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.
The first question in our custom feedback activity that we want the students to answer is one that would allow them to select each of the different activities that they participated in while they were on the island. This is the multiple-choice type of question that'll allow the students to select multiple answers. So make sure you're inside of the feedback activity, you're on the Edit question tab and then in the Add questions to activity dropdown menu select Multiple choice. We want to require all students to answer this question, so check the box for Required.
In the Question field enter in the question that we want to ask the student, Please select all of the activities that you participated in while at the MRC or Marine Research Center. For the label we would normally put in some kind of note designating the type of activity that we're doing. So for this label we'll type in Activities Participation. For the Adjustment, here we can select vertical or horizontal and this will denote how we want the optional answers to show up underneath of our question.
In this case I like to have this type of question to have the answers listed out vertically to make a little bit easier to read, so we'll leave that set to vertical. Next is the Multiple-choice type. We want to make sure that we select multiple-choice multiple answers, this way students can select multiple different activities that they participated in. The next two options Do not analyze empty submits. We want to set that to Yes, because we don't want any analysis set to any responses that are left open. And also Hide the "Not selected" item, we want to make sure that that's set to Yes also, because we know all of our student participated in at least one of the activities that we're going to have within our list.
Go ahead and scroll down and here in the Multiple-choice values field we want to go ahead and type in a list of all the different activities that we want to show up as options. Now to that a type in these activities we simply type in the name of the activity in the first case Swimming and then simply hit Enter or Return on your keyboard to go to the line and type in the next activity. Snorkeling hit Enter or Return then type in Scuba and make sure you type in SCUBA in all upper case hit Enter or Return and the Hiking.
Now it's important that you have the item in here listed SCUBA, because we're going to have a follow-up question to this to be able to rate the facilities and we're going to have to select this particular name. So come down here a little bit further and our next item dependent item, this question is not dependent on any other questions, but the next question that we do add will be dependent on this one. So we're not going to set this here and we're not going to set a dependent value. For Position, Position is simply listing out which position with in our overall feedback questionnaire that were to have this particular question appear in that list.
So this is all the settings we want to save on this one, so hit the Save question button and here we can begin seeing a preview as to what our survey is going to look like. In the next movie we'll go ahead and add a dependent question.
