You can add multiple choice type polls to a presentation or interactive media.
Multiple choice polls include question text and a list of possible answer choices. You can mark one or more response as the correct one, or none if there is no "correct" answer. You can also use the checkbox to indicate whether the students must provide a justification or follow up explanation with their response. Students submit an answer and are then asked to enter a justification into a text box if required.
To create a multiple choice poll
- Open the presentation or video/interactive media from your library and select Edit Media for a presentation or Add Poll/Edit Polls for a video or interactive media.
Alternately, if you are editing from the section's class list, click the media icon and select Details from the icon menu. This opens the media details page exposing the above noted commands.
- For a Presentation select ADD POLL as shown below.
- For interactive media, select Create A Poll as shown below.
- Select the Multiple choice option. The Create a multiple choice poll form appears.
- If this poll is being placed in interactive media, enter or confirm the Poll time placement field. It corresponds to the location of playback when the Create a poll button was clicked. This field does NOT appear for presentations.
- Enter Question text. You can enter up to 1000 characters.
- If appropriate, enable the Embed media checkbox, and upload an image or paste an embeddable URL to provide context for the question.
- If you have uploaded an image to the poll, enter brief but descriptive Alt Text for the image. The field has a 500 character limit. This is optional but recommended.
Alt text is "read" by screen readers to describe the image and provide context for non-sighted and low-sighted users. For tips on how to best use alt-text, see https://webaim.org/techniques/alttext/.
- Add the answer options
- If applicable, designate the correct answer(s).
Optional: If you want students to select ALL correct answers before marking them as correct, click the checkbox labeled as such located above the answer entries.
- If you want students to elaborate on their answer(s), click Require justification. Requiring justifications will preclude students from being able to respond via SMS.
- Click the Feedback chevron to expand the dialog box and show the Feedback text fields available, as shown in the below figure.
- If desired, enter correct and/or incorrect response feedback to students, or more generalized feedback for the poll as a whole. You can enter up to 1000 characters in each field.
This is optional.
The Feedback you enter appears in Interactive Media polls after the student submits an answer, and in Presentation polls after the poll is closed for further responses.
- Click DONE.
The multiple choice poll is added to either your presentation or interactive media. You may want to preview the completed poll before finalizing your additions or edits, so that you are sure it appears the way you want it to.
