Learn@Illinois Moodle - Choosing a Student Response Tool
Do you need to put your students into presentation or discussion groups? Sign up for office hours? Give mid-term feedback? Choosing between the Choice, Feedback, Group Choice, Questionnaire, and Scheduler can be difficult because there is quite a bit of overlap in functionality. This guide should assist you in choosing which is best for your purposes.

I want my students to sign up for group presentation time slots. There are just 5 options but I don't want more than 3 people to sign up for each.
I want my students to sign up for office hours. I want to set up 15 minute time slots with 5 minutes of buffer any Tuesday or Thursday afternoon all semester.
I want to ask several open and closed-ended questions about the course as midterm feedback. I would like students to be able to respond anonymously, but to receive a grade for completing the survey.
I want students to be split into discussion groups. I want each person in the group to choose a different discussion topic. I don't want more than one person in the same group to have the same topic.
I want my students to self-select a project group based on topics of interest.
