Status: In Research
Surveys are not yet available in Ultra Course View, but they are planned for future development.
Alternatives - Use an external anonymous survey site, such as Qualtrics or Microsoft Forms.
The Survey feature is useful for polling, and for conducting evaluations and random checks of knowledge. Surveys are a particularly useful means of gathering information from students, enabling faculty to get valuable feedback regarding the progress of a specific course activity or of the course in general. Surveys function in the same way as do Tests and offer most of the same options. The important distinctions between the two are that survey questions are not assigned any point values, cannot be graded, and all feedback is anonymous and aggregated (not individual).
First, access the Surveys page by clicking the Tests, Surveys, and Pools link from the Course Tools section of the Control Panel, then selecting Surveys on the following page. Surveys can be created in the following two ways:
Note: If students are in the midst of taking a survey or have already taken a survey, then questions cannot be changed (except for minor text editing). If faculty attempt to change the number of questions, modify answers, add or remove feedback, or change attached files that are part of a survey, then existing and subsequent survey submissions might become invalidated.
