  • Teachers can create Surveys for members of their Classes (Students and/or Parents) or special Groups (e.g. Clubs) if they are the superuser for a Group created in EdLine.
    • Create surveys in a folder on an EdLine Class page and use Multiple Posting to post on additional Class pages.
    • Create in Contents folder or in a subfolder of Contents (e.g. Assignments or Tests), or on Calendar
      • Note: Surveys created in Contents or a Contents subfolder can also be posted to the Calendar. You do not have to create the Survey in the Calendar folder for it to appear on the Calendar.
    • Surveys may be used in a variety of ways:
      • Pre-assessment, Formative Assessment, Summative Assessment, Practice Tests (graded or ungraded)
      • Exit Tickets for computer labs/mobile lab lessons

  • Under Title, Summary, and Date, you can make the Survey or Form appear on the Calendar by specifying Calendar Event Recurrance dates.

    • Add the link to an Email 
    • Hyperlink the URL on another Web page (e.g. teacher Wiki) 
    • Hyperlink the URL on a document (e.g. student handout accessed via Students drive)

    • Specify a date range for access to the Survey or Form; the Survey/Form will only be visible/accessible to sumbitters during those dates.
    • Keep the Survey or Form hidden until you are finished building it and are ready for users to access it (select Hide Completely
  • If you are including a Handout in a Survey that may be accessed from home, be mindful that not all users have MS Office.
    • Use PDF format for handouts that will be read only, and do not need to be edited by users.
    • Use RTF format for MS Word handouts that will edited and/or Handed In through the Survey.  
  • You will NOT be able to modify the survey once submissions are received; to modify after submissions received, you would have to delete the submissions. You could export the data for those submitted responses before deleting if needed.
