Add a Survey or Poll
August 3, 2016 - August 3, 2016
Moodle has several options to survey or poll your students:
Create a pre-populated Survey activity
The survey activity module provides a number of verified survey instruments that have been found useful in assessing and stimulating learning in online environments. A teacher can use these to gather data from their students that will help them learn about their class and reflect on their own teaching.
- The Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey (ATTLS)
- Critical incidents survey with questions about students' experiences of forums
- The Constructivist On-line Learning Environment Survey (COLLES).
Note that these survey tools are pre-populated with questions. Teachers who wish to create their own survey should use the feedback activity module.
