Create a Survey

This article provides instructors with step-by-step instructions describing how to create a Survey, how to create a link to your survey in the Content section of your course, and how to view the results of the survey via Statistics.. IMPORTANT: This documentation does not explain how to create different types of survey questions, only how to construct a survey.

To create a survey:

1. Within your course, click Activities > Survey.

2. Click the blue New Survey button.

3. Enter a Name and choose the settings for your survey. NOTE: If you make your results anonymous, you will not be able to change your mind after hitting Save.

4. To add questions directly to your survey, click Add/Edit Questions.

5. Choose different question types from the New drop-down button. (Many of the question types are similar to questions available in a Brightspace quiz; however, Likert-type questions are available in Surveys as well).

6. Once you’ve added your survey questions, click Done Editing Questions.

7. Click Save.

Adding a Survey to a Content Module

1. Click Content on the navbar.

2. Click on the module in which you would like to place the Survey (ex. Week 1 Module).

3. Click Existing Activities.

4. From the drop down menu, select Surveys; choose the Survey you would like to add.

Viewing Results via Statistics

Based on how you have set up the survey properties, you might see a list of all users or just the overall survey results with anonymous responses.

1. Click Activities > Surveys.

2. On the Manage Surveys page, click on the chevron to the right of the survey whose results you wish to view; from the drop down menu, select Statistics.

3. To view a specific user’s results, click on an individual attempt. To view the number of attempts per question within a survey, click View Overall Results at the bottom of the page.

4. If you chose to make your survey Anonymous, this page should show the Overall Results by default.
