Surveys: Accessing and Reading Results in Blackboard
Surveys in online classes are similar to tests in Blackboard, but they are not graded and are intended to gain feedback from students. The surveys are anonymous and results can be viewed collectively in the Full Grade Center. Surveys are created like tests, giving the same options under Create Question.
The question type “Opinion Scale/Likert” is best used for surveys. When Opinion Scale/Likert questions are created, the answer choices are filled in and vary from Strongly Agree to Strongly Disagree(the text in the answer fields can be changed).
After a survey is deployed and students begin to complete the survey, results can be accessed from the Full Grade Center. Click the chevron for the survey column and choose Attempts Statistics.
At the top of the Survey Statistics page, this will indicate how many attempts are being calculated into each questions Percent Answered. If a student does not respond to a question, the percent towards that answer will go to Unanswered so it will not skew calculations.
Results for Surveys cannot be viewed individually by student. However, an instructor can give feedback to an individual student and view their time stamp if needed. In the Full Grade Center, in the grade cell for a student, click the chevron and then “Attempt (Date)” to view the Survey Information and feedback area.
