Quizzes & Polls
Online quizzes and polls allow students to interact with Web-based material. Polls can be used to obtain feedback while quizzes can measure progress. Students can voice their opinions, react to class material, and discover new information.
What can I do with it?
- Create polls and embed them into D2L to obtain student opinions and encourage online interaction.
- Design a multiple-choice quiz that students can use to assess their understanding of class material.
- Implement interactive quizzes into the course that can be used to study content.
- Require that students create their own quizzes and share them with the entire class.
With registration and no cost, Polldaddy allows a user to create polls and surveys in a simplistic manner. A customized layout makes the creation of a poll as easy as entering a poll question, a list of possible answers, and selecting a style. The creation of a survey is just as simple but requires a few more steps including entering a survey name and title, creating a start and finish message, selecting a style, and building the body of the survey. To build a survey, the user simply drags the building blocks of the survey (question types, page headers, etc) into an allotted work space.

Users can create customized jeopardy games or select from pre-designed templates. Jeopardy games ask questions about certain topics for set amounts of points. Students can compete with one another while learning educational material. PowerPoint is not needed to create these quizzes. If users want to add video or images to their jeopardy games, they will need to know how to implement HTML code.
