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.
Now that we've seen two methods of creating custom surveys by either using the choice module or the feedback module. Now let's go ahead and add a standardized survey to our course to collect some information about the student's attitudes towards thinking and learning. To do this scroll down to the bottom of Week 1 and click the dropdown menu for Add an activity and select survey. We're going to have the students complete an ATLLS survey or attitudes towards teaching and learning. So for the Name simply type in ATTLS survey, for the survey type click the dropdown menu and here you can choose any one of several different types of standardized surveys.
In this case we're to choose the ATTLS or ATTLS 20 items survey. If we wanted to we could create additional instructions to provide to the students to let them know what it is they're taking and why. But in this case the standardized introduction provides all the information that we need. Go ahead and scroll down on the page and next we can set the group module since we're having each student take this survey for themselves, we're going to leave set to No groups, we do want Visibility to be Shown. Now we're going to leave the ID number blank, go ahead and click the Save and return to course button and when our page reloads go ahead and scroll back down to the bottom of Week 1 and let's use the Move right tool to move the ATLLS survey and underneath of our listing of assignments.
Now let's go ahead and look at the survey itself, so click on the link ATLLS survey and here in the instruction we let the students know what the purpose of the questionnaire is and that there are no right or wrong answers and that this will not affect their overall assessment within the course. All the questions are listed out here on the left-hand side is a radio button that by default is set to not yet answered and then a range of answers from strongly disagree all the way to strongly agree that the student can go in and simply select their particular answer for each question.
Up here in the up here in the upper right corner we have a link for us as the instructor that shows how many surveys have been submitted by our students. Currently no survey responses have been submitted, we go ahead and click on the link anyway and we can see what other options that will have when we go into look at all of our results. By default, you're taken to the Summary page, you can go over to Scale to look at additional information about how the student answered all their questions, you can go into a list of all the questions that were answered in order by all students.
We can look to detailed information for each participant in our course to see how they responded to each survey question, and then we have a download link, or we can go in and we can download all of the results into a variety of different formats, so that we can do additional analysis of them either in a stats package such as Microsoft Excel, SPSS or any other stat package. Let's go ahead and return back to our course looks good in return backdoor course by clicking on the BIOL432 link. Now you should have a pretty good feel for the different types of tools that are available to you with in Moodle 2, such as choice which allows you to ask a single question in a multiple-choice format our feedback survey which allow you to create as many questions and types of questions as you would like to create your own custom survey or using the survey tool to administer one of many standardized survey tools that are available to you inside of Moodle.
