Hello, I am trying to put a Likert-ish survey into visuals. I haven't the slightest idea of where to start. It has been a while since school and the platforms have changed to the point where I don't quite know how or what of my data needs to be manipulated to generate something pretty and easy for a laymen to understand. What I have are 6 sheets in excel with 70 plus questions per sheet and answers ranging from 1-4 (not difficult to very difficult). I was not staff when this survey was created or administered, so I'm trying to understand how I can use what was collected to create something polished. Any pointers on where to start?
My suggestion is to read Steve Wexler’s posts at http://www.datarevelations.com/visualizing-survey-data <http://www.datarevelations.com/visualizing-survey-data>, he’s done an amazing job of organizing the “how to” of working with Tableau and survey data.
