askiaanalyse 5.3.3 has been released and it is fully packed with many new features and fixes. Below, we’ll detail some of the most interesting aspects of this new version:
Simplification of the tab definition panel¶
In order to declutter the `Tab definition` panel (especially for users who do not need advanced functionality), we have added a `Simplify general tab` option. When active, a new `Advanced` panel is displayed below the `Edges`. All the following controls are moved from General to advanced:
- Chart templates
Additions to the variable Description panel¶
We now also display the `Entry code` to the `Description` panel:
Also, each column is now sortable!
Customise the question caption in the treeview / tab definition¶
Simultaneously displaying different combinations of question captions; especially when manipulating a .QES/.QEW file you did not create.
Two new options have been added:
- Shortcut + Long Caption
- Short caption + Long caption
This feature is also available for the `Tab Definition` panel.
New export tools¶
The `Export to` MS Word, MS Excel & MS PowerPoint buttons have been added to the application’s toolbar.
You can use these directly from the `Results`, `Table` & `Portfolio` views.
Export the ToC to Excel¶
You can add a table of contents to your MS Excel export by means of the below option:
A `ToC` tab will be added to your Excel spreadsheet:
Import assets from another survey¶
Click the `Tools` menu and click `Import survey definitions`; you will be prompted to select the survey from which you wish to import one or more assets.
You have the possibility to import the `Sub-populations`, `Weightings` & `Calculated variables`.
To extend our support for more calculations, we have added `Mention rate` in crosstabs. All results will be calculated on the base of `Sum of responses`.
New calculations by Script: Counts & Percentage
We have added the `Script (base)` calculation for Totals which means you can override the default value for `Counts` to show the base (which makes it clear to explain how you calculate the %).
Wilcoxon’s Rank Sum Test
To compare two `Means` on paired samples (e.g. before / after comparison)
You now have the possibility to export your word cloud as an image (.BMP, .JPG or .GIF).
We have also added the `Group` feature to word clouds; these allow you to group words and (re)use them for other word clouds. You can add words to an existing category or create a new one:
You can of course manage your `Group` library by clicking the `Group` button:
Groups can be edited directly in any text editor:
Once you have amended / maintained your `Group` library, you can either display: `All words`, `Grouped words only` or `Groups only` in your word clouds.
New features for Numeric questions¶
You can assign different values on Numeric or Closed question and specify the `Base type`:
Let’s imagine the Numeric question contains the value 10 (a value that is considered as DK /not concerned in this example).
You can now set the DK value to its `Base type` (in the response `Properties`), change the factors (from 10 to NR). The statistic calculation will exclude it automatically.
Note: the answering base on Numeric question will display only the count per DK answers.
