ProProfs - Polls, Quizzes, and Flashcards

ProProfs offers users a free service for creating polls, quizzes, and flashcards. Any poll, quiz, or flashcard set that you create can be embedded into your blog or website.

In the quiz section of ProProfs you can create a "scored quiz" or a "personality quiz." Scored quizzes are designed for asking questions that have a clear right or wrong answer. Scored quizzes can have up to five answer choices. You can include an answer explanation to be displayed after the question has been answered. All quizzes can have images and videos included in the questions.

Applications for Education
Teachers could use ProProfs to create a quiz to display on their course's blog or website. The quiz could be used by students for self-assessment prior to a quiz or test. A ProProfs poll could be used to take an informal, anonymous survey of your students' understanding of a topic.
