As with most word clouds, words that appear the most are larger while words that appear less often appear smaller. This resource allows teachers to quickly see what the most common answers to a question are.

What do Teachers Think of Answer Garden?
Answer Garden is a tech tool that you can learn and implement in less than 10 minutes. Teachers simply create a question and share their link with students. Once students respond, you'll be able to watch your word cloud develop. This tool is great to use if you're sharing the data with students because they can easily read and understand the image provided by Answer Garden. - ChrisTuckerEdu.
"I think this can be a great teaching tool. The site is fairly easily to use. You can create an account to go back and edit your links. If you do not create an account and you lose your link you will not be able to get it back. I really like this website as a quick tool to have instant feedback or brainstorming type responses. I recommend using this if you need a quick response out of students or a quick talking point with students comments." - Graphite review from Melissa Z.
