Assessment: Surveys

Blackboard Surveys are a tool to gain information from your students and are similar to the Blackboard Test tool. Surveys are different from test in that all responses are anonymous, there are no correct/incorrect answers and they are generally not graded.

Why use a survey?

Surveys are useful in Blackboard for the same reasons they are used in everyday life. You, the instructor, can get feedback on your course or teaching style, as well as gather information concerning student opinions or viewpoints on sensitive topics for class discussion. It is important to remember none of the results will be tied to the student who responded.
