Creating and editing surveys

Click Settings > Surveys.

You can also get here from the shortcut in the surveys dashboard (preview, edit, schedule and send surveys).

Click the New Survey button at the top right to create a new survey from scratch, or click the edit icon (pencil) next to an existing survey to edit it.


From here, you can edit every aspect of the survey: it's title, survey type, whether or not the results are shared back to participating students and the content of the questions themselves.


Any questions marked as required will be highlighted red, as in the example above, to make it easy when scrolling through a long list of questions to identify which are required and which are optional.

Questions can be reordered by clicking the up and down arrows, or deleted with the trash icon.


Surveys can be broken into sections. It is recommended that 360 surveys are broken into sections, which you can think of as a skill or trait (e.g. Teamwork or Competency) since this will create a powerful report for the survey results, breaking down student progress across specific traits. This article explains how 360 survey reporting works.

Question Types

The following question types require you to enter options that users will select when completing the survey: Dropdown List (selected above), Radio Buttons and Checkboxes. In the above example, this is the Strongly Agree, Somewhat Agree, etc. list. Each option has a point value that can be assigned to it, which is used for charting the results and averaging in the reporting if you select that this question should be averaged.

Single Line Text and Multiple Line Text are just that: use single line when you want to constrain the students response to a single line of text and multiple line when you want a paragraph or more.

Question Options

  • Required: setting a question to required means the survey cannot be submitted until this question is answered.
  • Included in Average: includes the value entered for this question in the averages for 360 Survey Reports and the Survey Dashboard.
  • Results Release: option only available in 360 peer evaluations.  The response will be released back to the user targeted by the question. For example, in a 360 peer review, the student being reviewed can see the results of their peers' feedback. These results can be set to be anonymous (select Anonymize on release, as pictured below).
    • Note that anonymous settings apply to the entire survey, not a single question.
