Moodle 3.0, 3.2: Survey Feedback Question Types
Applies to: Moodle 2.8, 3.0, 3.2.
The Feedback activity allows instructors to create and conduct surveys online.
When creating or editing a Feedback activity you have several question types from which to choose. There are also items that help with the layout of your survey.
To create a survey and add questions, see Create an Online Survey (Feedback).
This article covers:
Creates a multiple choice question. The question can be set for students to be able to do one of the following:
- Choose a single answer
- Choose multiple answers
- Choose a single answer from a drop-down list
Multiple choice (rated)
Creates a multiple choice question. Students can chose a single answer. Each answer has a number associated with it so that reports can show numeric averages.
- Example: You could use the following question both before and after a course and compare the numeric averages of the results:
- How would you rate your level of knowledge with the course subject?
- (5) Very comfortable
- (4) Good
- (3) Average
- (2) Know a little
- (1) Completely unfamiliar
Short text answer
Creates a question with a text box for a typed answer. This is best used for text responses that are expected to be less than about 50 characters.
Longer text answer
Creates a question with a text box for a typed answer. You can adjust the size of the text box on the screen. The text box itself accepts a very large amount of text.
Creates a question with a text box for a typed answer. The student can only enter numbers in the answer text box. You can specify an acceptable range for the answer, e.g. 1-100.
Allows you to add text between questions for extra explanation or to divide into sections.
Add a page break
Allows you to break the survey up into two or more pages.
This displays a label plus one of two types of information in the quiz:
- Course name (short name of the Moodle course site)
- Course category where the feedback is located (usually this is your University department)
The Information option is useful if you are using the same Feedback survey in several course sites. The reports you export from each survey will include a column that contains this information, thus making it easier to identify which course site the particular set of answers came from.
This is NOT enabled in our instance of Moodle. Captcha is a test to ensure a real person rather than a computer is submitting feedback.
