This Week's Faculty Question

Category Quizzes and Surveys

Question: I would like to create a mandatory survey for each student group to complete. How can I do this in Quercus? 

Answer: Surveys can be made by creating a quiz in your course. Next, navigate to "Quizzes" and edit the quiz you have just created. Using the quiz options, set it as an "ungraded survey". You may now set up the questions for your survey.

To make the survey mandatory, you would need to make it a requirement in your module.

Quercus currently does not support group submissions for quizzes and surveys. As such, each student will have to complete and submit the survey on their own.
