This chapter describes various ways to use online surveys to enhance the learning experience of students. Not only are online polls conducted more efficiently than on paper, but in the process students develop critical thinking skills and gain a greater understanding of survey research as they write and revise survey items based on instructor and peer feedback. Online polls may also be helpful as ungraded pre-assessments of knowledge, as supplemental feedback to instructor evaluations, and as an online suggestion box to improve instruction. In a relatively short amount of time, students can use surveys to collect a large amount of data for a collaborative class project. The chapter concludes by discussing guidelines, limitations, and considerations for implementing online surveys.
