Service notice: All Catalyst Web Tools–except WebQ Survey and GradeBook–will be retired. View timeline and details.

With QuickPoll, you can quickly create anonymous, one-question polls that display results in a pie chart or bar graph to participants after they have taken the poll.

After you have created a poll, you can distribute it to participants in a variety of ways:

  • Send a link to participants in an email message
  • Create a link on a Web page
  • Embed the poll directly in a Web page

After participants have taken your poll, you can return to QuickPoll to view the results. You can see the data displayed in a table, or view a pie chart or bar graph.
