An interactive polling tool, Poll Everywhere allows you to create multiple choice question polls directly in Teams. Ask questions or take a vote, and generate results in real-time.
Many faculty find a quick poll at the beginning of a class can activate the students’ prior knowledge and give insights as to what needs to be focussed on. Polls can also provide a means to check-in with students during class to access the pace of lessons and gauge if students are comfortable with moving on from what has already been taught. Teachers can also utilize polls to gain feedback from students, such as determining if review is necessary and/or determining which topics students are most confident in and which they struggle with.
Find Poll Everywhere in the app menu to gather feedback right in your Teams chats and conversations. Enter your question and response options so participants can respond by selecting from the available answer choices.
Sign up for a free account and log into your Poll Everywhere account to start engaging teammates live in Teams. The activities you create in your channels will automatically save to your account, where you can adjust advanced settings and view detailed results at any time.
You can start a poll directly in Teams by simply clicking the Poll Everywhere icon within your Teams tool bar. From here, you can title your poll, add multiple choice options, and launch the poll by clicking Create activity. Participants can answer the poll directly in Teams and results will be generated in real-time.
Poll Everywhere may also appear in your menu under the text box.
