SurveyMonkey is an online survey builder, mostly helpful for analysing the results through various graphs. One can use this tool for free, however, there are different paid plans for extra features. The free version of SurveyMonkey offers unlimited number of surveys, yet there is the restriction of having just 10 questions and 100 responses per survey.
One can start creating a survey by signing up through the SurveyMonkey site, or through a Google and Facebook account. In a survey, one may include different types of questions and SurveyMonkey gives us the range of 15 types of questions. One great feature that SurveyMonkey offers is the question bank of certified questions written by professional methodologists. This could be done by writing the keywords in the question field and the related questions will be displayed on screen. Another thing which I like is that users can preview the survey at any time, throughout its creation. Moreover, the results of the survey are well organized and can be downloaded in different formats such as presentation and pdf.
SurveyMonkey is a practical tool to use in classroom, not just to engage students in learning but also to assess students on previous knowledge. The teacher can also use it to generate classroom discussions or to check the students’ difficulties after the lesson.
