Participation% total for course
Please add a running total for all polls used in the course, students want to know what proportions of polls they have answered so they know how they are doing. Professors are using Polleverywhere for participation. This total participation % should be easy to sync with LMS with a click or on a daily/weekly automated schedule.
Thanks for your suggestion! While we don’t have a running total currently, you can get participation % by:
1. Importing your course roster from your LMS to Poll Everywhere
2. Creating a Gradebook report for each activity you used in class on a regular basis (like daily or weekly)
3. Filtering that Gradebook report by the Participant Group
4. Exporting the Gradebook report to the LMS and selecting to send Participation rather than Correctness.
Let me know if that helps. We appreciate your feedback!

I will probably not use Poll Everywhere next semester unless this issue is addressed.
Yes, Poll EveryWhere works well for many tasks in the class I'm teaching this semester, but this one would be of great utility. I currently manually count the fraction of polls taken for the students participation grade, which is not ideal.
