How to use SuperVision:

1. Define your study.

What is it you want to know? How many fairway strokes in your golf round? How many inside corners in a room for your carpeting bid? How long it took your son to clean his room? How your customers rate your products?


You ask the questions, we’ll help you as you record the answers.


Questions can be defined by any of the following types, based on what kind of information you want to collect:

  1. - Select One or Select Multiple. These question types allow you to pick items from a list to answer a question. And you can even define your own list! Want to know which political candidate a person is voting for? Add the candidates to a list and then just touch the correct name as your are conducting your exit poll.

  2. - Counter. Counters allow you to track the number of times something happened. How many times did your waiter refill your drink during your meal as you were evaluating a restaurant? How many times did the customer service person redirect your call before you spoke to the right person?

  3. - Yes/No. Quickly keep track of whether or not something happened during your observation. Did the job candidate you were interviewing demonstrate knowledge about your company or product?

  4. - Stopwatch. How long did something take? How long were your secret shoppers in the new location of your store before someone offered to help them? How many minutes did your daughter play in last night’s game?

  5. - Text. Sometimes there is just no better way to record data than to type it in. What was the name of the golf pro that helped you with your shot in this session? What city is your customer visiting from? Is there an email address you can use to follow-up with them?

2. Measure

SuperVision helps you gather information for your study. As you take surveys, play games, perform inspections, or in any other way gather data, you create observations in SuperVision. Each observation is a data point. You may take an observation for each round of golf you play so that you can compare your statistics over time. You may take an observation for each voting location that you survey. You may take an observation for each customer that you interview. Or you may take an observation each week to record your child’s progress in piano lessons.

3. Analyze

As you gather observations of related data, you will want to see how different observations compare to each other. Is my game improving? Is this restaurant better than the others? Is my child getting more playing time as he scores more points? Are my customers happier when I am running a sale?


The simplest way to analyze data is to use the “Averages” view in SuperVision. Just touch the Averages button and the screen will flip around to reveal the averages of all observations in this study. This feature makes it really easy to compare your current observation to the average.


When you need more data processing power, just touch the “Send Results” button to email yourself a copy of all the observation data in a study. The data is sent in a convenient CSV format, ready for use in Excel, Access, or any other data analysis tool of your choice.


Once you know what’s happening, then you can make informed decisions on how to improve it. Am I consistently shooting the ball off of the fairway on long holes. Is there an aspect of my business that my customers consistently rate low? Are voters on the west side less likely to support my candidate?
