How do I preview a survey?

Updated Jul 21, 2021

This article explains how to preview a survey. So you can see what a student sees. 

The 'Student view' function in Brightspace does not work for a survey. Please use the preview button in the survey itself.

If you want to see what the survey will look like for students, you can view a sample of the survey. Just follow these steps:

  • Click on Course Tools in the navbar of your course
  • Click on Surveys
  • Click on the down arrow next to the Survey you want to view
  • Click on Preview

Now a preview of the survey will appear. This is what a student will see when they open the survey. You can also fill in your own answers in the preview and submit these by clicking on Submit Survey at the bottom of the page.  These answers are not saved and you cannot look back at them.

  • Click on Exit Preview if you want to leave the preview.
