Mobile Charts: Visualize Data for Participants

Create Mobile Charts that Show Participant Progress over Time

Steps to Create Mobile Charts

When conducting your experience sampling method (ESM) and ecological momentary assessment (EMA) project, you may want to create mobile charts for participants. The charts display data that participants have entered over time. In other words, it shows participants their own responses over time in a graph or chart in the ExpiWell mobile app. You can specify the axes and type of chart participants can see.
The mobile charts are especially useful in the following scenarios:
  1. Participants to track their progress over time
  2. Participants to learn about their own trajectory
  3. Ecological momentary interventions (EMIs) where self-knowledge is helpful
The following steps show how to create the mobile charts that participants can see.

Step 1: Create your questions, and toggle 'Score' to those questions you would like to create a chart. The scoring will appear on the right side of the choices.

Step 3: Click on the "+ Chart" option. You can label the chart and choose the number of days and the range of values. Choose whether you want the chart to display the mean (i.e., average score) or the sum (i.e., total score). Add the scored question that can be seen on the left if you would like to create a chart for this question. Click 'done', and you are all set. The chart will appear on your participant's mobile app.
Setting up a Chart

You can choose to add more charts or exit the survey builder to continue with the rest of your project set up.

In the ExpiWell mobile app, you can check for the chart after answering the survey.
