Setup a Survey

ASAP's Surveys are built for class followup questions and were intended to be very basic. You have the option to work with commonly used templates or to build a survey from scratch. These instructions will show you how to build a survey from scratch.

NOTE!  Not all question types are functional. Only use the question types that are listed in these notes.

From the left nav, select 1 Configure | Survey Config.


Click 2 Create Survey


Type a 3 name for your survey. All other portions of surveys are editable, but the title cannot be changed, so write your title carefully. Type a 4 Description for your survey. You can include any information that you want your respondents to see. If you want to require a login for the survey, select 5 If this survey requires a login. If you want to make the survey inactive, select 6 Deactivate. Select whether you want to 7 use a pre-existing template or create a blank survey. These instructions will go through creating a blank survey from scratch. Click 8 Save Settings.



Select the first 9 question type. When you are finished working on a question, click 10 Save Question (for each question) These instructions will show you how to use each type of question.



For each of the question types, you will have, at least, the following options: question type, is active, is required and save (saves the current question) back (goes back to the survey overview screen) and finish (completes the survey).

TEXT QUESTIONS

For a text question, select 11 Text. Text questions are probably the most straightforward questions. You ask a question and the respondent answers the question. Type the 12 question, select 13 is active if this will be an active question on the survey, and selectis required if an answer to this question is required and click 14 Save Question.



NOTE! The response field does not permit special characters, so your students will not be able to use them in their answers.

ESSAY QUESTIONS
For an essay question, select 15 Essay. Essay questions are very similar to text questions. The difference is that text questions give respondents a small field to write a response where essay questions give respondents a larger text box to compose a longer response. Type the 16 question, select 17 is active if this will be an active question on the survey, and selectis required if an answer to this question is required and click 18 Save Question.


MULTIPLE CHOICE QUESTIONS
For a multiple choice question, select 19 Multiple Choice. This kind of question will allow you to give the respondents statements/items that they may select by ticking the corresponding box.  Type the 20 question/statement, type the 21 choices (separated by an enter/return), select 22is active if this will be an active question on the survey, and selectis required if an answer to this question is required and click 23 Save Question.


MULTIPLE CHOICE (DROPDOWN) QUESTIONS
For a multiple choice (dropdown) question, select 24 Multiple Choice (Dropdown). This kind of question will allow you to give the respondents a series of responses/statements to select from a dropdown. Type the 25 question, the 26 choices (separated by a return), select 27is active if this will be an active question on the survey, and selectis required if an answer to this question is required and click 28 Save Question.
