AEFIS - Best Practices for Survey Template Titles (UW-Madison)
This document describes best practices for titling AEFIS survey templates. You must be an AEFIS administrator to create or edit AEFIS survey templates.
You will likely use the same survey template across multiple courses and semesters. Consider the following best practices when creating a title for your survey template:
- Include your department's name or a standard abbreviation in the survey template title (e.g "English" or "ENG). Remember, students will see your survey name and should be able to quickly identify your department.
- Do not include a specific instructor's name in the survey template title. Instructors will be identified elsewhere in the survey.
- Do not include specific dates or semester information in the survey template title. Using the same survey template across multiple semesters will not only save you work, it will make it easier compare and analyze survey results.
You will not be able to rename your survey after it has been published, so make sure your title is easy to understand and generic enough to apply to multiple courses in your department!
