- What is the difference between a practice quiz and an ungraded survey?
- When should I use a practice quiz or an ungraded survey in my course?
In Canvas, both Practice Quizzes and Ungraded Surveys are similar in that they are both types of quizzes that do not impact the student's final grade. However, there are a few differences between the two:
Purpose: The purpose of a Practice Quiz is to allow students to practice taking quizzes in Canvas and to provide them with feedback on their performance. In contrast, the purpose of an Ungraded Survey is to gather information or feedback from students on a particular topic, without affecting their final grade.
Quiz Settings: Practice Quizzes are created using the quiz feature in Canvas and have similar settings to graded quizzes, such as timed options and question banks. Ungraded Surveys, on the other hand, are created using the survey feature in Canvas and have options such as multiple choice and likert scale questions.
Feedback: Practice Quizzes provide students with immediate feedback on their answers and can include explanations or hints for each question. In contrast, Ungraded Surveys typically do not provide feedback to students, as they are designed to gather information or opinions from the students.
In summary, both Practice Quizzes and Ungraded Surveys in Canvas are useful tools for teachers. Practice Quizzes are great for providing students with a way to practice taking quizzes in Canvas and to receive feedback on their performance. Ungraded Surveys are useful for gathering information or feedback from students, without impacting their final grade.
