Poll Everywhere FAQs
How do I get an account?
Create a Help Desk ticket at help.pace.edu Information Technology > Educational Media > Poll Everywhere.
Don't my students need to get registered for me to be able to tally responses by student?
Once you are logged into PollEv, all you need to do is add your students as participants. When you click on the “participants” tab on the top left, there will be an orange button called “Add Participants.” A URL will generate for you to send to everyone in your class. Once your students click the link, they will see the same account creation screen you did.
How do I grade the poll responses?
Once all your participants are in, you can generate grades from the “Reports tab,” by adding their responses to each poll to a generic report. Once the generic report is generated, you can choose to have them graded. Choose the “report card” option and make sure all participant data is checked via the radio buttons on the left side of the screen. To ensure proper grading, focus on using Polls can be programed with a correct answer (ex. Multiple Choice, True/False, Clickable Image), and limit participants to only 1 response.
I had been using a free account under a gmail password. Is there any way I can import those polls or combine these accounts?
When making your account creation Help Desk ticket, include the email address that you previously used to sign in. This will let Ed Media know to create the account with your old email address. All the old polls and data will still be under that username.
It is also possible to change your email address once you are in the system.
What about faculty who bring their own laptops in to classrooms to teach – how can they get the Poll Everywhere Presenter App?
They can download the free Poll Everywhere presenter app here: http://www.polleverywhere.com/app.
Is there any functionality that would be useful for online courses?
Suggested process: At the end of each weekly topic create a few key questions about the concepts. Provide a close date and time for the poll. At the end of the poll, collected responses and share with students (in a discussion forum). Encourage students to volunteer explanation of correct response and discuss the situation. – Regis College: http://rhchp.regis.edu/FacultyResourceSite/pdfs/polleverywhere_online.pdf
Can student groups use this? How would they go about it?
Yes, they would need to request an account with Ed Media if they want to create their own polls. They can also use it to review course material.
Poll Everywhere suggests that students get to work in small groups or alone to solve the problem and answer the poll. If they’ve done the groundwork and understood the content, they respond correctly and get a lecture point. If they’re having trouble, they get to try again at home, after class.
Step 1: Post the content of your lectures online as a video or PDF. Instruct students to watch the video and then practice solving introductory problems.
Step 2: When class begins, present another introductory problem as a multiple choice poll. Allow students to work out their answers in small groups, if necessary. Watch results roll in.
Step 3: Reveal the correct response. If you see the need, help students understand where they went wrong, and how to attack the problem in a more productive way.
i>clicker is an audience response system that allows students to instantly give feedback or answers to questions asked by the instructor. This is similar to what the audience uses in “Who Wants to be a Millionaire” to help the contestant. In our case the technology is being applied in a learning environment. The Educational Media Center offices at the campuses in NYC and Pleasantville have been working with faculty to test and implement i>clickers in the learning environment.
If you want to learn more about this product or to schedule a training session for i>clickers, contact your local Educational Media Center Ed Media Center (see contact info below).
How many i>clickers do we have?
NYC: One set of 30 i>clickers and one set of 50 i>clickers PLV: Three sets with 30 i>clickers each

Interactive Whiteboards display the contents of a PC screen directly onto the board. They are available in select classrooms across all campuses. Here is some information about two types of interactive whiteboards we have at Pace.
Up to three users can simultaneously use the interactive features and manipulate the classroom desktop. Hand gesture recognition software allows users to perform tasks like copying, pasting, scrolling, and zooming all with the swipe of a finger. Panaboard notebook software allows users to write on the interactive board as well as save notes, annotations, screenshots etc.
