How to Create an Anonymous Survey

In order to get a truly anonymous response, we recommend Microsoft Forms with the below settings selected since Quercus surveys can be de-anonymized by members of the teaching team.

Login to your O365 account and go to Microsoft Forms. #

Go to to login (or use your waffle menu to view your apps).

  1. Select on Forms.
  2. If you don’t see Forms, you might have to visit “All Apps” to search for it.

Alternate Method of Accessing Forms via O365 Waffle Menu #

Set your form to collect anonymous responses. #

  1. Go to the “More Options” menu.
  2. Go to Settings.
  3. Select the “Only people in my organization can respond” radio button. De-select “record name” and select “one response per person.”

Share your form to your Quercus course (or otherwise). #

After building out the elements of your form, you can share it to those who will be filling it out.

  1. Navigate to “Share” options.
  2. Ensure that “Only people in my organization can respond” is selected.
  3. Copy the URL for pasting into your communication.
