Polls and surveys for research
It is always a good idea to make data driven decisions, relying your arrangements on solid information. From new school acquisitions to new courses or activities, it is better to have some data about students’ desire or parents’ opinion first. It’s simple to create an online poll and add it to your main communication channel, which could be a website, a social media group or email. And if you need more details and a better insight you can conduct complex surveys to research a certain subject. You will have reports to backup your decision, showing the general opinion regarding a specific matter.
