If I wanted to crate a survey in Canvas and then export the data to survey monkey, would that work?
Thank you everyone!
I spoke to Canvas ADMIN and it seems that the Google Form is the best way
to go about this.
I appreciate all the feedback. Ya'all are awesome.

sharla, welcome to the Canvas Community. I've never actually tried importing data into SurveyMonkey, but I use it a lot to conduct survey's and your question got me curious. I did some checking and found the following resource - Can I upload or import a survey? The important part of this resource is the following -
...if you gathered responses offline, there isn't a way to upload or import import responses in bulk or a spreadsheet of responses—but you can manually enter each response into SurveyMonkey, as long as you create the survey in SurveyMonkey first.
Based on this it seems like if you want the data to be in SurveyMonkey it would be in your best interests to create the survey there and then add the link to your course.
In addition to this, if you do use the Survey tool in Canvas, here is how you can view and export the results - How do I view survey results in a course?
Hope this helps!
Thank you for that help Kona Jones.
This course is open and self-paced, so the idea of manually submitting
responses would be tedious. I wanted to lock the modules so that it forced
survey completion, but it seems the only way to do this is to use a Canvas
survey, not a link to an outside survey -- otherwise, that would be such an
Hi sharla yates
Here is another technique that would permit you to collect survey data (in fact, it is automatically collected for you), and lock the remaining module content or a subsequent module until the survey is completed.
Embed a Google Form in an assignment, and set module restrictions based on completion of that assignment. Here is how I did it............
I hope this helps,
Thanks! Does google forms easily load into Survey Monkey? Is that the
advantage of doing it this way?

I'm sorry, Sharla, I missed that part of your question.
No, it does not, but you won't need it to. A Google Form automatically feeds its data to a Responses spreadsheet. That spreadsheet can be downloaded as a CSV file, which can be saved in Excel, and manipulated to your heart's content.

Was there some reason you need it to go to SurveyMonkey?
I don't have to push it through Survey Monkey if it's easy to access and analyze in Google Forms (which I assume it is).
Thanks for this!
So what about this...
1. Create the survey in SurveyMonkey, on the last page of the survey (make sure this is a different page than the survey questions) provide a thank you and a special code - would be the same code for everyone, but that's ok. Also make sure to remind people to write down the code and go back and enter it into the quiz question in Canvas.
2. Create a Quiz. Create a numerical answer quiz question and include the link to the survey and directions that they should enter in the code from the end of the survey as the answer. This way when students enter in the number and click submit they will get the 1 point (or whatever) for getting the right answer and could then move on in the course.
OR, if you don't want to go the code route you could use the same basic set-up, but using a multiple choice question and just ask the students to select the answer option of Yes, I've completed the survey once they are done. That would still accomplish the same thing as the first option, but wouldn't require the students enter a code.
Here's an example of how each question would look. Question 1 is the numerical answer quiz question and Question 2 is the multiple choice quiz question.
Love the code idea. If the Google Forms doesn't work for any reason, I'm going to try this one.
