Multiple choice activities are by far the most common type of activity used. In a Multiple choice activity the audience chooses one or more answers from a set of responses you provide. The Create an activity article provides step-by-step instructions for creating activities, including multiple choice questions, but here are some helpful tips as you think about your multiple choice activity.
Receiving responses: Multiple choice activities can receive responses via SMS text message, web, and the mobile app.
Live chart: Responses display live, as a bar or column chart which move and adjust in real time as responses come in.
Keep it simple: Multiple choice activities can have any number of response options, but be aware text will appear small on the results chart if you add too many.
A picture’s worth a thousand words: You can use images in place of words. In the image below, attendees choose the image of the fruit they prefer.
