How do I create a survey?

The Tests & Quizzes tool may be set up to deliver surveys as well as other types of assessments. Survey question types may be added to a new or existing assessment. There are two types: a basic survey and a matrix of choices survey.

Tip: If you are delivering a survey, you may wish to set the assessment to anonymous when publishing the item, so that your survey responses will be gathered anonymously. See How do I view and modify the settings of an assessment? for more information on delivery options.
