You can use the Moodle Feedback activity to conduct surveys for the purpose of collecting feedback from students. These surveys can be done anonymously or can be attributed depending on the purpose. The Feedback surveys can be used in many different ways, but are most commonly used as pre-course surveys, mid-course evaluations and end-of-course evaluations.

Different kinds of feedback in a course

Your feedback survey can host a variety of questions including choice (one answer or multiple answers), short or long answer, numerical, and more. 

The following video gives step-by-step instructions for adding the Feedback activity to your course.

Adding a feedback survey based on a template

Concordia currently offers ready-made templates for a Pre-Course Survey and Mid-Course surveys, which can be edited once uploaded. The following video gives step-by-step instructions on how to add a survey to your course based on a ready-made template and edit the questions.
