Publishing grades through VU Collaborate is easy once the grade items are associated with the required assessments. Assessments can be in class presentations, online discussions, quizzes, reports, and more. Grades can also be automatically published to students or can be done manually. You can now get started on a survey in VU Collaborate too. Before your students depart, create a survey to capture their opinions with real data about any aspect of the course.
Ensure that your assessment activities are linked to your grade items and that your evaluations have been published. If grades relate to quizzes, ensure that the Auto Export to Grades setting is ticked.
There is a chance that the grade item may be hidden from students’ view. Please check the visibility settings of your grade item.
Creating a survey can be done by clicking on the Space Admin tab and then Surveys within the VU Collaborate Space. Click on the New Survey button and proceed to add your questions. If you want to create more than one survey, you could build your questions in the Question Library first.
The Survey tool uses the same question types as the Quizzes tool, including Likert questions, short answer, long answer and multiple choice questions. See how to create a survey with this guide. You can also make survey results anonymous by selecting the make results anonymous checkbox.
Once a student has submitted their survey responses, they are unable to review their submission or make further changes. A new submission will have to be made.
All staff are enrolled in VU Collaborate Essentials so you can see how different things look from a student point of view. There is also information and communication tools for you to learn more about VU Collaborate and the other learning tools. By going into this Space and selecting Assessments and Surveys, you will be able to see an example of a survey including questions designed to collect space evaluation data.
