Survey

Unable to render embedded object: File (surveyIcon.PNG) not found.

The Survey Tool is similar to Multiple Choice, in that it presents learners with a number of questions fir responses. However, unlike Multiple Choice there are no right or wrong answers - the system just collates all answers for analysis by the teacher in the monitoring area.
Question types include single response, multiple response and open text entry, and questions can be mandatory or optional.
For multiple choice questions, Learners can also be provided with the option of adding their own answer to a list.

  Animated Tutorial
This tutorial demonstrates how to create and use the Survey activity.
 


Survey Authoring

All properties sheets contain three tabs:
* *Basic:* Which controls the _Content_ of the Activity.
* *Advanced:* Which controls the _Behaviour_ of the Activity.
* *Instructions:* Provides information on the structure of the activity.

The Survey tool supports branching based on [conditions. Click here for more info.|#conditions].

Basic Tab

!survey_basic.PNG|thumbnail! *View of the Survey Activity Basic Authoring tab.*

The Basic Tab for the Survey Activity allows authors to specify a title for the activity, and give learners a set of instructions for completing the activity:
* *Title:* All Activities have a web page title which is presented at the top of the activity page when displayed in the Learning Environment. This is _NOT_ the same title as the Title that can be set using the [Properties Inspector|authoring#propinspector].
* *Instructions:* All Activities have a text area that is presented beneath the title. This is where the main activity text to be displayed to learners is entered. The text can be formatted using the Rich-Text Editor. Image, Video, Audio and URL content can also be displayed in the Instructions area. Specifically for the Survey Activity, Authors should include information on the purpose of the survey, and how the data will be used.

* *Specific Features: Survey Questions List*
** This list specifies the actual questions contained in the survey.
** The links to create new questions are shown at the bottom of the page. To create a Single or Multiple choice question, click _"Add question"_. To add a text response question, click _"Add Free Text"_
** Use the _Green Arrows_ to change the order in which Survey questions display.
** Use the _Yellow Pencil_ to edit an existing Survey question.
** Select the _Red Cross_ to remove a Survey question from the list.

Advanced Tab

!survey_advanced.PNG|thumbnail! *View of the Survey Activity Advanced Authoring tab.*

* *Lock When Finished:* This option is available on all Activities.
** Enabling this option in _Survey_ means that when Learners answer all the questions and select _"Finish"_, they will be unable to revisit the activity and modify their answers. The Learners will still be able to view the activity and their responses by double-clicking the activity in the Learner Progress Bar.
** If this option is disabled, Learners will be able to return to the activity and change their responses by selecting the activity from the Learner Progress Bar.

* *Specific Feature:* *Show Survey on One Page*
** When enabled, this option forces all of the questions in the Survey list to display vertically stacked on the one page. Learners respond to the survey and are then shown a summary screen detailing their responses.
** If disabled, each Survey question will appear on its own seperate page within the activity. After responding to the last survey question, Learners are shown a summary screen detailing all of their responses.

* *Notify monitoring teachers...* This option when enabled will send an email to any sequence Monitors whenever a Learner completes a survey as part of a sequence. (This option requires entering email server details in [LAMS Configuration|LAMS Configuration#Email]. If this option does not work, contact your System Administrator.)

* *Add Notebook... :* This option is available on all Activities. Enabling this option creates a Notebook as part of the Activity, which Learner's can use to reflect on the activity just completed. The reflections are personal (ie: not shared with other learners).

Monitoring Survey

Summary Screen

!survSummary.PNG|thumbnail! *View of the Survey Monitoring Summary tab.*

The *Summary Tab* for _Survey_ allows Monitors to view and analyse the results of the Survey questions.

For each survey question, the monitor can choose to download either a Pie or Bar graph of the results.

Monitors can also download the results of the survey in a Spreadsheet format.

Instructions

!instructions.PNG|thumbnail! *View of the Monitoring Instructions tab.*

In the Authoring Environment, Authors can use the *Instructions Space* to attach support files for a specific activity, or leave comments for othe Monitors about how a given activity should be run.

These comments and files can be viewed from here - the *Instructions Tab.*

Edit Activity

Clicking the *Edit Activity* button opens a new screen identical to the _'Basic'_tab in the authoring environment. In the current version of LAMS (2.0.4), Editing can only be performed on activities that students +have not yet reached.+

Unlike *Live Edit*, this form of Editing can only modify the content of an activity, as opposed to the structure of a sequence.

Statistics

The *Survey Summary* screen simply displays the Learner group for which the sequence has been assigned, and the total number of Learners who have attempted the activity.

Branching Condition for Survey

The Survey Tool now supports *Text Based Conditions* (see [LDEV-1946@bugs]). This means that Learners can be assigned to [groups|lagrp11] or streamed along [branches|labranch21] according to their responses to a Survey Activity.

Adding a Text Based condition to a Survey Activity

* To add a new condition to a Survey, first click the new *Conditions Tab* at the top of the screen, then click *Add Condition*.
** A unique name must be given to each condition created for the activity. It's best practice to relate the name to what the condition is testing for, such as: _"Answered Blue"_ or _"Mentioned Oxygen"_.
* For each condition, there are several options for how to search the Learners responses:
** *Have all of these words:* will seperate the learners who have entered each of the given words as part of their response.
** *Have this exact wording:* will seperate the learners who have entered the exact phrase as part their response.
** *Have none of these words:* will seperate the learners who have mentioned *at least one* of the given words as part of their response.
** *Have none of these unwanted words*: seperates the learners who *have not* mentioned any of the given words.

* These rules can be used simultaneously, and also can be applied to one or more seperate questions.

Examples:


_Conditions can be very specific:_
To separate the learners who have replied with *Foo* and *Bar* in their response:

| have all these words:| foo bar |
| have this exact wording or phrasing: | |
| have one or more of these words: | |
| have none of these unwanted words: | |

_... less specific..._
To separate the learners who have replied with either *Foo* or *Bar*:

| have all these words:| |
| have this exact wording or phrasing: | |
| have one or more of these words: | foo bar |
| have none of these unwanted words: | |

_... and very complex!_
To separate the learners who have:
* replied *Foo*
* replied *Bat* or *Bar*
* but not replied with *Foobar*

| have all these words:| bat |
| have this exact wording or phrasing: | |
| have one or more of these words: | bat bar |
| have none of these unwanted words: | foobar |
