Copy a Survey within a Single Course

[Printer Icon] Print this article

Sometimes an instructor wants to make a duplicate copy of a survey within the same course and then make changes so they do not have to recreate the entire survey again.

To copy a survey within the same course:

1. Go to the Control Panel >> Course Tools >> Tests, Surveys, and Pools >> Surveys.

2. Click the chevron beside the survey; select Copy.

3. Under the survey you copied you will then see a duplicate of that survey with the same name but with a (1) beside the title.

Note: It is recommended that you change the title of the survey to avoid any confusion by clicking on the chevron beside the survey and select Edit. Then beside Survey Canvas: Create a Survey (1) click the chevron and select Edit again. You can also take the opportunity to edit the description and instructions as well, if needed.
