How to create and use a Survey activity in Moodle

The Survey activity module is a course activity that provides a number of verified survey instruments, including COLLES (Constructivist On-Line Learning Environment Survey) and ATTLS (Attitudes to Thinking and Learning Survey), which have been found useful in assessing and stimulating learning in online environments. Teachers can use these to gather data from their students that will help them learn about their class and reflect on their own teaching.

  1. Turn on editing for the course
  2. In the section you wish to add an activity, use the "Add an activity" drop down menu
  3. Select the Survey activity
