Why create polls?
Online polling tools allow users to construct a variety of types of survey instruments, generating instant results and charts. They can be used live or can be embedded on blogs, wikis and other sites. Students and teachers can respond to polls on the web or on cell phones. Students learn how to conduct original research when they develop survey instruments and items.
Teachers and librarians can use polls and surveys:
- To check for basic understanding prior to or after instruction
- To assess opinions
- To assess reading tastes
- To develop agenda for meetings
- To decide on dates for events and meetings
- To get feedback relating to reading interests or collection needs
