Scatter plot

Click the Scatter plot icon to visualise your data as a scatter plot. A scatter plot allows you to take two metrics (One on the X-Axis and one on the Y-Axis) and see if there is a relationship between them.

The Scatter plot is essentially same as aBubble chart. The only difference between them is, the Bubble chart features an extra measures section called Measures (Size), used to determine the size of each bubble on the chart.


In the example below, this scatter plot is being used to show if there is a correlation between the assessment completion rate (on the Y-Axis) and the number of questions in an assessment (on the X-Axis). 

To recreate this example: 

  • Drag the Number of Questions in Assessment measure from the Data Catalogue, into the Measure (X-axis) section. This section displays the measure on the X-axis of the scatter plot.

  • Drag the Assessment Completion Rate measure from the Data Catalogue, into the Measure (Y-axis) section. This section displays a measure on the Y-axis of the scatter plot. 

  • Drag the Assessment Id attribute from the Data Catalogue, into the Attribute section. This section is used to display an attribute. This attribute determines the meaning of each point in the scatter plot.

  • Drag the Assessment Type attribute from the Data Catalogue, into the Filters section above the chart. 

    From the dropdown, select Formal, so that the bubble chart only shows formal assessments.
