Application: SharePoint

Surveys are a method of gathering information from individuals in a standardized way. Surveys can be used to gather feedback, evaluate, or to determine trends in a group. SharePoint offers a survey tool for TWU faculty, staff and students.

What does a SharePoint survey offer?
• Branching logic: depending on how a respondent answers, certain questions may or may not appear
• Many question types:
o Multiple choice
o Multiple answers
o Open response
o Rating/Likert scale
• Option to export data to Microsoft Excel
• Restrict number of responses per respondent
• User must be logged in to SharePoint (with portal login), so data is collected only from TWU population.
