Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 1.9. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version is available here: Adding/editing a feedback form.

After selecting Feedback from the Activities menu, you will be presented with a list of options for setting up a Feedback.


Give your Feedback a title.


This text will be displayed to users before they enter the feedback.

Open and Close Feedback

This allows you to set a time period during which the Feedback will be available to responses.

Record User Names

Choose from the following options:

  • Anonymous
  • Users' Names Will Be Logged and Shown With Answers

Show analysis to students

Yes/No. The summary results can be shown to respondents, or shown only to teachers.

Send E-Mail-Notifications

Yes/No. Notifications will be sent to the Moodle site administrators upon the submission.

Multiple submit

Yes/No, for anonymous polls allow unlimited answers for every user, for polls where the user name is logged this allow users to resubmit their answers.

Site after submit / Page after submit

This allows you to present users with a message after completion. If you want students to be sent somewhere or to see something other than "Your answers have been saved" after completing a Feedback activity, you can put a URL in Site after submit and/or some text in Page after submit respectively. If you fill them both in, the students will first see whatever text you put in Page after submit, then click Continue and be sent to the URL in Site after submit. If you leave them both blank, the students will just see a "Your answers have been saved" message. Neither of these fields are required for a student to answer the questions, but they must click the Answer the questions... link to start the Feedback activity.

Group mode

The group mode can be one of three levels:

  • No groups - There are no sub groups, everyone is part of one big community
  • Separate groups - Each group can only see their own group, others are invisible
  • Visible groups - Each group works in their own group, but can also see other groups

The group mode can be defined at two levels:

  • Course level - The group mode defined at the course level is the default mode for all activities defined within that course
  • Activity level - Each activity that supports groups can also define its own grouping mode. If the course is set to "force group mode" then the setting for each activity is ignored.

Visible to students

You can hide the activity from students by selecting "Hide" here. It is useful if you wouldn't like to make the activity available immediately.
