Add a Survey, Feedback, Questionnaire or Choice Activity in a CLE Course

The Survey, Feedback, Questionnaire, and Choice activities in the CLE are useful ways to gather data from students. Depending on the activity, instructors can choose to use pre-determined questions or create their own questions to collect information from students that can help them learn more about and improve their teaching practice. These activities are NOT meant to be used for student assessment.

This article will give an overview of these activities. For in-depth information, click on the Moodle Docs link at the bottom of each activity's tab.

Survey Activity

The Survey activity offers different survey types that have been found useful in assessing and stimulating learning in online environments. Surveys are not customizable. Once you select the survey framework, the questions are automatically populated. Surveys are not anonymous – instructors can see how individual students respond.

Survey types:

  1. Critical incidents survey used to evaluate students’ most impactful moments, including when students were most engaged, when they were most distanced, when they felt most affirmed or helped when they were most confused, and when they were most surprised.
  2. COLLES - Constructivist On-Line Learning Environment Survey used to measure students’ online learning experience in different aspects: relevance, reflective thinking, interactivity, teacher support, peer support, and communication.
  3. ATTLS - Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey used to measure whether students are more objective, logical learners or more empathetic, flexible learners.
