What is the Feedback activity?

The Feedback activity allows you to create and conduct surveys to collect feedback. Unlike the Survey tool it allows you to write your own questions, rather than choose from a list of pre-written questions and unlike the Quiz tool, you can create non-graded questions. The Feedback activity is ideal for course or teacher evaluations.

Overview of the Feedback activity

How is it set up?

  1. In a course, with the editing turned on, choose 'Feedback' from the activity chooser.
  2. Give it a name and if required, a description
  3. Expand the other sections to define the settings you want, in particular Question and Submission settings and what to display After submission.
  4. Click Save and display and from the Edit questions tab, Add question drop down, add the questions you want.
