Surveys and getting to the information submitted.
Fairly new to Moodle.
Basically been tasked to create an online survey of sorts. Basically a list of questions which the students answer. I assume this is fairly easy to do in moodle which we already have set up. The survey is mainly going to be based on what extra curricular activities students get upto and what they do in their out of school time.
Anyway once the survey is taken I will need to make some reports (such as most popular activites, how many students do 2 or more activities etc etc) based on the surveys. So are there tools to do this as well or will I need to take the information directly out of the database using SQL queries?
Also are there modules that come as standard with moodle to do this or will I need to install one myself.
Thanks in advance...

First - ignore the so -called "survey "in Moodle -it just has standard questions and doesn't allow you to edit them at all. I've disabled ours to avoid confusion. YOu need to download and then install the non-standard questionnaire module which will do all you want. We use it a lot for suchlike. YOu can then download the answers tothe survey in text format to import into Excel and manipulate how you like -simple. (edit: there is a shorter, less powerful, Feedback module, which you might like to look at too -also non-standard - but I'd go for the questionnaire for what you want to do)

We use the questionnaire quite a bit - you can find it here
Alternatively Survey Monkey is a bit more user friendly.

Survey Monkey looks a little bit more like what we're after. I also cqame across something called Lime Servey as well which we could install on our web server. Lime Survey also allows you to create "invites" based on active directory which is cool.
I'll give all three (moodle, lime, monkey) a look over over half term and see which one takes my fancy.

Hi Sam ... We use Lime Survey and it is superb... very easy to configure.. lots of output and collating options etc... If you want to PM me with some questions I'll get one setup for you and you can have a play ... happy to give you an admin login so you can export results as well if you like

Loads of good advice on the technology to use but try to make sure that whoever comes up with the questions doesn't go over the top! There are some people who think more means better; it almost never does. KISS applies to surveys but with the first S meaning "short and simple" :-)

Probably best to do it on here because it might help others in the same situation!

Can you do it through AD or CSV perhaps?
Also is it easy enough to set up groups for example results by year group or by class?
Thanks in advance
