Multiple Correct Answers in a Poll (Only allow 1 response per poll choice)
Allow multiple correct answers in a poll, without allowing multiple votes for the same answer.
We’ve disabled duplicate responses on Multiple choice activities by default. Thanks for your feedback!

There should be an easy way for students to enter in multiple choice answers. While sending two answers via cell phone via separate texts may be hard to sort out in terms of billing plans, that problem would be averted if a student just sent both answers in a single text. (That currently triggers an error message.)
For example, if the correct answers were A and C, then the text would be "AC" or "CA". The software from poll everywhere should be able to sort that out. And it seems pretty easy for a software program to distinguish the number of users versus the number of answers submitted
As others have said, "Select All" questions are a fundamental way to assess students.

Still beta in 2019? AND only works with web version, not app. This is really making me re-think my plans to use Poll Everywhere in my classes - 'select all that apply' is a pretty basic question type, seems just silly that it's not included here.
By default all "multiple choice" questions are truely spoken single choice questions. It would be easier to add another type of questions for real multiple choice questions, where you may opt for multiple answers (e.g. like Pingo does it). Currently you have to set the number how often may a participant vote to the number of answers and then the number of how often for each answer to 1.
Wow, I'm shocked this is not an option. Too bad I just paid for a subscription under the assumption this was possible!
That beta feature does nothing at all to address the core issue! The problem isn't students mis-clicking and selecting the right answer more than once, the problem is that PollEv treats choosing more than one option like it's more than one response in the first place. This is very frustrating, since I also purchased a plan which allows enough responses for the number of students in my class, but not enough for all of them to "respond" three times.

I would like to be able to have points allocated between two correct answers. For example, if you say Which two answers are true:
A (true) - 1 point
B (true) - 1 point
C (false) - 0 points
D (false) - 0 points
If I allow 2 responses, currently the student only can receive 1 point - I am not sure how it is calculated (maybe if one of the two responses is correct).
I would like them to be able to get 0 (answered c, d) , 1 (answered with one correct option), or two points (answered a,b).

I am using this feature and it is great. However, one extra tweak is needed. For example, I have a poll where the question is “Which of these scenarios is likely?” The options are Scenario A, Scenario B and Scenario C. The audience can select one or more of these – e.g. A alone or A and B or A and B and C, etc. There is also an option D which is “None of the above”. If I set up the poll to give people the options to respond three times, then they can choose A, B, C, etc, but I don’t want them to be able to choose A, B and D for example. If they select D then they should not be able to choose any of A, B, C.
It’s important to understand that common core assessments ask students to check more than one answer on some questions (choose all of the correct/incorrect responses). The multiple choice question is evolving, PollEv should too.
I need you to allow students to check "all that apply" in a single response. Telling us to tell students to "respond as many times as they would like" is not a solution because I have 35 kids in each class and you only allow up to 40 responses on a paid account. Your "solution" only allows a couple students to respond more than once!

Just multiple checkbox.
edit>max answer per participant.
and it opens door to that type of question. e.g. Select two brands you like?
can't wait to see that coming!
I am going to tag along with Adriana and Matt on this one. We should implement a feature that allows presenters to limit participants to choosing only one of each response option for a multiple choice poll.
Matt Griffin commented
For polls where you want the respondent to "select all that apply", only allow them to select each option once. Example, if the choices are A, B, C, and D, only allow one selection max for each.

Never mind! I now see that is possible by adjusting the # of responses each person is allowed.

How about a "select all that apply" poll. For example, which of the following 5 books have you read? Then the students select as many of the books as they have read.
