System requirements

To start using the program you need to have any recent version of Java installed in your system. If you're using WebExp2, most certainly you already have it. Otherwise follow this link to download latest version of Java for your specific system.

AnalyseIt requires approximatelly 7 MB of free space.

AnalyseIt is cross-platform and will run on Windows, Linux and Mac

Installing and running the program

Unzip the archive to any suitable folder.
If you have already configured running of jar files automatically, just run alayseIt.jar file and it will launch the program.
Otherwise use the following command to run the file:
java -jar AnalyzeIt.jar

Loading result files (.xml) to the program

To start analysing your results you have to load them to the program. You can do that in 2 ways:

  1. In the menu toolbar select File->Add Results, then browse to folder which contains your results and select them. You can select all results at the same time.
  2. With the support of "drag-n-drop" you can simply select all results in appropriate file browser and drag them to any place of AnalyseIt. The program will open them automatically.
You can add new results at any time later, after loading first results.

You will see a progress bar in the status bar of the program, which indicates loading of the results. Once they are loaded you will see them in table view.

Results tab

This is the main tab of the program. It shows all loaded results in a table form, where each row is a separate result file. Every property is presented as column. Columns are grouped for better presentation.

Results can be sorted by any column, by simply clicking on a column header.

To view basic statistical information (min, max, mean and standard deviation) of the data in specific column across results, select cells with mouse - information will be displayed automatically.

Filter button allows quick access to filter function. It is possible to turn filters on and off with one click.

Filters tab

This tab allows to filter loaded results in various ways.

Stages filter shows all stages in the experiment and allows to hide any of them by transfering stage to "Hide" box. To "hide" a stage, select it in a "Show" box and click ">" button. Showing works in the same way but reverse.

Slides filter works in the same way as stages filter.

Responce, Advancer and Other filters allow to hide properties of the results. Tick a property you wish to hide or untick to show.

Duplicate subject filter uses information from /subject/ folder of experiment results (if available) and allows to filter out results based on subject information. It is possible to filter out "duplicate" results based on some or all parameters like IP address, OS etc. For example, if you tick "ip" and click "Apply" button it will remove any result where ip address is the same as any previously loaded result.

To apply filters click "Apply" button.

Graphs and reports tab

This tab allows to visualise results with help of graphs and reports. You can select from several pre-defined graphs and reports or select a custom graph. To draw a graph, select it from the list and click "Generate".

Average time report displays average time spent by participants on every slide.

Time report displays how each participant progressed through slides.

Subjects by country displays regional distribution of participants, based on /subjects/ folder (if available)

Responces graph displays distribution of answers for every slide. Note: May be useless in case of large amount of slides.

Mean answers graph displays min, max and mean of participants answers per slide. Note: Only works with numerical answers.

Custom graph allows you to choose specific responce and average results across it. First select a stage, then a slide, and finally required responce.

After a graph or chart has been generated, it is possible to export it. Choose a format (png or jpg), export size (width and height in pixels) and click "Export to file.." button.

Stimuli averages tab

This tab allows selecting several stimuli and average them across results. You can select multiple stimuli (holding Ctrl key in Windows) and then click "Average" button.

Export tab

This tab helps to export results in a csv format. You can select to include or exclude stage and slide names from exported data by ticking or unticking relevant tags.

Note: if filters are turned on, they will be applied to exported data.


When the program starts, Tips window is displayed. Tips contain useful information about the program. You can disable auto display of tips by ticking appropriate box. You can display Tips window manually by clicking "Help->Show tips".

If you want to start working with new experiment results, click "File->New Analysis".
