How do I view the results of a survey?

  • Navigate to Course Tools in the navbar of your course.
  • Click on Course Admin
  • Click Surveys (under subheading Assessment).
  1. Click the fold-out arrow next to the survey of which you want to see the results.
  2. Click Statistics.

If the survey is not anonymous, you can view the attempts of each participant separately. You can also view an overview.

  1. You will navigate to the Users tab automatically. Here you can view the response of each student. Click Attempts (second tab) if you want to search for a specific attempt.
  2. Use the search options to find a filled-out survey of a specific student or to find a participant of a specific group.
  3. Click a filled-out survey in the table to open the results.
  4. Click Completion Summary to get an overview of all surveys that student has filled out.
  5. Click View Overall Results to get an overview of all attempts made by all students.

If the survey is anonymous, you will be navigated directly to the Overall Results page. You cannot see the results of an individual attempt.

With a completion summary you will see the given answers for all questions (see example above). For closed question you will see the scale for each possible answer and then a percentage indicating how many times that answer has been given. For open questions you will see all given answers. When you look at the results of a specific student or attempt, you will see the answers the student has given to each question.  

You can allow students multiple attempts to fill out a survey. However, this can give a distorted image of how many students have actually filled out the survey in the overview of all results (Overall Results). That is why it is advised to give students one attempt (Single attempt).  

Do you want to disclose the results for students, send them to a co-worker or print them? Make a statistical report. You can read more in the following article: How do I create a report of a survey?
