What does each section of reporting do?

Great, so you’re at the reporting stage of your evaluation. The data collected is displayed in a number of different charts within the reporting section of the Culture Counts dashboard. Components of the reporting dashboard include:

Evaluation Summary

On this page, you can view the total number of public responses received for your evaluation, the total dimensions tracked, and total number of surveys contained in the evaluation. The page also provides a summary of average scores for each dimension. The summary of dimensions is depicted in the form of a bar graph and is evaluated on a scale from 0-100. An average score of 0 demonstrates that respondents strongly disagreed, while a score of 100 indicates that respondents strongly agreed.


The demographics page displays the ratio of male, female, and “in another way” respondents in the form of a pie chart. This allows you to see whether your survey respondents were predominantly male, female or an alternative gender. The demographics section also depicts the age breakdown of survey respondents in the format of a bar graph.

Respondent Comparison

In this section you can observe the total number of survey responses, segmented into three categories: number of public responses, number of peer responses, and number of self assessor responses. Average scores for each respondent type for each dimension are then presented in the form of a bar graph on a scale from 0-100.  

This chart allows you to quickly compare the scores given by the public, peer and self respondent groups after experiencing the event, program or place.

Experiences and Expectations

In this section, you can see and compare the average prior and post dimension scores recorded for self and peer assessors. The results are shown in a bar graph and are measured on a scale from 0-100, with 0 meaning strongly disagree and 100 meaning strongly agree.

Comparing before and after scores demonstrates whether the event met, fell below or exceeded expectations. This chart is particularly useful for organisations to identify the areas in which they achieved their creative intentions or objectives. If prior and post surveys have not been carried out as part of the evaluation, no data will be available in this section.

Intelligence Questions

Intelligence Questions are frequently used custom question that have been standardised to allow for easy benchmarking and comparison. Intelligence questions often reflect common funder requirements and globally recognised measures (such as the Net Promoter Score). Utilising the preset Culture Counts intelligence questions can help to provide insights into marketing or outcomes specific to your organisation and will contribute to the big database of sector insights.

Response Origin

The sixth section of Reporting is titled Response Origin. Here you can see how the data for your survey was collected. Data can be collected from a mix of online responses, interviewer responses, display responses, peer assessor responses and self assessor responses. The breakdown of responses is then depicted in a pie chart. 

Custom Questions

When setting up a survey, you are given the option of including custom questions, which comprises any question type outside the standard dimension sets. This section of reporting presents the results from these questions in bar and pie chart format.  Audience comments and other longer custom question responses, can be accessed by exporting the raw csv file. This can be done at any time from the reporting section by clicking Export Evaluation in the top right corner of the screen.
