For my masters thesis I'm using a specific questionnaire. The questionnaire provides an evaluation tool that provides some nice graphics in excel. I want to create the same look in Latex to keep everything consistent.

Green Arrow

I can not find a good way to include an arrow symbol that look similar to the one in the picture.

\textcolor{OliveGreen}{$\uparrow$}

Just does not cut it for me.

too small arrows

I already looked here https://www.rpi.edu/dept/arc/training/latex/LaTeX_symbols.pdf and scribbled in http://detexify.kirelabs.org/classify.html but found nothing suitable.

You could build your own.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{tikz}
\usetikzlibrary{shapes.arrows}
\newcommand{\FancyUpArrow}{\begin{tikzpicture}[baseline=-0.3em]
\node[single arrow,draw,rotate=90,single arrow head extend=0.2em,inner
ysep=0.2em,transform shape,line width=0.05em,top color=green,bottom color=green!50!black] (X){};
\end{tikzpicture}}
\begin{document}
ABC \FancyUpArrow\ DEF

{\Large ABC \FancyUpArrow\ DEF}
\end{document}

enter image description here

The pifont package has all kinds of nice arrows:

\documentclass{article}

\usepackage{pifont}
\usepackage{xcolor}
\usepackage{graphicx}

\begin{document}

foo \rotatebox{90}{\color{green!80!black}\ding{225}} bar

\end{document}

enter image description here

This is a simple construction of a big fat green arrow using Mathcha. By changing the scale parameters you can construct an arrow of different sizes depending on the size of the character which is not automatic.

enter image description here

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage[dvipsnames,table,xcdraw]{xcolor}
\usepackage{tikz}
\tikzset{every picture/.style={line width=0pt}}
\newcommand{\bigfatgreen}{\begin{tikzpicture}[x=0.5pt,y=0.6pt,yscale=-.5,xscale=.5]
\draw  [fill=ForestGreen!70,fill opacity=1] (100,123.22) -- (113.25,113) -- (126.5,123.22) -- (119.88,123.22) -- (119.88,138.54) -- (106.63,138.54) -- (106.63,123.22) -- cycle ;
\end{tikzpicture}}
\begin{document}

\begin{table}[]
\centering
\begin{tabular}{|l|l|l|}
\hline
\rowcolor[HTML]{C0C0C0} 
\multicolumn{1}{|c|}{\cellcolor[HTML]{C0C0C0}\textbf{Item}} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{\cellcolor[HTML]{C0C0C0}\textbf{Mean}} & \multicolumn{1}{c|}{\cellcolor[HTML]{C0C0C0}\textbf{Variance}} \\ \hline
1                                                           & \bigfatgreen\, 1,3                                                        & 1,0                                                            \\ \hline
\end{tabular}
\end{table}

\end{document}
