h1. I.1 Purpose of SurveyMonkey {anchor:purpose}

The purpose of SurveyMonkey is to allow anyone to create professional surveys easily and efficiently.  It allows both free and paying users to design custom surveys, collect and analyze responses of these surveys.  The results can be shared instantly with people the user chooses.

There is no end to the subject matter which these surveys can interpret.  SurveyMonkey offers over 15 question types including:
* Multiple Choice
* Matrix of Choices
* Rating Scale
* Text Boxes
* Demographics

SurveyMonkey also offers templates, or pre-made models of surveys.  These enable the user to create a survey quickly, thus allowing them faster access to the results. 

Users may also customize their surveys and view the changes in real time.  Some of the customization options include the following:
* Customize the color scheme to match your site.
* Include your company logo.
* Include your company name in the survey URL so respondents know it is an official questionnaire.
* Create the survey in the same language as your site.
* Serve up a custom thank you page once the survey is complete or redirect participants back to your site.

SurveyMonkey lets the user send out the survey on email lists or put a URL link on a web page to make it easy to get the desired audience for the survey.

The surveys that users can create on SurveyMonkey can be used by companies to measure customer satisfaction, poll visitors on a web site, or any number of things.  They can be used in education to involve parents, as classroom ice-breakers, or learning-style assessments.

h1. II How SurveyMonkey relates to other applications? {anchor:relate}

Like SurveyMonkey, other applications related to it make it faster and more efficient with 24 hour access. This chart compares the similarties and differences between Zoomerang, Survey Monkey, fluidSurveys, and MySurveyLab. It shows how they constucted a survey, how easy they were to use, and what features they offered.

| {color:#464648}{_}Starting plan (monthly)_{color} | $19 | currently free | $15 | {color:#808000}*$19.95{*}{color} |

"All of the applications are able to bring the convenience of the web to a survey; allowing customization, on the spot editing (unless you've emailed the survey, this is great for last minute corrections), and integration into websites. All allow users to craft several kinds of questions for their surveys, and Zoomerang and SurveyMonkey offer templates (surveys pre-formatted with questions) to save you time."

"The list of features was most impressive with SurveyMonkey, though the interface was easier to understand and use with the runner up in the feature category, Zoomerang. Custom themes, filtered responses, and the ability to share reports were some of what made SurveyMonkey feature-rich."

"In the end users are likely to feel that they get what they pay for; enterprise users will want the full range of features and will pay for SurveyMonkey, while budget users will use the free accounts of Zoomerang. Users wanting simplicity will see MySurveyLab and fluidSurveys easy ways to get basic functionality, with users wanting to email survey takers using MySurveyLab."

* According to [http://www.section508.gov] , being 508 Compliant means:
{quote}In 1998, Congress amended the Rehabilitation Act of 1973 (29 U.S.C. 794d) as amended by the Workforce Investment Act of 1998 (P.L. 105 - 220), August 7, 1998 to require Federal agencies to make their electronic and information technology (EIT) accessible to people with disabilities.

Specifically, Section 508 of that act requires that when Federal agencies develop, procure, maintain, or use EIT, Federal employees with disabilities have access to and use of information and data that is comparable to the access and use by Federal employees who are not individuals with disabilities, unless an undue burden would be imposed on the agency.{quote}
