How can we improve Poll Everywhere?

You've used all your votes and won't be able to post a new idea, but you can still search and comment on existing ideas.

There are two ways to get more votes:

  • When an admin closes an idea you've voted on, you'll get your votes back from that idea.
  • You can remove your votes from an open idea you support.
  • To see ideas you have already voted on, select the "My feedback" filter and select "My open ideas".

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

If a similar idea already exists, you can support and comment on it.

If it doesn't exist, you can post your idea so others can support it.

Enter your idea and we'll search to see if someone has already suggested it.

    We’re working on solving this through two different ways with our PowerPoint, Keynote, and Google Slides integrations.

    1. We’re working on creating a quick and easy way to insert up to date screenshots of your polls into your slide deck with a single button. This way you can easily create “Review Decks” to send out after class or to post on your LMS.

    2. This is the real interesting one (for me anyway). We’re going to change the old grey placeholder image with a screenshot of the poll. So, you’ll be able to see your poll question, answer choices, and responses in edit mode > go to presentation mode > and it will load our live polls as normal. This will be a longer project for us because we’ll need to work out how often to update these screenshots and to make sure they’ll work with all the different…

  2. For multipule resonse such as 2 or more responses to a poll will give full credit or no credit at all (no partial credit/weighted grading).

    For a multiple choice question: 4 of the 5 possible responses will be correct and be assigned one point total. If all four responses are selected with "Mark as Correct", and a student doesn’t select all 4 correct answers then they will receive a zero

    We do have a weighted grading feature that can be enabled from our Features lab section. It’s pretty stable, but we do not have all the features we want in it yet to be completely released by default. You can turn it on and try it out by doing the following:
    1. Click on the gear icon on the top right of the page and go to Settings
    2. Select Features lab on the left side of settings
    3. scroll down and click the Enabled button for Weighted grading
    4. click the Apply labs settings button at the bottom of the page

    Then for any Multiple Choice Poll you can go to Edit > and assign specific points for each answer choice

  3. Team-based quiz games

    Easier team-based game functionality would be great!
