Educators' Ideas

  1. Easy assignment of segregation and marking options.

    Easier ways to apply things like segregation of enabling grading to slide results (clicking checkboxes and applying it to al selections, etc.)

  2. Integrate with Checkpoint Learning for participant imports and credit exports

    Checkpoint Learning is a popular LMS in the accounting industry. Because our regulatory standards require that we ask polling questions throughout a training for anyone who does not attend a live session, we use a lot of polling. It would be helpful to be able to import all our participants from Checkpoint Learning to Poll Everywhere and export credit back to them in Checkpoint Learning if they answer the polling questions.

  4. Add graphic organizers

  5. You should be able to incorporate video or audio clips from file or YouTube

    show/play video or audio example and then ask students to pick answers based on what they are seeing/hearing on the clip. This would be great for assessment training. For example play an audio clip of lung sounds. Students then need to choose if they are hearing wheezes, crackles, stridor, or clear lung sounds.

  6. Allow the creator of the poll to edit the results to manually enter results.

    I have a few students without cell phones or another technology device in my classroom. I go around and ask these students what they think the answer it. I would then like to add their responses to the result totals.

  7. Have a sound play whenever there's a response.

    I've made a live "I don't understand poll" for students who don't understand what I just said in lecture. If I see responses I would back-up and repeat or expand on the lecture point. Sometimes I don't know if there are responses without looking at it, so it would be nice if it could play a specific sound to let me know.

    Hi,

    Thanks for your feedback and interest in Poll Everywhere!

    That’s an interesting idea! We’ll put it under review and talk about it. We’ll also let other users vote on your idea.

  8. increase the character limit for questions

    Some poll questions may have a longer stem than 250 characters; can you create a new template that allows for longer questions? thanks

  9. Make it compatible with active inspire and the promethean software

    I am a math teacher and love using your program. 2 things that can make it better. 1. include some sort of equation editor so equations can easily be inserted. 2. make it compatible with the active inspire (promethean planet) software.

    Hi Paul,

    Thanks for reaching out!

    Have you tried using LaTeX in the option fields? It should work if you begin with “latex:”

    Regarding Promethean Planet, I’ll keep my eyes open! I haven’t heard of a request for it so far, though.

  10. Countrywide Popular polls

    Add polls based on popularity of the country, that way, the polls can not only cover local-level reviews of decisions or opinions from a single group, but you can also have country-wide reports of opinions on their land's most talked-about subjects and get opinions.

    Thanks for reaching our Oscar!

    That’s an interesting idea. I’ll be sure to add it to the agenda of our next planning meeting around libraries of polls!

  11. include profanity filter in the "Edit Multiples" optons

    It seems like an over sight that it is missing. But actually, this is something a user will either want to use on every single poll or not care about. It seems it would be better to create a global option to always use the profanity filter on every poll.

  13. email participants scores

    I'm using the survey view to administer quizzes. I'd like a way to automatically give each student their personal score. Best would be if in response to submitting the quiz they get their score. But I'd also like a way to set up an email to mail them - if I have to score some open ended questions.

    Hi Binyomin,

    Thanks for using Poll Everywhere!

    This is an interesting idea! It’d certainly be really helpful. I’ve added this to the list of features we’re going to be discussing soon (we have these feature discussions a lot). I’ve attached your email address to it, so when we do implement it, we’ll let you know!

    Thanks for the feedback!

  14. more than 250 chars per question

    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.

    Hi Philip,

    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 support@polleverywhere.com so we can get it sorted out.

  17. Use the new groups option to send poll using account details

    I want to be able to create a poll then distribute it to one of my groups electronically, they can respond wherever they are.
    This will be extremely useful to setup polls to be responded too for flipped classroom feedback to ensure I can modify the next lesson if necessary, or collect important information over holidays or the weekend.

  19. Consecutive grouped polls

    When polls are grouped, be able to switch to the next one by clicking a NEXT button, or RANDOM within that group of polls.
