Graphing the survey data[edit]

Thanks to Yuri, we have Extension:Graph that can draw graphs of numbers!

For grins, I took the first question's numbers, fiddled around in the editor for the Graph extension's underlying data format Vega until something showed up, and stuck them in a <graph> tag, below. Edit this wiki page to see the markup.

  • I couldn't figure out how to add legends/markers for the x values ("Very satisfied"... "Neither satisfied nor dissatisfied"...).
  • Rachel's original tables had percentages next to each number (19 - 30%, 40 - 63%, ...), can Vega transforms compute the percentages? I think Vega can show the other number on hover.
    • Should scale the y axis to either 100% or the total number of responses.
  • Maybe a pie chart is better, I couldn't figure that out.
  • Or keep bar chart and there's probably a way to put several questions with the same x values on one chart in different colors.
  • (Dammit Jim, I write doc, I don't read it!)

... and the $64,000 question

  • How much of this be automated? Can we just point it directly at the Google Form spreadsheet data, or an exported version, and the Magic Happens™.

How satisfied were you with the schedule in general?[edit]

Template test[edit]

To save embedding multiple copies of verbose <graph> instructions, this uses a local template (the /Graph subpage). Just give it the title and the 5 counts and you're done!
