Report Builder


The "Report builder" page allows you to create flexible and unique reports by applying advanced search filters to obtain a detailed insight into test/survey statistics. Moreover, it enables the efficient comparison of tests/surveys and analysis of individual test/survey items.

  1. Accessing the page

    To access the "Report builder" page, click the "Reporting" option in the main menu, and select "Report builder."

    You will be redirected to a new page where you can:

    1. Click the "Tests" button to see the list of tests you can create the report for.
    2. Click the "Surveys" button to see the list of surveys you can create the report for.
    3. Select the test or survey from the table.
  2. Page layout

    To preview the report for the selected test/survey, you can:

    1. Load the existing report template.
    2. Create a new custom report by selecting options from the list. Each selected option will be featured as a column in the report table.
    Advanced search

    The advanced search allows you to build structured queries. The simple filter displays the results according to the chosen column, criteria, and value. The group filter represents conjunction (AND) or disjunction (OR) of more filters. Negation can be applied to any filter. For example, the query from the picture above will produce the report which will include all test/survey attempts taken between 1st and 30th November 2019, having scores not less than 32.50% (greater or equal than 32.50%) and whose takers either have the first name Ford or are born after 30th March 1984.

    To see only suspended test attempts, follow these steps:

    1. Set these values for the query.
    2. Click on the “Display report” button.

    Now you can see only suspended test attempts.

    Section group
    1. This option is available only for tests with sections. You can see the aggregated results for multiple sections by creating a section group. To create a new section group, click the Add section group button. Enter the group's unique name and choose the sections you want to see the aggregated results for. For every section group, you can select a grading scale to calculate its grade.
    2. You can save the report settings as a new report template or update the existing report template. To do so, click the "Save as..." button.

      Note: Only columns will be saved, excluding the advanced search (queries).

    3. Click the "New report template" to save the report settings as a new template. Enter the name of the template in a dialog box. To confirm the input, click the "Save" button or discard it by clicking the "Cancel" button.
    4. Click the "Existing report template" to save the report settings to the existing report template. Choose the desired report template you want to update in the dialog box. If the selected template is already loaded (see 1. step), that template will be chosen by the default. You can change the name of the selected template by editing the "Name" field. To confirm the input, click the "Save" button or close the dialog by clicking the "Cancel" button.
    5. After you configure the report settings, click the "Display report" button to see the report you have made.
