Class Survey

There is a Class Survey available in D2L (see "Who are we? Class Survey" in the Discussion area). This survey is anonymous. The survey has eight questions; please make sure you answer all eight. In addition, if you want you can also click "Add Reply" if you want to supply additional information about yourself to share with the rest of the class.

Please take the Survey and when you are finished, declare your work in the Desire2Learn gradebook. You will find the Gradebook Declaration for the Survey in the Quizzes and Declaration area in Desire2Learn. This Desire2Learn gradebook declaration is governed by the Honor Code.
