Canvas Survey Data Export - Survey Statistics

Question asked by Jessica Denny on Dec 13, 2016

Hello Canvas People,


I have a question regarding the way in which Survey Data is exported from Canvas. We offer a satisfaction survey in all of our courses and when it is exported from Canvas as a .csv file, the data has a lot of extra columns, special characters, and random numbers requiring a lot of manual clean up. Does anyone know a way around this and/or why this is occurring. I am using the "survey statistics" "student analysis" feature to generate my reports.


I have attached a picture below for reference. The highlighted numbers appear in front of every question, followed by a column of numbers 0,1 and column AE shows one of the special characters that almost always appears on export.


Any insight or suggestions would be appreciated. Thank you.
