How do I set up a survey? How do I view the results?
Creating a survey is a two-step process. (1) create the survey with the “Tests, Surveys, and Pools” tool, and then (2) deploy it with the “Create Assessment” button in a content area, such as “Course Documents”.
(1) Create survey
To create a survey click on the “Tests, Surveys, and Pools” link under “Course Tools” in the Course Management panel on the left side of the page. Then select Surveys from the middle of the page.
I copied a course from several years ago, and now I can't delete old announcements.
If the announcement was originally posted by someone (perhaps a GTF who assisted you in the course in years past) who has left the UO, the original poster's account may be disabled, which prevents anyone else from deleting the announcement. Send email to firstname.lastname@example.org giving the name of the course and the announcement you need deleted, and we can help you fix this.
Any feedback entered with a grade is visible to the student when they view the grade even if a journal is no longer visible. As long as the Grade Center column for the journal is visible they can see the feedback along with their grade.
Ask your students to click on the "My UO" tab, then "My Grades" in the "Tools" area, then your class. They should be able to see their grade along with your feedback to them.
Blogs and journals offer a way for the instructors to encourage students to write and reflect on what they are learning in class, and many instructors find them to be a valuable way to assess class participation. The primary difference between the two is that blogs are more oriented towards multiple contributors in a public space, whereas journals are personal to the student and are only viewable by the instructor and the writer.
