    I can see how this could be a problem, especially in a lab or large lecture hall where most students would be responding from laptops. It’s a little easier than a small cell phone screen. There is certainly the tried and true method of peaking at your classmates paper.

    We show the option that a student selected to allow them to change their answer (assuming our Clear response feature is enabled on the poll question) and to provide some feedback for the student to see if they got the question correct. And, we would like to have this continue to be our default setup.

    We could make a toggle switch for you to go on anti-cheat mode or the like for more preventative measures. May I ask, would you want this setting on all of your poll questions or are there poll questions where you would want the student’s to…

    Thanks Brian. A toggle that allows us to go into "anti-cheat" mode would be great.

    Anti-cheat mode could be:
    - highlight all responses
    - highlight the chosen response for 1 second, then highlight all responses
    - highlight all responses, with a thin, hard-to-see-from-3-feet outline on the chosen response

    I'd want this as the default option for all my questions. But any toggle would do.

    A little more info, if you're curious on PollEverywhere usage in classrooms:
    In the class I teach (500+ students in a large lecture hall), I use a tablet connected to a display, and we have a separate, dedicated PollEverywhere laptop. Why? Mostly because I don't always know where questions will be in the lecture. We might do a question once, we might do it twice ("chat with your neighbors and poll in again"), I might make up a question on the fly. So we load 20 blank questions (responses labelled 1, 2, 3, 4, 5...), and I open the polls on the PollEverywhere laptop as needed. The questions & responses themselves are displayed on the tablet. We find this setup quite easy.

    This is a problem in my large lecture class (500+ students), too. We have caught students IMing poll responses to others who are not present. Any student with internet and a friend can respond to polls. Unfortunately, a password would also be IMed to the friend. I'm not sure a way around this.

    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…

    What if all responses highlighted once a response was chosen? This way, students would know their response was recorded, but couldn't see their neighbors' responses?

    In my class, I essentially can't have any respond-on-your-own poll questions, because students can't help but see what their neighbors' responded. It's my #1 issue with PollEverywhere.

    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
