Polls where a student can 'retract' their answer. A useful idea for us is a ' I'm confused' meter during a complex class. Students click to indicate their confusion and a screen pops up on the presenter PC/account. When the student is satisfied/no longer confused they can click it 'off' and the presenter PC/screen is updated to reflect this.5 votes
Cool idea! I might recommend hacking our multiple choice polls for this in the short run. Here’s something you could try
- add a “I’m confused” answer choice for a multiple choice poll
- all of our multiple choice polls have a Change Answer feature enabled by default
- students who are confused can initially post that response and the change their answer once they understand
- you’ll be able to see the “I’m confused” on the regular bar chart
I wish that it could be shared with Google Classroom, now that it works with Google Slides. Then, I could post a Poll Everywhere assignment that my students could answer in the evenings or on weekends.14 votes
We are working on a big expansion to our Survey View feature which will allow for asynchronous polling/surveys that might work for you. Basically you could post a link to a survey quiz for the students to take as homework. We’ll have a big release for it when it’s available and hopefully this will work for you.
sidebar that groups separate polls so that it is more clear what will happen (what questions will be asked) when the poll is started8 votes
For polling slides (below the question), directions are provided to learners on how to respond via web browser at PollEV.com and also for texting to 22333; however, most of our learners use the Poll EV app on their smart phone or tablets to respond. It would be nice if short directions were provided to use the Poll EV app as a means to respond.10 votes
I think this is a really good idea, but it’ll be a little tough for us. There is a very limited amount of screen available on our poll chart and we don’t want to overwhelm it too much.
We’ll definitely have our design team see if they can come up with a good way to fit all of our different response instructions on the page.
Have more options for graphic choices including 3D graphs3 votes
This may soon be possible for us. We are beginning to work on updating our charts to a new technology base which will add a lot more flexibility and animations for us.
Are you thinking of something like Microsoft Excel’s 3D graphs or something a bit different?
Integrate with Blackboard6 votes
I’m sorry you had trouble finding our contact info! We certainly don’t mean to hide it. I usually recommend folks click on the grey ? on the bottom right of every page. That will send an email straight to our support team and we’re happy to help
Blogging capabilities? Maybe a section where students could create and host their own polls.11 votes
Add edit feature to polls on mobile devices (android)10 votes
Sure, what sort of features or things would you like to edit from our mobile app?
For example, are you just interested in editing the poll title and answer choices OR do you want control for other features such as maximum number of allowed responses per participant, anonymity, ways to respond (Web, SMS, Twitter), or any visual settings (colors, font size, etc…) on the chart?
There are a low of options, so it would be great to know which are the most important for you. Thanks for the feedback!
Some poll questions may have a longer stem than 250 characters; can you create a new template that allows for longer questions? thanks17 votes
See if you can design a platform like Class Flow which combines slide sharing with polls. Also, you can start getting teacher input on questions to post per grade and subject content area to increase your database of questions.7 votes
Create a way for students to update graphic organizers, like a venn diagram and have it able to show live on the website.11 votes
FOr open ended responses, it would be cool to be able to move Cluster answers around to manually group similar responses. This can help facilitate a puzzle piece type exercise7 votes
For Gradebook, let answering one poll/day (or one in a select group of polls) to give full participation7 votes
Build a Wordpress plugin as well as a Woocommerce plugin4 votes
I would like to see a feature on PollEverywhere that allows a progressive poll throughout a class period, which shows up as a line graph.
For instance, I may ask a question at the beginning of the class, and students answer. Some may change their minds as the lesson progresses and we read more of our book, so I could take another poll with the same question. Then again at the end of class. We could discuss how opinions change based on perspective.17 votes
Interesting idea! Instead of a Line Graph – do you think it would work for you if we instead have Grouped Bar Charts, so you can compare before/after?
This was you would have two bars of different colors to compare the before/after responses for each of the answer choices to a multiple choice poll. It would not let you pinpoint the exact time the students changed their minds > but it does give you a very easy/quick way to compare how their choices changed from the beginning vs end of a lesson. It would look something like this: https://goo.gl/Bgf9oW
What do you think?
An indicator when over 95% of participants have polled in (allowing an initial poll to set baseline for session).19 votes
We do have a setting to “Show total results” which will show the total number of responses you have received for an individual poll question. It will be displayed on the bottom right of the chart. You can use this to get a count of responses and then chose to move on when it hits an amount. To show the total results on the chart:
Click the Paintbrush icon to open visual settings menu > select Show total results at the bottom of that menu.
Would it be enough for us to allow you to preset an amount and when the “Total Results” nears or hits this number we provide some alert on the chart to notify the presenter?
I’m hesitant to have us try and guess when a poll question has received all of the responses that it will receive. We do not want to try and control the…
seems an absurd limit. really a problem for my classroom usage. I'd maybe try to use powerpoint, but that facility is buggy, you can never tell how big the slides will turnout on presentation I saw in my testing.11 votes
Thanks for the feedback! The character limit is due mostly to a lack of screen real estate on the chart view. We limit the number of characters to preserve legibility.
PowerPoint is a good alternative. If you’re experiencing a bug, please email us at firstname.lastname@example.org so we can get it sorted out.
