Moodle Questionnaire for Feedback

Description: The Questionnaire tool within Moodle is one option for getting feedback. It can be anonymous, if desired. It is a good option if you use Moodle heavily and you want an easy way to restrict a set of questions to those in your class. It is possible to see which completed a questionnaire, but still keep those responses anonymous. Qualtrics and Google Forms are similar options, but are not as easily restricted to your students.

Pros: Simple to create a questionnaire and share it with your students. Can easily collect aggregated, and to share, responses to each question.

Cons: Hard to create a report with each individual student’s survey response, showing all answers by that student.

Google Forms for Feedback

Google Forms provides a flexible way to gather feedback from any set of users. You can include questions with prose responses, or scaled ratings and multiple choice answers.  Results are assembled in a spreadsheet, but Google forms will also summarize answers to questions with preset answers or ratings. as charts and diagrams.  Moodle Surveys provides another way to gather feedback, but it is hard to assure anonymity in that platform.  Google Forms can be either attributed or anonymous, so they are especially good for course evaluations.

Learn more about Google Forms here, or view this sample course evaluation, which you can copy and adapt.  Note that you will need to adjust the settings of any form to allow BMC students to submit answers.

Pros:  Free, included as part of Haverford Gsuite, anonymous if needed.
