Cleaning up Data

Good morning, 

I am new to Microsoft BI and I am trying to clean up my data as it is messing with numbers when trying to create a dashboard. I have a report for exams and on the report it has columns for name, quiz name then a column for each question. For example: 

Jane Doe has 5 rows under name, then under Quiz Name the quiz is listed 5 times, then under question column is the name of each question. How do I merge data so when I make a dashboard it shows her as only one person per exam and not 5 times?  Thanks!
