    Are you asking to have the student’s name display on the pollev.com/:Username or web response page?

    I assume you would be walking around a lab like classroom where they are using desktop or laptop computers to respond. Does that sound right?

    Currently we just have a “hamburger” icon (those three horizontal lines) on the top right. We could replace that with the student’s first name if they are logged in. I’ll bring it up with the team and see if there are any dangers or complexities that I’m missing, but I think this should be straightforward.

    That’s an interesting use case. I can understand why this would be helpful in a “lab” type setting. The way you describe it, to have the screen darken after a few seconds, would go against our accessibility guidelines for ADA compliance. We might be able to get by this with an “opt-in” feature that you could select. I would need to ask our design team if they have any ideas

    One thing, have you tried our multi-page survey features at all? It’s designed for a more asynchronous teaching style to let students answer questions at their own pace. However, it does let them answer a question > click Next > and this takes them to the next poll question in the survey. At this point the students could discuss in pairs/groups about the question they just answered and then make adjustments/comments in a followup question. You can see a bit…

    Hi Christine,

    Could you give me a little more detail about what is happening with your Canvas Account? You should be able to export our Gradebook accounts to any Canvas Account that is integrated with Poll Everywhere. Worst case scenario it might take another user/login like a TA to upload the Gradebook to a separate Canvas account provided it is integrated on the backend.

    If this sounds like what you are having trouble with, can you email us at: support@polleverywhere.com and give us a few more details? We’ll do our best to get to the bottom of this and see what we can do

    Hope this helps!

    Good morning Brian,

    Our course has a teaching staff that requires access to PollEv for our class. This means multiple people would have to access the same PollEv account in order to add in new polls, set up the polling laptop if another person is sick or cannot make it to lecture, grade polls, upload grades to Canvas etc. At University of Washington using the SSO for one Canvas account means that multiple people using the class' PollEv account would need to sign in to another person's Canvas account. This is a huge security risk as it allows others to access another individual's Canvas account, Canvas settings, and additional personal information. As a work around we use a Shared Canvas account and these accounts cannot upload grades to Canvas, thus I end up downloading the grades and uploading them to our class's gradebook via my personal Canvas account. If a PollEv teaching staff account could be created that is not tied to any one person's Canvas account that could be accessed by multiple authorized Canvas accounts, then this would resolve issues on our end and could speed up grade submission greatly.

    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…

    Include the option to change the threshold for responses so it isn't just 95%.

    We are actually working on a large project right now that should really help with grading polls. We are basically working on re-doing our entire poll creation process (and we’re finally close enough to talk about it).

    This will have greater customization and editing for poll questions at the creation stage (including grading). I do not believe this is currently slated to include increased support to our Weighted Grading feature (https://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/knowledgebase/articles/799830) – which is currently in beta testing. But, this should be an easier process soon

    I will update this post when we are about to send out the new update
