If you would like to use a Questionnaire, there are three questionnaire types which define how response data is collated and who can edit and view responses. Decide which best meets your needs:

  1. Public questionnaires may be used across multiple Moodle courses and the responses are returned to the Moodle course where the questionnaire originates. Students within the Moodle course where the public questionnaire is created cannot answer and only those staff on the course where it originates can view the responses.
    If you construct a public questionnaire template remember all UCL Moodle editors will see it so it's best to give it an unambiguous title to prevent other users inadvertently using it – e.g. 'feedback questionnaire' is too vague – 'Module feedback for all 1st Year ChemXXXX courses' is better.
  2. Template questionnaires can be copied to any number of courses and then redefined in the course as a Private questionnaire.
  3. Privatequestionnaires allow course owners and administrators to see the data collated and also tailor the questions to a specific module or programme. This is useful where some new activities/resources have been introduced to a specific module and tutors are keen to get feedback on these. One disadvantage is that Private questionnaires make it harder (but not impossible) to collate and analyse data across a number of modules. This can be done by exporting each questionnaire's feedback to excel and collating manually.  We recommend using this type of questionnaire when undertaking individual module feedback.

Meeting the baseline

The UCL E-Learning Baseline suggests the following for Quality Assurance:

  • 10.1 Students can evaluate the module anonymously, including its online elements, e.g. via an end-of-module questionnaire.
  • 10.2 All stakeholders, including tutors, administrators and support staff, can contribute to the module/programme evaluation, including its online elements, at regular intervals (e.g. yearly, or at major reviews).
