A Survey is a method of examining the records with various methods. With the help of this plugin addon, the questionnaire method will be used for your survey.
Polls are the records for opinions or votes. A single question of a survey can also be considered as a poll with the help of this plugin addon.

However, do keep in mind that you can’t enable both the survey reporting and quiz at the same time. One must be disabled in order to enable the other. But, the Polls Results can be displayed with both Survey Reporting as well as the Quiz.

However, do keep in mind that these fields will work for your website for a survey, polls or quiz only if you have purchased the Everest Forms Pro version and the Everest Form Survey, Polls, & Quiz addon.
Reviewing the Results #
Once your users fill out the survey, polls or the quiz, you can view the results on your dashboard as well. To view them, go to Everest Forms -> Entries. Or, go to Everest Forms -> All Forms. Then click on the Entries of your survey, polls, or the quiz.
You can view all the detailed stats of the results entered by your users in the Everest Forms Survey, Polls, and Quiz addon. There are different ways through which they are displayed for each Survey, Polls, and Quiz.
The Survey has a lot of details that can be viewed on your dashboard. Just select the survey of which you want to view the results from the Entries on your Dashboard. Here, you can see the number of users who have Responded, Completed, and Dismissed the survey. This can be displayed in all the fields. There are also bar charts, pie charts, and line charts for the survey fields like checkbox, multiple choices or radio, dropdowns or select, ratings, and scale ratings. Their summaries in percentage are also displayed at the right side of the screen.
For the remaining fields of the Survey like the likert, single line text, and the paragraph line text, only the results are displayed.
You can also view all summaries of the survey at once if you want by clicking on View All Summary.
Since a single question of the survey can be regarded as a poll, the results shown for the polls are quite similar to the survey. Only the fields compatible with the Polls are shown in the results of the Entries. So, do make sure that you have enabled the Poll Results checkbox in the Settings and Enable Survey checkbox in the Field Options.
The results of the poll can be viewed on either the dashboard of the website or at frontend on the website. The results of it on the Dashboard is displayed similarly with the survey with the help of various charts and other required information. It also shows the Total Votes and number of votes Skipped.
The results of the quiz can also be viewed on the Entries Tab. You do need to remember that when you click on the Entries Tab, the last entries that you selected will be opened at the first. You need to click on the View All Summary and select the summaries for the quiz in order to display the quiz results on your dashboard.
You can always go to Entries directly from All Forms on your Dashboard if you find the process very tedious.
Now, you can view each of the answers and their scores by clicking on View of the respective user in the Action column.
When you view them, the number of correct and incorrect answers along with their total scores can be seen. The Entry ID, Submitted Date, User name, and User IP are also displayed here.
The results can also be shown on the screen of the user as well in the frontend. The Total Marks and Marks Obtained are also shown along with the report of the answers entered by the users.
The options that you choose on the Settings while enabling the addon can also play a huge role in displaying the results.
If you submit the Immediate feedback option, the feedback will appear right after you click on your answer.
There are two separate options with which you can show the feedback. If you select the Feedback after form submission, the feedback will appear only after you submit the form.
The Overall Feedback can be displayed on the immediate feedback as well as feedback after submission.
Note: You can easily add the feedback based on the performance of the user from the quiz. The overall feedback can be varied from the percentage of the score that the user obtains while taking the quiz. Just appoint the percentage of the score and add the feedback accordingly.
