This is a new free addon for the quiz maker plugin WatuPRO.

The plugin allows you to create Likert scale surveys really quick. It also includes a couple of shortcodes to display the survey answers to the user in a bar chart.

How Does It Work

The plugin creates a regular WatuPRO quiz with all questions marked as survey questions and automatically adds all the answers. It allows you to add many questions quickly and automatically adds all answers for the Likert scale. It’s a tremendous time saver for creating such type of surveys.

After activating the plugin you will see a new link under your WatuPRO menu: “Likert scale survey”. Have a quick look at the options:

likert

The page allows you to create up to 8 questions at one and then add more and more with the same settings (scale etc). Or change the scale for the next set of questions.

There are 5 scales supported: Agreement, Importance, Frequency, Likelihood, and Custom. All settings are editable.

Once the survey is created you will be directed to Edit Quiz page to fine-tune and publish the quiz. You can of course then edit the questions, add media, etc just like with every WatuPRO quiz.

The Bar Chart

To display the bar chart you need minimum WatuPRO version 4.6.7.8 because this is the version from which survey questions do not require the points assigned to them.

The bar charts are added via shortcodes (the survey maker can automatically add them for you). Here is example of a chart by category:

likert-chart

The table will follow the table style definitions of your theme. If you want to style it, it has CSS class “watupro-likert-chart”. The color of the bars is currently hardcoded to #AAA but this will be improved soon.
