Take a look at QuizSnack and see what you think. Posting a simple poll or survey on your course website can be a good way to get some quick, informal feedback from your students to pre-assess what they know about your course's content.
QuizSnack is a free tool for creating online polls, surveys, and personality quizzes to post on your blog or website. Select one of three poll/quiz formats, type your question(s) and answer choices, and select a template. Then copy the embed code provided by Quiz Snack.
Have you found some online sites you like for creating surveys, polls, and/or personality quizzes?
Quiz Snack looks good! Thanks for sharing. I have taken a survey on SurveyMonkey for ProLiteracy. It is a free powerful tool for creating web surveys. It also offers online software made easy. The SurveyMonkey's website is <www.surveymonkey.com>.
Personally, I try to select tools that are built with educators in mind, especially when collecting information from students. Right now, I am using Socrative in order to collect responses. It is more like a student response system for immediate feedback, not necessarily for creating web surveys. Students can answer with either a computer or their smartphone. It is very simple.
For creating web surveys, I think Google Forms works well and offers lots of different question options. Once you create a quiz, you can use a simple script to grade the answers from students. This saves tons of time. Read more about Flubaroo grading script on the Do You Google group blog.
Has anyone used any of these web sites to create polls or surveys? The list appears on the web site Technology Tidbits: Thoughts of a Cyber Hero.
Do you think any of these sites offer polls or surveys suitable for educational purposes?
I also recently found a very easy, simple poll tool that does not require registration or a membership fee. If you want a quick response to a question, try Kwiqpoll - Simple Web Polls.
Would this poll be useful as a bell ringer or other classroom aid?
I was actually going to post a question here about using polls/surveys that could be embedded into a blog or discussion board for one of my class projects. Are there any other polls that people have found that allow students to submit typed, written responses that are sent to the teacher and you don't have to register for them?
http://pollcode.com/ also is easy to use, and easy to embed!!
These polls can be embedded into a blog or discussion board. Perhaps one of these will be useful for your class projects.
Let us know if you like one of these poll resouces as well as Pollcode.com. Thanks for sharing Pollcode in your post.
I LOVE http://www.polleverywhere.com/ = Poll Everywhere. It is FREE and students can use a computer or cell phone to text the correct response. It shows visually in a bar graph how people are voting in real time.
Free Technology for Teachers recently featured a post about creating and delivering quizzes online. Check out Seven Tools for Building and Sharing Online Quizzes.
If you have used any of these online tools, please share your experiences with us. Which online quiz site might be useful in your teaching?
When asking for personality quizzes, I am assuming you are wishing to find out how individual students learn so that you may differentiate. So, I wanted to share a new version of the VARK Learning Styles online tool for younger students. http://www.vark-learn.com/english/page.asp?p=younger
I hope you find it useful.
