Interesting. Is the goal to ensure that the students are actually physically present in class and prevent cheating?
Students do have access to their response history which is automatically updated. And, this will include whether they got each question correct or incorrect.
To get to the response history:
- click the menu icon on the top right of the pollev.com/Username page
- then select “Response history” in the menu
- the students can see their complete response history and whether they were correct or incorrect.
This is more of a workaround than giving an actual “score” in a notification or something, which I believe is more what you have in mind. We do have some other presenters who want to never show the correct answers or scores to students. So, there is some extra complexity here as well.
Thanks for the suggestion! We’ll definitely look into what this might take
Could you expand a bit on what you view the differences between a survey as a quiz? For example, are your concerns more around using us for assessment and you want to prevent cheating or have more grading options? Or, do you have something else in mind
Thanks for the feedback!

See my comment below:
Three changes would need to happen for this:
- The mobile app needs to offer the same options for surveys (like controlling locking/unlocking questions) as it does for individual poll questions. Currently I need to be logged into the desktop view of the PollEverywhere site on my phone in class, which is very awkward.
- Surveys need to have the option to calculate overall grades/points, not by individual question, and have this be reflected in the gradebook.
- Correct answers/point values need to be all customizable on one page instead of forcing us to click through each individual poll question, which is extremely time-consuming.
This is my first semester using PollEverywhere as an instructor and I have to say the lack of these features is a major problem. Unless they're adopted fairly quickly I won't be recommending the program to my university for institutional adoption.
