Multiple choice activities are by far the most common type of activity used. In a Multiple choice activity, the audience chooses one or more options 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 the web, SMS text message, and the Poll Everywhere mobile app.
Live chart: Responses display live, as a bar or column chart which moves and adjusts in real time as responses come in.
Set a correct response: You can designate correct responses to a Multiple choice activity. If you are on certain paid plans, you can grade the responses in a report.
Keep it simple: Multiple choice activities can have a limited number of response options. Be aware text will appear small on the results chart if there are too many. Learn more about additional response options with the Import question method.
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. Learn more about how to Add Image to the Activity.
They’re versatile: Multiple choice questions are a safe choice for a large class or a company town hall, as a traditional A, B, C, as a true or false question, or as a Likert scale.
The Poll Everywhere blog has a plethora of articles on the uses and features of multiple choice activities.
