Pollit is a great way to find out in real time what's on your audience's mind. Here are a few ways Pollit can help you take the pulse of your people:
In a world as busy as ours, catching up to people for petition signatures can be tough. Make a time-consuming and frustrating task easy and quick with Pollit. Just gather a list of cell phone contact numbers, send your petition via text message, and collect signatures virtually. Pollit stores signatures in an online spreadsheet and handles all the other details, so you can carry on with changing the world.
Before allocating limited resources, it's important to understand the most pressing needs of your community. And no one knows those needs better than the people who make up that community. With Pollit, you can conduct a community poll with a minimum of time and other resources, assessing high-priority needs and interventions while identifying a critical mass of people willing to take action.
Oftentimes, the best way to know if you're making a difference is simply to ask. Ongoing evaluations can help you assess satisfaction, gather suggestions for continuous improvement, and measure program impact. With Pollit, you can collect monitoring and evaluation data at any time, in just a few easy steps, allowing you to frequently and cost-effectively evaluate -- and if needed, correct -- your current course.
Today's learning builds on yesterday's, and that's why it's so important to ensure that students are keeping up. Regular knowledge assessment gives confidence to learners on the right track and highlights students who need a little more guidance. Using Pollit, you can measure knowledge before and after your class, program, or intervention, without extending class time or otherwise inconveniencing students.
All you need to get started is a questionnaire and a list of mobile phone numbers. You can create questionnaires using numeric, short answer, and/or multiple-choice questions. Once your questionnaire is ready to go, Pollit sends a text message invitation to each number on your list. Pollit sends your first question, waiting for an answer before sending another. Answers are stored in a spreadsheet, where you can review them in real time and export them for analysis in other applications.Take a tour
