Surveys are not required in a course. They are beneficial for tracking learner feedback on modules.
A Survey is not the same thing as an Assessment. A Survey provides learner feedback on the modules -- quality of the content and ease of use. A Survey doesn't have right/wrong answers. An Assessment/Quiz helps reinforce knowledge and test the learner's comprehension of course content and has right/wrong answers.
