The Moodle Questionnaire module is a survey-like type of activity. It allows teachers to create a wide range of questions to get student feedback e.g. on a course or activities. The goals of the Questionnaire module are quite different from those of the Moodle Lesson or Quiz modules. With Questionnaire you do not test or assess the student, you gather data.
Step 1 Turn Editing On
Login to course and Turn editing on, located in the Course administration.
Step 2 Add Questionnaire
Click on the “Add an activity or resource” , there is a pop-up window that will have all the activities and resources listed.
Step 3 General
Give your Questionnaire Name (e.g. “Report on Topic 1 Content”). The title entered here will be the name that learners see in the course content area.
The description of the questionnaire, which should include precise instructions for students regarding the subject of the assignment, the form, in which it should be submitted, the grading criteria etc.
Step 4 Timing
You can specify a date to open/close the questionnaire here. Check the check boxes, and select the date and time you want. Users will not be able to fill out the questionnaire before/after that date. If this is not selected, it will be open immediately and never closed.
Step 5 Response Options
Select whether users will be allowed to respond once, daily, weekly, monthly or an unlimited number of times (many).
You can display your users’ full names with each response by setting this to “fullname”. You can hide your users’ identities from the responses by setting this to “anonymous”. Note.- If your Moodle course allows guests, they will only be allowed to respond to a questionnaire whose responses have been set to anonymous.
Decide whether everyone can answer or whether you want to restrict it to tutor only or student only responses. For restricted access options remember to assign the correct roles either at the course or activity level. For example, if you put a questionnaire on the front page, intended for teachers only, then you will have to let Moodle know which users are teachers.
You can specify who can see the responses of all respondents to submitted questionnaires (general statistics tables).
Students can view ALL responses ->
Never. By default, only teachers of the owning course can see all questionnaire submitted responses.
After answering the questionnaire. This allows students to see all responses after answering a questionnaire that is set to respond once only. If a questionnaire is set to respond more than once, then students cannot see all responses unless you use one of the next two options.
After the questionnaire is closed.
Please use the Roles and capabilities system to decide which course participants will be allowed to view a) their own responses b) all responses.
Setting this option allows users to save their answers to a questionnaire before submitting them. Users can leave the questionnaire unfinished and resume from the save point at a later date. Note .- If a questionnaire is set to Save/Resume answers, then guests will not be allowed to view it. Since there is no way for Moodle to tell one guest from another, it would not make sense for one guest to start responding to a questionnaire and another guest to finish it!
Step 6 Common module settings
Group Mode - When course group mode is turned on, the group mode can be one of three levels: No groups, Separate groups or Visible groups.
Step 7 Restrict access
Restrict access settings - The restrict access section asks for the conditions when the activity (or resource) should be visible. This can be based upon dates, and/or score ranges of other activities and/or if other activities are considered completed. Note that ALL access restrictions (date, grade condition, activity completion condition) have to be met in order for the activity to be made available.
Step 8 Save or Cancel
-Allows to save and go back to main Moodle page.
- Allows to save and display new page/activity.
- will not save any changes, and send back to main Moodle page.
