Information for Students about Flash Survey

Q. Do I have to complete my Flash Survey all at once or can I complete it at a later date?

A. Flash Survey stores your responses as you go along and you can come back and complete the survey at a later date, as long as the survey completion window is still open.


Q. I missed the window of opportunity to complete the Flash Survey. Can I get the survey opened back up so that I can complete it?

A. No, the survey window can only be changed by request of the instructor.


Q. Are my survey responses anonymous? Will my instructor know what I said about them?

A. Survey responses are anonymous. While the Flash Survey system does allow you to start a survey and complete it at a later time, once you have submitted the survey, no one is able to determine what your responses were. The only exception is if you are the only student enrolled in the course.


Q. I lost the email with the link to my survey. What can I do?

A. Visit the Flash Survey website and login with your Flashline username and password to view your list of surveys.
