How do I view survey results in a course?

How do I view survey results in a course?

You can see graded or ungraded survey results after one or more users have taken the survey.

Notes:

  • Graded surveys display in the Gradebook and SpeedGrader, while ungraded surveys do not.
  • The Item Analysis report is not available for surveys.
  • You can filter survey statistics using the first 10 sections of your course.

Comments

I don't believe "Show student survey results" shows up in new quizzes in Canvas. How can I bulk download students essay-style responses to the quiz for analysis? Thanks

Hi @creme-brulee,

Currently, it's not possible to create a survey using the New Quizzes tool. It's also not currently possible to download question responses from New Quiz quizzes. As a workaround for this, you could use Classic Quizzes to create a survey (even if you've enabled New Quizzes for your course). We also have a couple feature ideas that related to what you were wanting to do (True Surveys and Download Essay Questions), if you'd like to support those ideas, you can kudo them and/or comment on them. If you have any further questions, let us know.
