Asking Students to Vote

Asking Students to Vote

Overview

A teacher can send a single statement or question to one or more student devices and view the student responses in real-time. Statements and questions can be True/False or Multiple Choice. This is a great way to get a quick response from the class to a question such as "Did that make sense?".

  

Sending a Question to Student Computers

  1. Select one or more student computers from the Teacher Console. If none are selected, the question will be sent to ALL students.
  2. Click the Vote button on the toolbar.
  3. Type the question and answers the way you want it displayed to students.
  4. Select either True/False or Multiple Choice to determine the options available to students.
  5. Click the Send to push the question to the student computers.


As students answer the question, their responses will be displayed in real-time in the Teacher Console window where the question was configured. The teacher can click the Details to view and export a .CSV file of each student's specific answer.
