Exploring SurveyGizmo

SurveyGizmo is another comprehensive package with a cool looking interface for creating online Surveys, Quizzes, Forms, and even Polls. Now all the attracted design draws you in, it more than delivers on functionality. Like the other survey tools we're exploring in this chapter, SurveyGizmo has its pros and its cons as well, specifically when discussing the free version. So let's start with the pros. One, it really is comprehensive in that you can create more than just online surveys.

You also get tools for creating online quizzes, forms, and quick polls. I really like the look and feel of this one, particularly the Dashboard effect you see once you get logged in. SurveyGizmo offers a large number of different question types you can use in your surveys. It really is fairly extensive, and with the free account you do get to create an unlimited number of surveys, quizzes, forms, and polls. But of course, there are some cons. For one, when you go to their site to sign up, it looks like your only option is to sign up for a 14-day free trial, and then after that you'll need to pay $50 a month to continue, adding an extra 20 a month if you have additional users who will need to access it.

This is not really the case. There is a free account option hidden in the fine print and another option if you do sign up for the 14- day trial is to downgrade to the free account, and that will keep it free. During the free trial if you sign up, there is a limit to 25 responses, but if you sign up for their free account right off the bat or if you downgrade to the free option, the limit is 250 responses per month, and it will stay that way. Now the upgrade cost of $50 a month plus 20 per month for additional user gets you additional functionality like unlimited responses per month, you get advanced logic and custom scripting, phone support, and the ability to create what we call Tally and Pass/Fail type quizzes.
