Please Note: Surveys are anonymous in Blackboard and do not record points. Instructors can't see individual student answers, only the overall student responses for each question in Attempt Statistics.

If you want to have each answer "graded" to yield more statistical data, the Test tool would be more appropriate to use for this activity.
