Blackboard Surveys

What Is It?

Blackboard Surveys allow instructors to measure student knowledge, gauge progress, and gather information from students.  Survey results are anonymous, but instructors can see if a student has completed a survey and view aggregate results for each survey question. All results can be seen in the Grade Center. At this time, surveys can only be created in the Original Course View.


  • Gauge student knowledge without scoring
  • Easily add, edit, or reuse questions from within the Blackboard environment
  • Aggregate all results
  • Add surveys directly to content areas within your Blackboard course


Surveys must be deployed within a Blackboard course.
