If you need to show data distribution of a huge range in several groups, you can take the help of histograms. Histograms sort data and information into buckets of similar value instead of going by their actual value. Google sheets offer an easy-to-use histogram. It’s an in-built feature in Google sheets.
If you are to make a list of the percentages scored by candidates, instead of listing how many times someone scored a given percentage, a histogram would make a range of percentages scored by the candidate. Even if you have to submit boardroom presentations, histograms are extremely useful in such cases.
