Create and Send a Poll (Teacher)

Polls are a great way to get immediate feedback on an Assignment, reading, or current event. They can be used to activate background knowledge for students.They are easy to create and administer:

  1. Click on the "Poll" tab in the top toolbar.
  2. Click in the Question field and type your question.
  3. Type in answer choices in the fields for Answer #1 and Answer #2.
  4. Click "Add Answer" if you would like to add more answer choices.
  5. Click in the "Send to" field and choose a Group, student, or teacher to send the Poll to.
  6. Click on the "Send Later" icon post-schedulepost.png below the "Send to" field to send it out in the future. If you don't click "Send Later", it will be sent out immediately.
  7. When finished, click the "Send" button.

Note: Polls have a 140 character limit. Once you send out a Poll, you cannot edit the Poll. Also, Teachers cannot see which student gave which response. If you need a non-anonymous Poll, try giving a one question Quiz, then you'll be able to see the individual results.
