Using Quiz & Polling Tools

in the School Library Media Center

Poll and Match

Have you ever had to assign students to classes based on their preferences? We have elective classes and we let the students submit their ranked choices for them.

Other Tools

At our middle school in Bethany, CT, we have been using Survey Monkey. It is quite intuitive and easy to use and a great way to collect feedback.
