Vizzual Forms provides an easy to use tool for creating online forms. The forms can have multiple choice, open ended responses, or a combination of both. The free version of Vizzual Forms only allows ten response fields, but I’ve found that ten responses is generally as many as I ever need.
Applications for Education
I use online surveys to get a general sense of what my students have learned and the skills or knowledge that they still need to develop. I find that having my students take a brief, anonymous online survey can be useful as a prior knowledge assessment before starting a unit of study. I’ve also used the same type of survey to determine what content I need to review with or reteach to my students.
