Survey Settings

Previewing your survey before you release it is important. You may wish to review what it looks like before you use it. Branching can also be applied to your survey. This is particularly useful if you are using a lot of multiple choice or true and false questions. You can also associate a survey with learning objectives (we will cover learning objectives later on)

Previewing Surveys

The survey preview option allows you to test the accuracy of content before you release a survey. You can answer questions, submit survey, and preview the description and submission message.

  1. On the Manage Surveys page, click  Preview from the context menu of the survey you want to preview.
  2. Click Exit Preview to return to the Manage Surveys page.

Setting Survey Branching

If you have Multiple Choice and True or False questions in your survey, it is possible to add branching. Branching is an optional feature that a site administrator must enable for your course offering.

  1. On the Manage Surveys page, click on the survey you want to add branching to.
  2. Click the Properties tab.
  3. Click Branching Wizard. The wizard displays a list of the questions in your survey and their corresponding types. Answers are shown for Multiple Choice and True or False questions. You have the option to skip questions or terminate the survey based on the answer to a Multiple Choice or True or False question.
  4. Choose the answers that you want to create a branch from and fill in appropriate branching information.
  5. Click Save.

When branching is used, survey questions are presented one at a time, each on a separate page (in other words, page breaks are inserted between every question).

Associating Surveys with Learning Objectives

Use the Objectives tab on a surveys Edit page to associate the survey with learning objectives. By associating surveys with learning objectives, you can tie assignments to competency structures and competencies you want users to master. Associations can be basic associations or associations with rubric-based assessments.

  2. In the Objectives tab, click Associate Learning Objectives.
