Frequently Asked Questions

  1. What if I need to ask more than one question?
    For multiple question surveys, try the Questionnaire Activity or the Feedback Activity.
  2. What do the limits on the options mean?
    The limits refer to the number of students who are allowed to select the option (if only 1 person should select this option, set it to "1"). Be sure to set the option "Limit the number of responses allowed" to "Yes."
  3. What if I don't want students to see the results of the Choice activity?
    Go to "Edit settings." Under "Results," you can modify the privacy options. There is an option "Do not publish results to students" in the "Publish results" drop-down menu.
  4. I want my students to choose their groups, is the Choice Activity a good tool for this?
    No. You will want to use the Group Choice Activity.
