Send a Poll / Send a Wellness Check (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. Wellness Checks let teachers quickly gauge students' Social-Emotional well-being.

Note: Polls have a 140 character limit. Once a Poll has been sent to a Class, you cannot edit it. Polls are anonymous (Teachers cannot see which student gave which response). If you need to see student responses, try sending a one-question Quiz, which allows the teacher to see individual responses.
