Evaluation form or Survey feature

Follow

Thanks for adding the polling tool. However, this allows for only one multiple choice like question to be asked and 'voted' on. For Schoology to be able to be a solution for our entire school we are required by NZQA to acquire student evaluations for each course, which get the students feedback and assessment of the course from many angles. Most questions involve a rating response (e.g. 1=poor to 5 =excellent) and others that ask for comments/written feedback, they also have the option of placing their name or leaving it anonymous.

I imagine that the current online test/quiz tool would be sufficient if two options were added:

a) An anonymous option to make students' names invisible to the instructor/admin

b) An option to make a question have no correct response, but just compile data (like a poll)

None

    I don't mark correct answers and am able to look at my information as a poll. I actually found your suggestion because I was looking to see if there was another option. I think what you would need to do if the instructor is not allowed to see the responses by student name would be to create another course to house all of the test tool surveys. Otherwise when you look at the survey results, you can gather only the responses by question with no names associated, but if the teacher had that window available they COULD open windows further to identify the student.

    I see how Lora O'Neill's suggestion would work for us. As building admin, I track which students have taken the survey, as we award extra credit for taking the survey, but that information is never associated with data given. I would prefer an in-course option that allows me to see who took it (separated from answers).

    It is a fairly important feature for us as well for the same reason.

    I'm a school librarian so I don't use Schoology as regularly as some of my counterparts. How do you add a poll? I want to do a March Madness poll on favorite books?

    I was playing with this as well. I wonder if the work around is to create a quiz where the point are worth 0. Has anyone tried that? I ended up just creating a google form and linking it via schoology. However, I would prefer the schoology interface over the spreadsheet results of google forms. Anyone have success with creating polls or surveys?

    Adding a method for taking course evaluation data seems like a no-brainer! (Except of course for the brains that would need to be employed in order to develop and launch the tool.)

    This has come up a lot in our organization as well, getting feedback is valuable.

    We use Schoology for our faculty, as well,  as a PLC - so we survey teachers all the time to get feedback. A survey tool would be ideal. Setting up a 'quiz' as a survey does not make it easy to gather all of the responses in an easily-readable format. WE NEED FORMS/SURVEYS/WORKSHEETS features!!

    We embed survey monkey into the pages of a course to gather student feedback. It works really well and you don't have to go outside of Schoology for the learner to complete it. Once they've completed it we go to survey monkey to crunch the data.

    This would be a great help to our College also.

    Mitch - How do you embed survey monkey? I'm trying it but when I copy and past the HTML embed text, Schoology Pages doesn't read it.

    The is something I have been hoping every year would be added! In fact staff that do not use the platform have said this is one of the reasons why. 

    Survey Monkey-I have used that by just adding the link and kids have been able to complete the survey

    I have had a separate communications course for staff for the Communication Committee where the make and account as a teacher with their work email and name to join like normal then make a new student account with no email and alias name. They then go into their teacher account and in the setting link it to their alias account. They then can interchangeably can post as themselves or anonymously without any possibility of their anonimity becoming otherwise. 

    This however is a logistics nightmare when your talking about all your classrooms. It seems the if Schoology and make a poll and make a test and quizzes this should be rather straight forward.

    Using external survey tools would be fine, but unless you make the students register, they can take the survey multiple times--biasing the results.

    Mitch - When I add Survey Monkey I keep getting an end page that asks the student to enter their email and take a survey generated by SurveyMonkey.  Have you had this problem?  Is there a way you have found to overcome my problem?  Thanks!

    While manually entering points to open-ended responses has great value, we would also love to have an option to have automatic grading (of open-ended survey questions) by completion.
