    This would be really helpful for us too, and is similar to this recommendation as well (https://polleverywhere.uservoice.com/forums/151441-ideas/suggestions/35138917-images-to-open-ended-questions).

    As it is, Poll Everywhere does NOT work well if the question prompt is a large, detailed image or more than a sentence (such as a case or lines of code as in this example). What we need is an option to show ONLY the prompt on the screen (large image/case/code) while the students see an abbreviated prompt and their response options on their devices (multiple choice or open-ended). Then the responses/chart could be toggled on/off or could be on a subsequent slide.

    What I currently recommend to faculty who want this sort of experience is to launch the question using a separate device (such as a phone) while viewing a non-PE slide, and then follow that slide with the chart. However, this gets away from the "one device" convenience of your PowerPoint integration.

    What sorts of text controls did you have in mind? We do have a few options right now such as using LaTeX for math or science equations and then we also have the ability to add italics, break lines, and bold characters in the questions.

    Could you give us a few examples of things you would like to add?

    For info on LaTeX:https://www.polleverywhere.com/support/articles/power-users/latex

    For info on italics, bold, and break lines: https://www.polleverywhere.com/blog/new-features-roundup-bold-italics-and-breaks/

    Thanks for the feedback!

    Sub/super scripts are another instance where this has come up. For faculty who are unfamiliar with LaTeX learning it for just the sake of doing some basic formatting is burdensome. Plus, I've noticed that LaTeX formatting impacts the look/feel of text overall. In a question where only one of the multiple choice options included LaTeX, the text/font that answer choice appeared significantly bigger than the other options.

    How about tables and bulleted lists? I'm working on documentation and tools to help faculty transition from Learning Catalytics to PE, and some have tables in the question prompt. Without HTML formatting, we would need to turn that table into an image.

    This came up while talking with faculty participating in our Poll Everywhere pilot. It would be useful to have a gauge that could tell a presenter what percentage of the participants who have joined the session have responded. I could see it as an update to the response counter in the lower right hand corner that shows responses as a percentage or fraction "25/50 responded".

    Thanks for the feedback! That’s an interesting request. Do you have a preference for using tags over, say, a more hierarchical folder system?

    I know there’s been requests for both and they address similar, but different problems. Regardless, thank you for the details feedback! I’ll pass this along to the team

    I'm leaning more towards "Tags" because they're more flexible than a hierarchical structure, which really only allows for a poll to be in one place. If I have tags I can label a poll with a specific course and week (example: "bio101wk2") AND for the subject matter if I need to re-use it somewhere else (example: "Mitosis"). I can also tag the question for a different course at the same time ("bio201wk4"). If the structure is hierarchical I really only get one category tree to apply unless I copy the poll.

    Lastly, I think having tags that are also searchable by students will make the "response history" a more useful study too. In-class questions tend to be big study tools here, and at the moment the response history isn't easy to use in that regard. However, if I could search my polls by tag (either chapter, lecture, or topic) I could more easily find the relevant in-class questions to study.

    This is currently possible by creating two separate polls and then writing your own instructions (on a slide or handout for example).

    Combining two on the same visual chart would be interesting. Any ideas/concepts on what that would look like?

    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
