New Survey Feature
By Barbara Bray    September 19, 2006 -- 03:50 PM

Would you like a survey feature in My eCoach? Yes or No.

Guess what? Itís here. We created a survey tool that can stand-alone or be part of a project. Just click Surveys on the left navigation bar to create your own.

You may be invited to take a survey. We would like to invite you to take our Fall 06 Survey to give us feedback on the direction of the My eCoach community. This way you can see how it looks. The survey is anonymous unless you share your name. The survey is for members and those who have used My eCoach. You can also get to this survey by going to your Survey Home to My eCoach Staff Surveys and click Take Survey.

When people have responded, you will see a chart and the number of respondents. If this is your survey, click on the key to edit access. You can make this survey available to one or more people you invite, to team(s), or to the public. Some people are creating surveys for evaluations and to link to from their blogs or projects for their students. Each survey you publish has several question types. The results appear in a list, bar chart, and number of results.

Any comments about the survey feature are welcome here.

The survey tool allowed me to immediately receive feedback from my BTSA teachers following a training we offered instructing teachers on how to effectively use eCoach. It took less than 5 minutes to create a survey with 6 questions. I used mostly short answer and yes, no formats. Very, very useful. We plan on using the results for our program review process.

Questions: Can the survey be longer than 10 questions? How long will the survey results remain accessible to the Survey administrator?

You can add as many questions as you want and keep the survey as long as you want to keep it. You can change the access level so it is only available for you, unpublish it so only you see it, or make it available to whoever you want to make it available as long as you would like.

That's why we wanted to have a survey tool in our program: so you can have more choices and options.

This was really cool with my group at training. I created a simple survey for them and their first question was how to use this in their classrooms. We explored the possibilities of using it and giving the link to participants and they were very excited! You must check this one out!

We just opened the survey to public only. What this means is that you can create a survey that you can share with your students, parents, public, and not have it appear in the community area. The author is the only one who can viewand use the reports. This is great if you want personal information on the surveys but don't want others to see the reports.
