Can we track anonymous respondent's answers?

Is it possible we track the same person’s answers without having to know his name?

For example I’m going to ask the same question before and after the class. How can I know if the individual has changed the answer after the class?

I don’t want to know who the people are. I just want to make sure the pre-test and post-test are the same person.

Hi, Toto, 

Thanks for your question!

Yes, it’s definitely possible to compare participants’ answers to two different polls. You can find this information in polls per user export (available in all paid plans). 

Every participants has a User ID, and thus, when you download the export from the Analytics tab in Admin, you can then compare how a person responded to all your polls. 

Here’s an example of answers in polls per user .xls file: 

All answers from one participant will be provided in a single line and you’ll see all the polls in columns. In case they didn’t submit their answer for a particular poll, that respective cell will remain empty. 

Tip: To distinguish two identical polls in your export, you can mark them with numbers.

To learn more about exports, follow the link to our Help Center article. 

Hope this helps!
