Feedback

Summary

Using the Feedback activity allows you to create and conduct surveys – these surveys are non-gradable. If you’re looking for a solution that allows grading have a look at Questionnaires.

Resources

    1. Availability – use this to limit when answers can be accepted.
    2. Question and submission settings – settings here can make the activity anonymous or allow multiple submissions.
    3. After submission – use these settings to decide what happens after the survey is complete. You can provide an analysis page, completion message and link to the next activity.
