When reports are ready, an email will be sent to users with a link on accessing their reports.   Users can also navigate to the Instructor survey area in Canvas and navigate to reports.  There are different viewing options. The full version is documented below.

All the questions are listed on the form and divided into sections on the report. These questions include core survey questions depending on type of course as well as questions that may have been added on a department specific basis.
