What are surveys in Brightspace?

Brightspace, Help

The surveys tool in Brightspace allows learners to give feedback on course content and to share their ideas through a variety of question and answers. This helps the instructor to better understand how the course is functioning for each student. Structurally, surveys are very similar to quizzes, but they are not graded; they’re purely for learner and instructor reflection.   

Any open surveys will appear in the Survey List, which can be accessed by selecting Surveys from the Course Tools dropdown menu.
