Give access only to the attending students.
It would be great if only the attending students can response to the active survey or quiz. If a student is registered in the class, he still can take the survey even though he is not attending the class. This feature will be very helpful in taking the class attendance. I would recommend having an access code for each survey displayed on the board. Attending students only can see it and type it in to access the survey. This feature can be added to the survey setting, such as Restrict to participants with access code only.
We’ve discussed a few different ways we might do this. I’d like to ask if this would work for you:
If the title of the question is not displayed on the mobile device, so the only was a student could know what you are asking is if they can see the chart, would that be sufficient for you?
It isn’t fool proof, but we’re a little hesitant to add in the complexity to reply that it takes to enter a long, rotating code. There’s just a balance we’re trying to strike between ease of replying and preventing any cheating.

I agree with Tawfik. I'm a professor, and I use Poll Everywhere to take attendance in my classes. I've noticed lately that some people are gaming the system by logging in and completing the surveys, even if they are not present. An access code that I could display in the classroom would solve this problem handily.
Thanks for considering this.
I would prefer to keep the title of the question displayed on the mobile device.I believe if the title is not displayed, this will not prevent students outside the class to see and attempt the survey anyways.
If you can have a simple access code displayed on the instructor screen, this would be ideal. This access code can be optional and activated only if attendance is required.
