D2L - Survey Branching (UW-Madison)


UW-Madison is adopting Canvas as the single, centrally supported learning management system, and discontinuing support for Desire2Learn (D2L) and Moodle. Access to D2L and Moodle will permanently end June 1, 2018. For information about retaining materials from D2L or Moodle, please refer to this document.

If you have Multiple Choice or True/False questions in your survey it is possible to add branching. Branching is an optional feature that allows you to direct the order of the questions depending on the respondent's answers.

1. Once a survey is created (see D2L - Creating Surveys (UW-Madison) for assistance with this), click the Layout/Questions tab.

2. Click the BranchingWizard.PNG button on the bottom right side after creating your questions. The wizard displays a list of the questions in your survey and their corresponding types. If you get a Confirmation box, click Yes.


3. Next to the corresponding answers, you can create a branch from them by filling in the number of the question you would like to have that answer lead to. You also have the option of terminating the survey after certain answers are chosen.


4. Click Picture3.gif.

*Note* When branching is used, survey questions are presented one at a time, each on a separate page (i.e. page breaks are inserted between every question).
