Allow Credit/No Credit Responses
Students enjoy the text wall and word cloud options, but currently cannot get points for them. Having a way to assign credit for responses given, without limiting students to specific words, would be a marked improvement to PollEverywhere's functionality. Making the innovative response patterns Credit/No Credit would really motivate and innovate the classroom.
This is interesting. Right now we do give a Participation Score with our Gradebook report that will give credit to students who respond to our Open Ended Poll like Word Cloud and Text Wall. However, our LMS integrations with Blackboard and Canvas do not send this participation score. They only receive the Correctness score. I suspect this is what is happening for you all.
I have opened up a request with our Integrations Team to look into the difficulty/complexity to send a “grade” for our open ended polls. We have to check with Blackboard and Canvas to find the best way to send this information.
Does that sound like it’s describing your situation?

As an educator, I want to reveal the correct answer to each poll taken while in a class, but when I export to my LMS (Blackboard, in my case).
But when I export, I'd like to have the option to export the raw or % participation value (e.g., number / % of questions the student responded to during the session).
This will allow me to keep track of student participation in Blackboard, while at the same time allowing the students to understand which is the correct answer.
