How to setup survey/poll tool (desktop version) with anonymous answers visible to students

Have provided Faculty with information re: conducting polls via Conferences,

but in case there may be other possible solutions - Faculty would like to:


  • Organize students into groups of 2-4, using Canvas Groups
  • Within each group, we want to set up an online survey tool/assignment, which the students can respond to each week
  • The survey tool should be a Likert scale question (i.e., "rate from 1 to 10")
  • The answers should be anonymous to everyone in the group--but not anonymous for faculty members.


More information from Faculty:

  • I've divided students into groups, set up a survey and added it to the question bank
  • The next step (I think) is to create a custom survey question set for each student in every group
  • The three (e.g.) questions in the question bank could comprise the question set for each student
    • (other students could then respond to those questions for each of their group members)


Any tips/suggestions are welcome - thank you for your time and help with this.
