Learn@Illinois allows the instructor to gather information from their students through a few different activities, but picking the right one can be difficult, so you can use this guide to choose the activity that best suits your needs. 

Surveying Activities

  • Survey - This activity is meant to gather information about how the course is run, so it has surveys assessing a course already loaded into the activity. Therefore, this will not be useful if you intend to create your own survey to administer to your students.
  • Quiz - This activity is useful to gather data in an easy-to-view manner, but to set it up every question has to have a grade value attached to it, which may cause students some anxiety.
  • Feedback - This is useful for quick surveying of students and it is anonymous, so if you want the students to feel more comfortable while filling out a certain survey, Feedback would protect the identity of everybody who would respond to it. Additionally, the activity does the analysis for you and displays it on the fourth module.
  • QuestionnaireThis activity, like Feedback, can be anonymous, and it gives back the results to the students so they can have access to their answers.
