My participants are students and it would be great if they had the following in their displays: 1) groups in which they are enrolled, 2) current participation rate (% of total questions responded), 3) current "correctness" rate, 4) which questions that were presented that they did not respond to. I would also like to see the ability to sync multiple emails to an account so they can respond with both their school and personal accounts.
This is great, thanks for the request! We are in some of the very initial design stages for what we’re calling a “Participant Dashboard” which students would be able to easily access from their mobile devices or computers and review this type of information.
Enrolled groups and a “correctness rate” as a proxy for their grade are both doable. The participation rate and generally displaying poll questions they did not respond to is much tougher. With faculty who use Poll Everywhere across multiple courses it is difficult for us to currently know which group/class the polls are for. And, we have some users who do not want to show questions participants did not answer to prevent any cheating or as an incentive to show up to class and answer. So, there are some business concerns as well for that.
Would it work for you all if we had an ability to “send” poll questions to students’ Poll Everywhere accounts that they can then review on their own time? The workflow would be
- you have class and the student’s respond to some polls
- after class you click a button to “Send these poll questions for review”
- select the Group of Students to receive these review questions
- students log into their Poll Everywhere account on their phones/computers > are able to see all the questions for review, their responses to them, and if they were correct/incorrect

Moodle integration is extremely limited. There is no point in having separate scores for Participation and Correct Responses if these cannot be also separately exported to Moodle. Furthermore, PollEverywhere is so versatile in terms of the different Poll types it can be used for multiple different types of exercise. However, there should be an option to have them imported separately into Moodle into different categories. Lastly it would be great if one could do one Moodle import every week without overwriting the previous scores. So each new Moodle import should create a new PollEverywhere Item in Moodle.

I, and many of my colleagues, do not want to use "correctness rate" as a proxy for grade because we are grading by participation and not by correctness. We want students to feel encouraged to answer, even if their answers are incorrect, so that they may learn. We also sometimes may ask questions that do not have a right or a wrong answer to solicit student feedback. And if the poll has closed, I see no reason for concern about "cheating." So I would strongly recommend reconsidering your position on not including a participation rate. If you were able to add a feature on the instructor side allowing instructors to link poll questions to specific classes, this would not be difficult to implement.
I also think that the idea of leaving all polls available for students to review afterward would be useful.
