Polling the Nations makes it especially easy to create graphs for any question in the database.
A button at the bottom of every record invites users to "Graph This Question."
Clicking the button exports the question to an Excel worksheet.
Once the data are in the worksheet, by highlighting response categories and percentages, users are free to create pie charts, bar charts and more, taking advantage of the full range of graphing capabilities available.
The chart created, the question wording and polling source information can all be copied from Excel and pasted into Word, Power Point and others to enhance a report or presentation. The data can also be pasted into other graphing programs, such as Harvard Graphics.
An excellent resource for math classes
Many math curriculum standards require that students be able to create graphs, as appropriate, to display data. Polling the Nations is an outstanding resource for these assignments.
