Gathering Blackboard survey data
STEP 6. Administer the survey
You can have students complete the survey together during class, provided you have computers with internet access in your classroom. Alternatively, using modify the survey options, you can create an announcement by selecting yes to the question, "Do you want to create an announcement for this Quiz?" You can set a start and end date for students to complete the survey, preferably allowing seven to ten days.
Remember that response rates for online surveys improve if you give periodic reminders. Blackboard informs a student when he or she has successfully submitted a survey and places a check by the student's name in the instructor's gradebook.
