questions are listed in the first row and the responses in the first column.
It is important to label your questions and responses thoroughly in the Survey builder, to make it easier for You to use the exported data!
JSON Researchers can also export data in JSON format which is a format that allows storing data in readable text format that can be easily generated and processed by various systems.
Such a format not only allows researchers to process data in various statistical tools but also makes it easy to showcase the metadata (statistical information) in Curator - a platform created by Longenesis to help researchers visualize their data and engage in collaborations with other researchers and stakeholders.
