Course feedback

Blocks ::: block_coursefeedback
Maintained by Picture of Jan EberhardtJan Eberhardt
This Block intends to give the system administrators a tool for forced evaluation of a course (or other facts). System administrators can define a set of textual questions, which can be rated from students.
Latest release:
188 sites
39 fans
Current versions available: 2

Responses are collected in course context and can be seen by trainers and non-editing trainers. Access to the questions and the results are given by a simple block. It differs the approach of pre-defined "Feedback" in that way, that a block can be made sticky and feedbacks are optinal for teachers (they may use it or not).

If you want to force the evaluation, you have to make this block sticky on each course page. See the github project page or README file for further instructions.

    We're using this Plugin on 3.1 without trouble and have been using it on 3.0 before. So there shouldn't be a problem with the upcoming versions as well.

    I present a new feature in Version 2.1 - overall course ratings can be shown on the block now. :3

    Promising but restrictive, would have been better if the scale could be changed from the plug-in setting.

    Yeah... I know. When we made it it had to ready quick... And now it would be too much to Change that (if I would really go on this it should be much more than just a scaleable scale ;)

    Seems, that you don't have permission to edit survey question. If you do, then at least an link to the settings would be shown. You can check, if you are able to edit surveys if you go to "site administration" -> "Plugins" -> "Blocks" -> "Course Feedback". Once you have created a survey and set it active the normal links will be shown.

    Hi guys, have a fast question: Is there a function, where I can reset the results (for every course specifically)?

    Hi Christian, there is currently no function to reset answers for a specific course. You can copy the survey in the admin settings in order to reset it for ALL courses. If you have access to the database, you could also delete all entries connected to the course/survey in the block_coursefeedback_answers table.

    Thank you for answering my question. Its a really cool tool! Do you think of implementing such reset-features?

    I'm not sure if this feature would fit into the concept of the plugin. It is a feedback plugin to force course-wide feedbacks, which can't be omitted by teachers. Why should admins want to reset the results of a single course?

    Hi jan
    We have a problem with block course feedback.

    When exporting the data in * .csv only the 'odd' responses appear, the 'even' responses do not appear in the * .csv file
    It has a solution?

    An observation could change the scale 1-6; On a Likert scale of 1-5 or a Likert scale 1-7. They are the most used in ITC research.

    File *.csv
    Question Abstain 1 2 3 4 5 6

    Hi Jan,

    I agree on the observation if the previous post.
    We also prefer a Likert scale (1-5) above the six point scale.
    Or even better: a configurable scale.

    Is this in scope for a future release?

    Does this plugin work across the platform, to aggregate for all courses?

    Working with Moodle 3.6

    1.) When trying to use the setsticky-option, the response is "error while writig into data base". What went wrong? I am doing this as administrator
    2.) Can I somehow sho the stars in the course overview list which lists all courses?
