ExpiWell: Create Mobile Charts that show Participant Progress

Create Mobile Charts that Show Participant Progress over Time

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: In the survey builder, toggle the “Score” option for the questions you would like to include in the charts.

                Note: Only Multiple-choice question types with scoring can be used for the chart options.
