To see which students have completed the survey
Once the module has ended and the survey has been completed by as many students as possible, you can access the data via the gradebook.
CONTROL PANEL> GRADEBOOK
You will see a column for the module questionnaire (subtitled ‘survey’). A green tick will appear for every student that has completed the questionnaire and submitted it. A padlock icon indicates that the student has looked at, but not completed the questionnaire. You will not be able to retrieve partial data from these attempts, so contact the students and ask them to finish the survey.
To view the summary of results:
Click on heading for the column for the module questionnaire (subtitled ‘survey’), then choose ‘ASSESSMENT ATTEMPT DETAILS’. This will show you how many students answered the survey and give percentage scores for each answer.
For simplicity and a record of the survey this page can be printed off.
Alternatively, if you wish to download the raw data for the survey, you can manipulate the results in Excel to produce an overall score out of 5 for each question.
To download the raw data
From the GRADEBOOK, click on heading for the column for the module questionnaire (subtitled ‘survey’), then choose ‘DOWNLOAD RESULTS’. Save the file to your computer.
To convert to scores
Open the downloaded results in Excel. Copy and paste the formulas from the example spreadsheet into your dataset for each question.
