How to: Add a Feedback activity

The Feedback tool allows you to create and conduct surveys to collect feedback. Unlike the Survey tool it allows you to write your own questions, rather than choose from a list of pre-written questions and unlike the Quiz tool, you can create non-graded questions. The Feedback activity could be used for course evaluations outside the National Student Survey.

Adding a Feedback activity to your module 

  1. In your module click on the 'Turn editing on' button (top right) 
  2. Go to the section you would like the activity to appear and click on the + Add an activity or resource hyperlink
  3. Then click on the 'Feedback' activity

4. Fill in the "Name" and "Description" fields and adjust any of the settings outlined below.

5. When finished, click on the 'Save and return to module'

Giving the feedback activity a name and description

6. From your main Moodle page, click the 'Turn editing off' button in the top right
