Editing participant poll answers as a presenter.
Possible way for presenters to edit participant's poll answers? Often times, participants request a change of Poll answers simply because they selected the incorrect answer for a graded poll or they had technical difficulties trying to access the Poll. I was just wondering if there's already a feature implemented where the presenter can go in and change the participant's answer or even manually enter in a participant's answer.
We do not have a way to do this right now. I definitely understand the situation when a participant has legitimate issues and should get a correct score.
Longer term, I expect that we will create something like this. However, there are some implications around potential cheating and data ownership that just makes it trickier to implement. Mostly this is around editing open ended responses where a bad actor could abuse Poll Everywhere to get a participant in trouble by editing their responses.
We might be able to do something to edit points/correctness from our reports. Otherwise, for now, I recommend making any necessary edits from wherever you are storing the grades long term.
Thanks for the idea!

Every class I use PollEverywhere, someone is unable to log in, or has some other technical trouble. They then submit their answers on paper. It'd be incredibly helpful if I could then on the back end add their response manually into PollEverywhere. At the moment I can only do this after downloading the report, but it'd be much easier to do it in PollEverywhere directly. (As then the grade can be also sent to Moodle directly ... atm there is no way to modify it.)
