If you are using your poll for marks and want responses associated with users, you will have to complete a few tasks to accomplish this.
- Within the poll you create you must choose Registered Participants from the Who Can Respond area located on the right of the screen in the poll editing area.
- Have your students pre-register as participants on your account.
You invite participants (students) by email, or distribute your registration link. They verify their mobile phone number and create a participant login for PollEverywhere. This way you can see who answered no matter what the device they use (laptop, smartphone, text message).
To access the invitation link, choose Participants from the top of the screen.
Then click Invite New Participants from the left side of the screen.
Copy the link in the Share an Invitiation Link area. Paste within your email and send to your students.
NOTE: Do not email invitations from polleverywhere.com. Even though it is an option, the email will not go through because the polleverywhere.com account does not have access to send mail to your class list.
To pull the data from a poll, you will have to generate a report and download the csv. See the tutorial on generating reports for more details.
