You can create a survey using the same process you would to create an assessment, since the "Survey" question type allows you to choose from a predefined set of scales commonly used for survey reporting. Those scales are the following:
Disagree, Undecided, Agree
Below Average -> Above Average
Strongly Disagree -> Strongly Agree
Unacceptable -> Excellent
1 -> 5
1 -> 10
Hence, to create a survey, simply create an assessment that consists of "Survey" questions. For more information, see Creating questions for an assessment.
