"How do I distribute survey accounts to participants in Snapshot 1 (Terms 1 and 2)?"
For Snapshot 1 (Terms 1 and 2), usernames and passwords must be given to the correlating student.
You will need to download the list of email addresses, usernames, and passwords to distribute to the students through the Survey taker list and passwords option under the My Surveys menu. The list will include the student's email address, a unique username, and a password for each individual student.
"How do I distribute survey accounts to participants in Snapshot 2 (Terms 3 and 4)?"
In Snapshot 2 (Terms 3 and 4) usernames and passwords can be distributed randomly. Once your survey is set up and activated, you must download a list of accounts to distribute to participants through the Survey taker list and passwords option under the My Surveys menu. The list will include a unique username and password for each participant. You can randomly distribute one account to each student who is taking the survey.
Most schools cut these usernames and passwords into individual slips of paper and allow students to draw them from a container before taking the survey. This increases students’ confidence that the survey is truly confidential.
For your convenience, we offer the option to download the list in Excel (.xls) format.
If your School is doing both the Secondary survey and the Primary survey we also recommend printing the two lists of usernames and passwords on different colour sheets. This helps with ensuring you are distributing the correct survey accounts to the correct grades.
"I have set up a survey. Can you send me my student account login information?"
You can retrieve the list of usernames and passwords by selecting the Survey Taker List and Passwords option under the My Surveys menu. From there, you can choose to download the list in Excel.
If you need additional survey participant accounts, please contact the Helpdesk to request them. If your school has more than one active survey, be sure to mention which one you need the accounts created for. Ordinarily, we are able to create these new accounts the same day requested."When setting up the survey, we estimated too few participants. Can you add some extra accounts and send them to me?"
Once the extra accounts are created, you will receive an email from firstname.lastname@example.org. From there, you can download the list of new accounts through the Survey Taker List and Passwords option under the My Surveys menu. The newest accounts will be the ones at the bottom of the list.
