Snap Survey Software How-to: Create a Course Evaluation Survey for Multiple Courses

Learn how to create a common course evaluation survey for multiple courses with Snap Survey Software

We have created a worksheet describing how you can send student respondents to a course evaluation survey, which they complete once for each course they have completed. When a student has completed an course evaluation, that version is marked as completed and no longer available to the student.

All the responses are analyzed together, so you can make direct comparisons between evaluations of different courses, years, etc. This is done by linking a common course evaluation survey (also known as an iterative survey or a combined survey) to a database that lists all the courses that a student has completed. Snap WebHost, our survey management and analysis system, then provides each student with the course evaluation surveys appropriate to them. Continue reading

Give Survey Respondents the Option of Choosing an ‘Other’ Response

Give survey respondents the options to choose ‘Other’ or ‘Other, please specify’ as a survey question response option

No matter what type of survey you are conducting, be it a course evaluation, health assessment, customer satisfaction survey, or any type of research survey, there will always be a need for questions that include an ‘Other’ or ‘Other, please specify’ response option. When developing your survey, do your best to create answer options that are as complete as possible, but always include the option for the respondent to select ‘Other’ or ‘Other, please specify’ so they can provide their own response option.
