    Scoreboard Instructions

    Activity Action
    Revealing the Analysis Results Press the Enter key to reveal the analysis results.
    Skipping an Analysis Slide

    Press the Esc key then the Enter to skip past the analysis slide without revealing the results.

    If results are present and you don't want to clear them then you can skip the analysis slide by just pressing the 'Enter' key.

    Clearing Results

    Press the Delete key to clear an analysis slide that already contains results.

    Note: This will not clear the results from the questions referenced by the analysis slide.

    Slide References Missing

    If you see this message then the current analysis slide is broken and will not reveal any results. The most probable reason is that one of the slides that it is querying the results of has either since been deleted or changed, rendering the analysis slide invalid.

    Press Enter to skip past a slide in this state. The analysis slide and referenced question(s) will probably need to recreated.
