    Is there a way to create an algorithm that will supply the percentages for the types of responses given for each question?

    Asked by Sean Lloyd on June 09, 2016 at 04:32 PM

    My school account has a 34 question survey that uses a Likert scale to capture data.  It is useful for us to know what percent of each response was given for each question. 

     

    The raw numbers of responses for each question is also quite useful.  At that point the percentages could also be developed from there.
