This article deals with media published to classes in an Echo360 course. For interactive media embedded in an LMS/VLE course, use the Polling tab on the media details page to see polling responses for both LMS and Echo360 course-published media. See also embedding interactive media in your LMS/VLE.
The Polling Tab for a course, shown in the below figure, allows you to see all of the responses given to the polling questions included in both slide decks and interactive media published to classes in the course.
The top section of the Polling Tab includes an Overview ribbon, which provides at-a-glance performance data for ALL polling questions published across all classes/lessons in the course.
Total Response Rate is a percentage of POSSIBLE responses given to polls across the section. This is a calculation of number of enrolled students times the number of polls in all media in the section (both presentations and interactive media), divided by the actual number of responses.
Total Correct is the total number of correct vs incorrect responses given to polls across the section. The calculation ONLY takes into account polls that can and do have a correct response identified.
Below the Overview you will find two drop-down lists. The Lesson drop-down list allows you to select a particular class or lesson to view polling responses for.
The Poll Question drop-down list allows you to see summary polling response data across the class, or to select a particular Poll Question to see detailed response data. All is selected by default.
Student Responses appear at the bottom of the page and provide either summary or detail response information, corresponding with the Lesson and Poll Question selections. This is discussed in more detail below.
The student response information includes both the student's response as well as the date and time the student responded. This can be useful if you gave a deadline for viewing the media and answering the included questions. More specifically:
- For interactive media, the date/time is when the student responded or saw the question (if no response was given).
- For polling slides in a presentation, the date/time is for the most recent response given, as students can edit their responses up until the moment an instructor closes polling for the slide.
If the student has not seen or responded to the poll, the time/date field is blank.
To view responses to polling questions
- Navigate into a course and open the Polling tab, identified in the above figure.
- Select a Lesson from the drop-down list. The list contains only those classes that have interactive media or slide decks with polling slides.
Notice that the Poll Question drop-down changes to All, as shown in the below figure. The page changes to provide summary information about all polls in the selected class' media.
- Select a Poll Question from the drop-down list to view detailed response information for that poll.
Regardless of whether you view All or select a particular question, the area below the drop-down lists changes to show data appropriate to your selection. Both the summary and the detailed polling response data is described in more detail in the next sections on this page.
The Overview ribbon, however, does not change with any page selections. The overview applies to all polls in all classes across the course.
Summary Polling Response Data
Once you select a Lesson, the Poll Question drop-down automatically selects "All" as shown in the above procedure. The page changes to provide summary information for all polls in the media, as well as student summary data about their responses to all of the polls in the media.
The Polls Summary table appears if the Poll Question selection is All. It includes the following information:
- Poll number and type - The polls are listed in the order in which they appear in the media, along with the type of poll it is. Each is also an active link that provides more detail as described below.
- Correct Response - This is the percentage (and count) of respondents that answered the question correctly. It is NOT a percentage of course enrollees who responded correctly. The percentage only applies to those users who have actually responded. If there is NO correct answer (either marked or possible) this field is blank.
- Incorrect Response - This is the percentage (and count) of respondents that answered the question incorrectly. It is NOT a percentage of course enrollees who responded incorrectly. The percentage only applies to those users who have actually responded. if there is NO correct answer possible, this field is blank.
- No Response - This is the percentage (and count) of students who have not responded to each poll. Unlike the Correct/Incorrect response data, this percentage and count are of the total number of students who are enrolled in this Echo360 course.
- Seen and Unseen - This is the percentage (and count) of students who have either seen or not seen each poll. Like the No Response numbers, these are a percentage of the total number students enrolled in this Echo360 course.
Click on the Poll Number - Poll Type link to open a Poll Performance popup modal, containing more detailed information about the responses given to the selected poll. This is the SAME information you would see if you select a specific poll from the Polling Question drop-down list.
This poll-specific performance information is described later on this page, in the sections describing each poll-type's information.
The Student Responses Summary provides student response information for all polls in the media, and includes the following data for each student:
- User Name - The name of the student. This is an active link that provides detailed information about this student's responses, as described below.
- User Email - The email address of the student.
- Correct Response - The percentage and count of the number of POSSIBLE correct answers submitted by the student. Does NOT include any polls that do not or cannot nave correct answers identified.
- Total Response Rate - The percentage and count of the number of responses given by this student against the total number of polls in this media.
Click on a User Name link to open a popup modal showing this student's responses to each poll in the media. This is the SAME information you would see for this student in the Student Responses table, if you select a specific poll from the Polling Question drop-down list.
Detailed Polling Response Data
If you select BOTH a Lesson and a Polling Question from the drop-down lists, the area below changes to show detailed information about the selected poll, including the question itself and both the provided response options (if any) and given responses.
If there is an image with the poll, the image is shown (applies to multiple choice with embedded media or image quiz poll). If there is a correct answer identified, this is also indicated. Examples are shown in more detail in the poll-type-specific sections later on this page.
Below the summary of the poll itself, the individual student responses are listed as described here.
Student Response Details
Below the poll question area is the list of students enrolled in the course. Each occupies their own row containing the student name, their response (if any) to the poll, and the date/time of their response. If there is no response, the response area shows "Seen" or "Unseen" indicating whether or not the student has viewed the poll at all. For polling slides this will read "No Response" if the student has not responded.
The student list is a table that can be sorted by Student Name, Response, or Date (date/time). In addition, the top of the table provides a summary of responses to this poll.
If your course has more than 25 students enrolled, there are paging controls at the bottom, to allow you to page through the student list. In addition, the bottom of the list shows the time zone (local) being used to show the date and time of student responses.
If there is a correct answer identified for the poll, each student response is accompanied by a green checkmark or a red X indicating whether or not the response was correct. If the poll required a Justification, the text entered by the student is also shown along with their response.
Multiple Choice Poll Responses
The below figure shows a Multiple Choice type poll. There is a correct answer identified, indicated by highlighting and a checkmark in the table. The table also shows how many and what percentage of students responded with which selection. A multiple choice poll without a correct answer identified looks the same, but without the highlighting or the checkmark.
Scroll down from the question area to find the student list, shown below. Each column can be clicked on to sort the table, and a summary of responses appears at the top of the table, as described in the section at the top of this page.
If the student did not respond, the entry shows either Seen or Unseen, depending on if they viewed the poll or not.
Use the checkboxes next to each multiple choice response option to filter the student list, showing only those students who gave the selected response(s). This is shown in the below figure.
If the poll required a justification, the student entry is shown along with their response. The ordered list section below shows a student list with responses and justifications for their responses.
Short Answer Poll Responses
Since a "correct" answer cannot be identified, the Short Answer poll simply provides the question text followed by the list of students and each student's response.
Like other poll types, the Response area of the student list includes Seen if the student viewed the poll but did not respond, and Unseen if the student has not viewed the poll at all.
Ordered List Poll Responses
The Ordered List poll, like the multiple choice poll, shows the question and the possible responses in the top section of the page. If there is NO correct answer identified, the response options are listed in the same order they appear in the poll. This is the case in the below figure.
If there is a correct order identified, the options are listed in the CORRECT order as identified for the poll. This is the case in the following figure. Note that the letter given for each option corresponds with the letter/order that option was given in the polling question when presented to students.
Each option row indicates how many (and what percentage of) users put that selection into the noted position (1, 2, 3, 4, etc.). If there is a correct order identified, the "correct" location for each option is highlighted, as is shown in the above figure.
Scroll down to the student list, and each student who responded is shown with the letter order of their response. The student rows may also contain green checkmark or a red X indicating whether or not their response was correct, but only if a correct order was identified.
The below figure shows student responses to an ordered list poll that does not have a correct order identified. The poll also required justifications from each student, and these text entries are shown with each student's ordered item response.
Numeric Poll Responses
The Numeric poll provides the question and the correct answer (or range) in the top section of the page, then a list of students and their responses below. Each response is shown with a green checkmark or a red X to indicate whether or not it qualifies as a correct response.
Image Quiz Poll Responses
For image quiz polls, the top section of the Polling tab shows the question text along with the image used for the poll. The image also shows the "correct answer" area, if one is identified, and square dots showing all of the student responses given.
Since Image quiz polling questions do not have "listable" responses, identifying which response was given by which student is a little different. You must select each student row to see their response. The dot for that student's answer turns blue. The student rows do, however, indicate if the student's selection was "correct" or not.
To view image quiz polling responses
- Open the Polling page and use the Lesson drop-down list to select a class.
- Use the Polling Question drop-down list to select an image quiz poll.
The image and the question, along with all user responses appear as shown and described above.
- Scroll down to the student list to see who responded and whether their response was correct (if a correct area was identified). Note that if you have more than 25 students in the course, you may need to use the paging controls to see more of the student list.
- Click on a student row.
Notice that one of the square dots now shows blue (or darker than the others). This is the selected student's response to the poll and is shown in the below figure.
- Select another student to view their response placement.
Remember that you can sort the student table by name, their response, or date of response. And that there are paging controls at the bottom of the student table, if there are more than 25 students in the course.
