Online polls can be used to create surveys and formative assessments. Online polls allow teachers and students to collect information easily through a web-based interface. 

Pollcode is a simple survey tool for creating multiple choice style polls. Pollcode surveys can be created as fast as it takes a user to type the questions and answers. Pollcode surveys can be embedded into existing web pages or blogs. 


Google Forms is a feature in Google Docs to create an online form to collect information. Google Forms allow for multiple question/answer formats including short typed answers, paragraph typed answers, multiple choice, check-lists, rating scales, and selections grids. Information collected through Google Forms is stored in a Google Docs spreadsheet and is automatically converted into summary charts and statistics. Google Forms can be used by teachers to create online quizzes and assignments in addition to simple surveys.
