(NOTE: This is so that your Feedback survey will not be immediately available to your students as soon as you create it, and will continue to be accessed as long as the course you've made it available to.)

  1. Personalize the feedback activities in the feedback settings on the right hand side.
  2. Select Save and Display once finished.

Send students to the article Submitting a Feedback Article for assistance on submitting to this activity.



For more information on course feedback surveys, read the following documentation from Moodle Docs. Note that the documentation does not show the SNAP Theme, but the functionality of the settings is the same. All links will open in a new window.
