Spider graph - or something else?

This post has NOT been accepted by the mailing list yet.
Hey guys.

I've been an avid reader of this list for quite some time but I've never contributed in any way or form - I'll change that now (cynics would argue that I only want to participate now that I have a problem).

Okay, so a long version short. I have collected data from several classrooms about their teachers. So a class of 30 students have answered questions about 1 teacher. I've constructed 8 scales from the answers and I want to be able to show the teachers the average score on each of the 8 scales in one chart. I've found the "radar"-program and I've tried graph7, star but they aren't doing what I want them to. I basically want the 8 scores placed on each of the radars/starts lines and marked on the line where the score is. The ideal is to have a mark, the next best thing is a connected line between the lines in the radar/star. I've attached a picture with the basics of what I'm looking for (but this does not have the markings/connected lines). I think one of my problems is, that I have 8 variables (1 for each scale) that only contain the score when I use the mean.

The closest I've come is:

graph pie Q1 Q2 Q3 Q4 Q5 Q6 Q7 Q8

Which is horrible, to say the least.

Thank you for your help!
