Poll Everywhere is a tool used to gather live responses in various formats including polls, open-ended questions, multiple-choice questions, etc. One feature of Poll Everywhere is that you can have students order or rate responses. You can also embed Poll Everywhere into your PowerPoint presentations. For more information, head to Poll Everywhere's support page.
The free version is good for classes of less than 40 students.
Don't forget to activate your polls!
Downloading and installing the PowerPoint and Google Sheets plugins (.exe files) can be a bit annoying especially if you do not have admin privileges on your device.
Changing the poll and display settings may mean needing to read the manual.
Presenters can get a report of engagement and answers.
Socrative quizzes can be run live in class or assigned for homework. First, the professor logs in and starts a quiz. Then, students use the student app (or the student web-based login) to "join" the professor's classroom and complete the quiz at their own pace. There are a variety of quiz types, including multiple-choice, short answer and even a fun "Space Race" game. Once the quiz is over, the professor can view or download a report of students' scores. For quick, formative feedback, the professor can choose to display a live score chart to the class, hide students' names and review any question(s) that most students answered incorrectly.
