How do I create a "Public" Survey?
Instructors can create a survey that can be accessed by anyone inside or outside of the course site via a URL.
Public surveys are by default "anonymous". Users do not log in to access the survey, so there is no name associated with any individual survey submitted.
Go to Tests & Quizzes.
This displays the Test & Quizzes page.
Note: The Test & Quizzes tool is not a default tool. Yo may have to dd the tol to your tool list using Site Editor / Edit Tools. (See: How do I add or remove tools on my Course/Project site? )
Use the "Select a question type" dropdown box to select a Survey Matrix question type.
Note: You may add any type of question to a survey. if you add a question that requires you to select a "correct" answer, mark any answer as correct and under "Settings" do not grade the survey.
For details on question types see:
- How do I add a Survey question to a Survey?
- How do I add a Survey Matrix question to a sSurvey?
- How do I add a Short Answer / Essay question to an assessment?
Selecting the Survey Matrix question displays the Edit Survey question page.

Assign the survey matrix question to a Part of the survey and/or a Question Pool

Provide Feedback. (Optional)
Feedback is optional text available for users to view after the survey is submitted. This feedback will be released to users immediately after submitting the survey if the "Settings" for the survey includes "Feedback upon Submission", "Release Questions and the following" and "Question-level Feedback".(See: "How do I Edit the Settings for an assessment?")
