Google Forms

Google Forms is well suited for data collection between clients and internal cross-department teams. This can be branded for your company and used to view and analyze data collected for subsequent action. It is well-suited for not only small populations but larger groups and will support the compilation of medium - complexity data sets

Poll Everywhere

The reasons to use Poll Everywhere:1. Get rid of those clickers! They eat batteries, need constant maintenance, and ofter walk off at a monetary loss. 2. The pricing model is really easy to manage, the campus/company license will pay for itself even if you only have 5-10 active users.3. Stop fighting mobile devices in your classroom and start leveraging them. Students can't mess around on social media, texting etc if they are in the PE app.Then situations where Poll Everywhere wouldn't work as well:1. Not great for multiple part, asynchronous polling, or data collection2. Areas where there is a limited or absent internet connection.3. Situations where an audience would lack basic technology such as a cell phone or laptop.

Pros

Google Forms

  • Simple & Easy to create. You need little to no knowledge on the working of Google forms, the process is intuitive and quick.
  • Data collection is a breeze. The data gathered from google forms is precisely presented to you without modification. Integration with Google Sheets, provides us with more flexibility to filter and sort complex data fields.
  • Personalization - Google forms allows us to brand the surveys/questionnaires that we send out. They feel a little more personalized and worked up that just generic forms that our competitors send out.

Poll Everywhere

  • It's deceptively simple to use. Showing how to use the features, create & modify questions, and viewing polling data, is much easier than it first seems.
  • There are a surprising amount of alternate ways to poll users and present questions in more ways than just "Question and 2-4 possible answers." It's pretty easy to customize.
  • It's very, very, very easy to use as an attendee. There's not anything complex or invasive in order to sign in and vote in polls.

Cons

Google Forms

  • My number one issue is that in quizzes, the Multiple Choice Grid format (essentially, a matching section, which is the ideal format for some information) will not allow an answer key to be programmed. This means manual grading of an item of this type.
  • Some features are not very intuitive, such as adding an answer key. It's rather buried. The Help option will provide guidance, but I feel that as a relatively tech-savvy person, I should be able to find and use all commonly used features without having to go to the Help section.
  • Forms do not automatically include email notifications to the creator when participants finish the quiz, and this setting has to be turned on manually for each form you create. It would be handy if there were an across-the-board option to indicate that you do or don't want email notifications for responses to all your Forms.

Poll Everywhere

  • SSO integration could be a little smoother
  • LMS grade integration requires many steps, sometimes frustrates faculty
  • New quiz/gaming feature is still not as good as Kahoot - some technical issues in presentations

I love google forms, it is simple enough to get all the voting and attendance done that we need. I rate it this high because I have recommended it to a lot of my friends at school who run clubs. It is very user friendly and I had almost no problems with it what so ever

I like the support and the support team is very helpful. I do wish that there was an online chat instead of email, I don't know if this has changed because I haven't needed help in a while but that is the only thing that I wish google forms would include

Alternatives Considered

Google Forms

Survey Monkey can be a tad more clunky in the building- there is something that is so seamless when using Google products. Google Forms we use when we don't want something too complicated- and most people are very familiar with the Google Forms process, so I trust the backend the entire time. In more recent years, we find ourselves turning to Google Forms more- I am a more tech savvy member of the team, but what I like about using Google Forms is that I can pass it on to my other team member, who feels less confident in this area. With SurveyMonkey, I'm typically the main staff member who feels like they can work it out adeptly. Plus, as I've mentioned, the price is absolutely impossible to beat for the quality

Poll Everywhere

Other than Google Forms (which I utilize heavily, but for different reasons and during different areas) I find Poll Everywhere to be the best at what it offers and does. Options to lock questions, hide or show responses, varying questions/response types, and the ability to let users respond via text message on their phone or through the website/app increase the functionality of the program. The is also the ability to be creative and change poll/question backgrounds, colors and layouts as well as attach/embed images.

Return on Investment

  • We've been able to gather feedback quickly and efficiently without spending any of the organizational budget.
  • We've been able to address concerns or issues due to the feedback, therefore improving our programming.
  • We continue to get great suggestions and feedback from learners regarding what they want to learn or see on our site.

Poll Everywhere

  • So far, the ROI is high because we utilize it frequently as an innovative way to engage students.
