we are working aiming to include it in 2.6.
Future major features
Survey module refactoring for Moodle 2.5
although there is no release yet, you can start testing the available status of the Survey 2 module downloading it from Github: https://github.com/kordan/moodle-mod_survey. There is only 1 branch for master, so you should install the module on the current development version of Moodle. Please remember to remove the standard survey module prior to install Survey 2.
In the Moodle developer wiki site there is also a starting point about Survey 2 documentation: http://docs.moodle.org/dev/Survey_user_docs
Just saw this about the new survey module and downloaded the current development version from github and installed it on my Moodle 2.6 dev site after removing the default survey module.
As teacher it works great so far, as I am able to develop and answer survey questions. However, as a student I am unable to see the questions, only the Pause and Submit buttons when I click on the Attempt tab. If the student clicks the Pause button, the teacher and student will see an in progress attempt. If the student clicks the Submit button, the teacher and student will see a closed attempt. But there is noting to see in the attempts.
Changing to the different Advanced Permissions did not make any difference.
I noticed the in the access.php file that none of the capabilities contain any student entries. Maybe that is why students cannot answer questions.
I am using Moodle 2.6dev (Build: 20130514).
Keep up the good work on the development,
thanks for testing the Survey 2 module and giving your feedback. You have right, you spotted a regression caused by some internal changes to the module. The cause is now known and hopefully the fix should be available shortly. I'll follow up in this forum when the git repo will be updated.
the github repo is now updated and the regression you spotted should not be present anymore. Feel free to report any issue you may find during testing.
Works great for the student role now. I will continue to try it out this summer as time permits.
I'm really excited about this new version of the survey tool. One small feature request. Can it be set that if they have not completed the survey, that an automatic e-mail is sent to them to remind them to fill it in (a conditional activity with a difference)
