In this course, author Chris Mattia helps educators create online courses that complement classroom-based instruction and foster student interaction using the free learning management system Moodle. The course details the basics of setting up a test environment, disseminating course information, creating forums, and assessing student progress. Tutorials on building course materials with Moodle's built-in HTML editor, preparing and posting various types of media, uploading assignments, and evaluating tests automatically are also included.
In the first question of our feedback activity when I ask the students about what activities they participated in. With one of those activities being SCUBA if the students did participate in that activity we want to be able to ask follow-up question to find out additional information about what they thought about the facilities for the SCUBA Diving program at the Island. So in order to add any follow-up questions we need to first create a page break within our feedback activity. So hit the dropdown menu and select Add a page break.
The page break block will show up down here just underneath of our question. Now let's go back up to the dropdown list and this time we're going to add another multiple choice question. We're going to make this another required question, and for the Question text we're going to type in Please rate your experience with our SCUBA Diving facilities. For the Label let's add SCUBA facilities. So we have a clear label list to what this particular question is asking about.
The Adjustment allows us to select whether or not we want the responses to be horizontal or vertical. In this case I'd like them to be vertical, and then we can select the type of multiple-choice question. In this case I'd like to go ahead and make this a multiple-choice single answer allowed dropdown list. That way the students get a simple dropdown list that will have all the options listed, but it will be a nice clean activity type. We don't want to analyze empty submissions and we do want Hide the "Not selected" item.
So we will go ahead and hit Yes for that one as well. Go ahead and scroll down a little bit and in the Multiple choice values this time we're going to list out each of the different types of ratings that we're going to give to our SCUBA facility. The first being Excellent. Simply hit Enter or Return and then Above Average, Enter or Return, Average, Enter or Return, Below Average, and finally Poor. In the dropdown menu for dependent item select ActivitiesParticipation. This is the label of the previous question.
The dependent value would be the name of the item from the list from the previous question that if the student selects that item this question will automatically appear. The dependent value that we want is SCUBA. Be sure to type the value exactly as you typed it in the previous question's Multiple choice values option. So in this case we're going to type in SCUBA in all caps. The Position item is going to show which position within our feedback activity that this particular question is going to appear.
Go ahead and click the Save question item and now we can see the preview as to what our feedback survey looks like. We have our first question asking about activities, then a page break and what will happen is depending on what the student selects here. if the student selects SCUBA this dependent follow-up question about the SCUBA facilities will appear next. If the student selects any other item from the list this question will simply be skipped and the next question will be presented to the student.
