Surveys in Course Evaluations & Surveys:
- Can contain any combination of available survey question types.
- Be organized using survey labels.
- Can be configured with branching logic.
When creating or editing a survey you will see numeric weightings for each response option, as well as additional properties selected for each question.
If a question has at least one response associated, the question cannot be deleted. If a question has no responses, however, it can be deleted from the Survey. If the question does have associated response, but then must be updated or removed, you will need to copy the Survey, make those changes in the new version of the survey, and then use that new survey going forward.
Single Selection Question
- Single Selection Question type is where the student will pick from one of many options. This works best for yes/no and Likert-type scale questions and can be formatted both vertically and horizontally.
Multiple Selection Question
- Multiple Selection Question type allows the student to check all that apply and is only appropriate when asking the student to select multiple or potentially multiple responses from multiple options.
- Matrix Question type has a common response scale and multiple items being evaluated on the same response scale. Here, the student would go through and respond to the different items from one response scale.
Numeric Selection Question
- Numeric Selection Question type allows you to setup numeric ranges using a slider and the student can then input a numeric selection based on that range.
Open-Ended Text Response Question
- Open-Ended Text Response Question Type is for write-in responses and/or comments.
- The Survey Label is text that you can add anywhere in the body of your survey to organize, write instructional text or add a thank you message at the end. You can insert these survey labels anywhere throughout your survey to add these text breaks.
Branching Logic in Surveys
- Branching logic (sometimes called skip logic) allows the CES Administrator to manage the questions presented to a respondent, based on the user’s response options.
