A Poll Everywhere ‘Activity’ is a single question or prompt you pose to your audience. Activities allow presenters to gather responses or questions from the audience.
Step 1. To create an activity, tap the New Activity button at the top left of your Activities page.
Step 2. Select the activity you would like to create for the audience from the Activity Creator Tool. You can choose from the main 7 activities (Multiple choice, Word cloud, Q&A, etc.) or find more templates when you hit the More button on the right.
Step 3. Enter your question or prompt.
Multiple choice Activities: Once you enter your prompt, enter the response options you want the audience to select from. To add more response options, click the plus Add Option button on the bottom left. To delete options, click the Trash icon on the far right of the option you wish to delete. To rearrange the order of the options, click and drag the 6 dots on the left side of your options.
Note: Multiple choice activity titles and response options are limited to 255 characters.
With Multiple choice Activities, you can use images as your prompt or response options by pasting a direct link or uploading one from your computer by clicking on the Picture icon.
You can designate correct response(s) to a Multiple choice Activity. Check the box to the left of the correct response option(s). A correct response will be highlighted green, when you reveal correctness on the Activity chart. You can set as many correct responses as you wish.
Word cloud, Q&A, or Open-ended Activities: Simply enter the question or prompt. For Word cloud and Open-ended activities, you can use images as your prompt by pasting a direct link or uploading one from your computer by clicking on the Picture icon. You cannot use images for a Q&A activity.
Note: Word cloud, Q&A, and Open-ended Activity prompts are limited to 255 characters.
Ranking Activity: To find the Ranking activity, click the More button on the right. This will reveal more Activity types for you to try, including Ranking.
Just like multiple choice, you can enter text or add images as answer options. Once you’ve entered all of your response options, you can use the 6 dots on the left to drag and reorder the options.
Note: Ranking Activity prompts and response options are limited to 255 characters.
Clickable image Activity: Select one of the provided images, or upload an image you would like the audience to interact with. Then enter your prompt.
Note: Clickable image Activity prompts and response region titles are limited to 255 characters.
If you like, you can define rectangular Regions on your image where clicks will be counted. To the right of your image you can name and manage the regions, similar to the way you manage response options for multiple choice polls. This includes the ability to mark the correct region(s).
Survey: Give your survey a title, and add a series of activities. Click the dropdown arrow next to the Activity type to select from Multiple choice, Word cloud, Q&A, Clickable image, Open-ended text, and Ranking. Once you select the Activity type, you enter your prompt as usual. To add more Activities, select Add another question under the last Activity.
Surveys allow you to ask your participants multiple questions at once. Everyone can answer the questions privately at their own pace. Surveys are great for quizzes, pre- and post-training assessments, and questionnaires.
Tip: Surveys and groups can be edited after the creation process, so don't fret if it's not perfect right away.
Note: Survey titles are limited to 255 characters. Each subsequent activity is subject to the same character limits as its respective activity.
Competition: Competitions are a series of Multiple choice activities. Once you give your Competition a title, you can add as many Multiple choice activities as you wish. The process of creating each question is the same as creating any Multiple choice activity (see Multiple choice section above), with the exception that each question must include at least one correct answer.
Note: Competition titles are limited to 255 characters. Each Multiple choice activity within the Competition is subject to the same character limits as a regular Multiple choice activity.
Step 4. When you're ready, assign the activity to a Group by opening the dropdown section at the bottom of the Activity creator tool and select the group you want to add it to. If you don’t choose a group, your Activity can be found in your Default group.
Once that is done, click the Create button to start presenting your activity and save it to your account. If you’re creating bulk Activities, click Add another activity instead and this will save your Activity and take you back to the Activity creator tool, where you can create more.
That's it! Continue to add as many activities as you like.
