How do I compare my Vevox poll results in PPT? (Staff)

Analysis slides recall data from other slides in your presentation.  

Analysing your data without breaking the flow of your presentation is engaging and  takes seconds to set up. The ‘before and after’ question is the most commonly used  - it allows you to ask the same poll at two points in a presentation, then compare the  results on one slide in order to show knowledge retention or shifting opinions. Other  options include recalling past polls, totaling a series of polls and of course  displaying a leaderboard for a quiz. 

In other words, analysis slides take information from questions that have already  been polled and re-publish them in different ways. 

  There are four types of analysis slides: 

  • Comparison analysis 
  • Recall analysis 
  • Total analysis 
  • Leaderboard 

Warning: The analysis slides will not display the results to participant devices. The results will only be displayed within the PowerPoint presentation

1. Comparison analysis 

Use this analysis option if you want to check if your participants opinions have  changed or whether learning has taken place during your presentation. With the  Comparison analysis slide, one can compare the results of multiple questions on  a single slide.  

A common use for this type of analysis slide is also called a 'Before and After'  comparison.  If you want to ask a question at the start of the presentation and then  ask it again later in the presentation, this option allows you to display & compare the results of both polls on the same slide. 

Follow these steps to create a comparison analysis slide: 

Create an initial poll slide and duplicate this slide to run later again in your presentation for the comparison. (Use 'Control +D' on your computer as a short cut to create a duplicate slide.) Select the Add Analysis Slide option from the PowerPoint ribbon.

From the pop-up box select the 'Compare' analysis type. You can compare the results of up to 6 polls on one slide. In most instances, you will only compare two polls with each other.

In the case of a 'Before and After' scenario the Master Question would be the  initial poll you created in the presentation. Use the drop-down arrow to select the  relevant question slide.  

The 'Compare with' section is where you select the second poll you wish to  compare (in other words the duplicate question that is later in your presentation).  Use the drop-down arrow to select the relevant question. One can alter the result  labels to indicate when the question was asked. The default setting is 1st Vote on  the first slide. When comparing the second poll, the label setting will default to 2nd  Vote.  

Change the 'Slide Title' (this will be at the top of the comparison slide with both  results - slide 3). Once you have added the polls you wish to compare and altered  any labels press the Add button. 

A new comparison analysis slide will automatically be added to the presentation and  will show the layout to give an example of how the results will be displayed.  (Remember to ignore the percentages at the end, it is only for display purposes).

When you reach the comparison slide in your presentation, the comparison slide  will pull data from both the polls you selected. You will be able to see clearly see the results side by side for direct comparison.  

2. Recall analysis 

The Recall analysis slide can be used to recall the results of a previous polled question. Some situations require you to call back to a previous poll to reiterate a point or remind participants of their responses. Another common use of this feature is if you have decided to hide the results of a poll with the intention of revealing them to the audience later

To set up a recall analysis slide follow these steps: 

Select the 'Add Analysis Slide' option from the main menu in the PowerPoint ribbon. 

When the pop-up box appears, select the 'Recall' analysis type.

Under 'Master Question' select the poll you would like to recall the results from.  You can also change the 'Slide title' if you want. Then press the 'Add' button.

A duplicate slide of the question will appear in your presentation. Remember to move it to a later section in your presentation.

When you ask this question in the presentation the first time, the results will automatically be hidden. The second time the question appears in the presentation, the results will automatically be revealed.

3. Total analysis 

 The Total analysis slide can be used to add together the votes of multiple polls  into one and is used when you want to see combined results together.  

A common use for this type of analysis slide is if you are asking the same question to  different audiences, multiple times and want to sum together all the instances you  have polled the question. 

Total analysis slides are set up the same way as comparison polls using a 'Master  poll' and the polls you want to combine it with.  

When using the Total analysis slide, both polls must use the same number of choices  or voting range. 

To set up a total analysis slide follow these steps: 

Select the 'Add Analysis Slide' option from the main menu in the PowerPoint  ribbon. 

From the pop-up box select the 'Total' analysis type.

Select the first instance of the poll as the 'Master Question'. Use the drop-down  arrow to select the right question.  

The 'Combine With' section is where you select the subsequent polls you wish to  add together. You can total the results of up to 6 polls on one slide. 

Change the 'Slide Title' (this will be at the top of the comparison slide with both  results - slide 3).  

Once you have added the polls you wish to total together, press the 'Add' button.
