Crosstabs Overview


About Crosstabs

The Crosstabs reporting system is designed to improve the speed and ease of crosstab creation. Beyond a modernization of the look & feel, pre-defined tables are generated for all question and answer combinations, allowing users to quickly select the tables they desire by the segments they wish to view. Crosstabs incorporates the main navigation menu that is used throughout the Beacon platform, allowing for quick navigation from building and testing to reviewing the field report and downloading your data.

Additionally, users now have the power to define nets, create summary tables, update table text & add desired statistics.

Accessing Crosstabs

You can access Crosstabs from anywhere in the application using the universal navigation menu. To access Crosstabs, click "REPORT" in the navigation menu, then select "Crosstabs".

Note: In the survey testing application, this is found in the "Quick Links" menu.

Significance Testing

Significance testing, often called "Sig testing," is a test that results the confidence level on the likelihood two tested measurements are different; in other words, I am 95% confident that group A and group B are different on this feature. This can be referred to as either Confidence Level or Significance Level, and is indicated by uppercase letters (95% confidence) and lowercase letters (90% confidence) corresponding to the built-in Segment (i.e. column) indicators.
