## your q/s our a/s: when to use D2L self-assessment and when D2L survey

Posted by Plamen Miltenoff on 28th August 2013

Q: The students had to write 3 learning goals in D2L self-assessment that they had for the semester, so they typed those in, and then clicked “send” or “complete” or whatever, and their response just went into the ether? There has to be a way to retrieve the information. Any ideas?

A:
The info is gone.  It doesn’t get collected anywhere, that’s not the nature of the tool.  You wanted a survey.
Self-Assessment is used rather to temporarily collect information for the student her/him-self and review; if the instructor needs to get hold of that info, the instructor must consider survey

Example for a good use of self-assessment:

# Self Assessment

## Question 1

After you set up the following equation so that it could be solved by using the Quadratic Formula, in this case with polynomial terms on the left-hand side, what are the values of a, b, and c?

5x – 3x2 = 7

Question 1 options:
 a = 5, b = -3, c = 7 a = -3, b = 5, c = 7 a = -3, b = 5, c = -7

## Question 2

After you set up the following equation so that it could be solved by using the Quadratic Formula, in this case with polynomial terms on the left-hand side, what are the values of a, b, and c?

-4x + 2x2 + 11 = -5

Question 2 options:
 a = -4, b = 2, c = 11 a = 2, b = -4, c = 11 a = 2, b = -4, c = 16 a = -4, b = 2, c = 16
