==Public questionnaire roll out to multiple courses==
 
 
It is possible to create a Public questionnaire which can be placed in several simultaneous courses, yet the responses are not visible to the teachers of those courses. In fact, the responses are only accessible in the original public questionnaire. A good application of this setup is for course evaluations which you want students to take. In such an example, you don't want your instructors to view or alter those responses.
 
 
Here's how you do it:
 
<ol>
 
<li>Create a course that will simply be a shell for any public questionnaires. Give it whatever title you like. You can hide the course entirely. </li>
 
<li>Create your questionnaire in this course. Be sure to select '''Public''' for the questionnaire type.</li>
 
<li>Build all of the questionnaire questions in this public questionnaire.</li>
 
<li>Navigate to the course where you want to place the questionnaire for respondents.</li>
 
<li>Select the option to add a questionnaire. Complete the creation screen. For Type, select Respond once. For Respondent Eligibility, select Students only. '''For Questionnaire type, select Private.''' Then select the public questionnaire you created in the other course.</li>
 
<li>After you save your changes, the same screen will appear. Note that the questionnaire type now says "Public," and the selected public questionnaire is shown below.</li>
 
<li>Test it out! Student responses will appear in the original questionnaire, but will not be visible at all in the local questionnaire. Teachers will be able to preview the survey, but will not be able to respond to it or to view responses.</li>
 
</ol>
 
 
==Template questionnaire used in multiple courses==
 
 
When the responses to your questionnaire should remain accessible in the course in which it resides, but the questionnaire itself will follow a standard format with the same questions, use a template-type of questionnaire. So instead of re-creating the questions for each questionnaire, you can apply the template questionnaire to each one you create. 
 
 
Here's how you do it:
 
<ol>
 
<li>Create a course that will simply be a shell for any template questionnaires. Give it whatever title you like. You can hide the course entirely. </li>
 
<li>Create your questionnaire in this course. Be sure to select '''Template''' for the questionnaire type.</li>
 
<li>Build all of the questionnaire questions in this template questionnaire.</li>
 
<li>Navigate to the course where you want to place the questionnaire for respondents.</li>
 
<li>Select the option to add a questionnaire. Complete the creation screen. For Type, select whichever option you like. For Respondent Eligibility, select Students only. Then select the template questionnaire you created in the other course. '''For Questionnaire type, select Private.''' </li>
 
<li>After you save your changes, the same screen will appear. Note that the questionnaire type now says "Private" and the selected template questionnaire is shown below.</li>
 
<li>Test it out! Student responses will appear in the local questionnaire instead of in the template questionnaire you created outside of the course. </li>
 
</ol>
 
 
If you don't want your teachers to view or alter questionnaire responses, just define this in the Define Roles settings for Questionnaires. In Define Roles, you can limit teachers from being able to delete responses from the questionnaire, or be able to submit their own questionnaires or view responses.

Revision as of 15:51, 14 December 2010

Open/Close dates

Set the date window for when users can complete the questionnaire. You can leave the boxes unchecked if you want the questionnaire to be continually available.

Type

Select whether users will be allowed to respond once, daily, weekly, monthly or an unlimited number of times (many).

Respondent Type

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.

Respondent Eligibility

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.

Response viewing

You can specify who can see the responses of all respondents to submitted questionnaires (general statistics tables).

Students can view ALL responses ->

  1. Never. By default, only teachers of the owning course can see all questionnaire submitted responses.
  2. 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.
  3. After the questionnaire is closed.
  4. Always.

Please use the Roles and capabilities system to decide which course participants will be allowed to view a) their own responses b) all responses.

Save/Resume answers

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!

Content Options

Select one of the radio button options. 'Create new' is the default.

You can create questionnaires using three different methods:

Create New:
This option allows you to create a completely new questionnaire from scratch.
Copy Existing:
This option copies a pre-existing questionnaire's content to a new questionnaire, pre-seeding the content. You can copy questionnaires belonging to the course, or ones specifically marked as 'template'.
Use Public:
If a questionnaire has already been created (in another course on the same Moodle site) with the "public" setting, then you may use that "public" questionnaire in your own course(s). The number of settings available to such questionnaires is limited and you cannot edit its questions nor view the responses.
Example .- If a public questionnaire has been created in course A, it can be "used" in courses B, C, ... All the responses from courses A, B, C, ... are collected in the public questionnaire created in course A (the original course where it was created) and are viewable there by the person (admin or teacher) who originally created it.
