With another semester successfully completed, hopefully your experience with using VU Collaborate is becoming more and more positive. Before your students depart, build a survey or two to capture how your students felt about the course, so you have real data to improve the unit for the next semester.
How do I build a survey?
Creating a survey can be done by clicking on the Assessment tab and then Surveys within your VU Collaborate Space. Click on the New Survey button and proceed to add your questions. If you want to create more than one survey, you could build your questions in the Question Library first.
What types of questions can I add to the survey?
The Survey tool uses the same question types as the Quizzes tool, including Likert questions, short answer, long answer and multiple choice questions. See how to create a survey with this guide.
Can I make a survey anonymous?
Yes you can. When creating your survey, select the make results anonymous checkbox to enable submission anonymity.
Can students view or edit their survey submission?
Unfortunately once a student has submitted their survey responses, they are unable to review their submission or make further changes. A new submission will have to be made.
Where can I find an example of a survey used in VU Collaborate?
All staff have access to VU Collaborate Essentials where you are enrolled as a student so you can see how different things look from a student point of view. There is also information and communication tools for you to learn more about VU Collaborate and the other learning tools. By going into this Space and selecting Assessments and Surveys, you will be able to see an example of a survey including questions designed to collect space evaluation data.
