Edmodo Part 4: Polls

This post is the next in a series of posts to help schools and teachers that I work with get started with Edmodo.

In previous posts in this series on Edmodo, I showed how to use assignments and quizzes to assess student work. Polls are another effective way of gathering immediate feedback and assessing background knowledge. Polls are anonymous and students can select only one answer. Polls are just as easy to create as assignments and quizzes too!

Post a Poll

  1. Type the poll question.
  2. Enter possible answers. Click the Add Answer button if you need more options.
  3. Enter the group name and schedule the poll, if desired.
  4. Click the Send button.

Student View

When you post a poll it will appear in the student's Edmodo feed.
The student simply selects their choice and clicks the Vote button.

View Results

Locate the poll post and view the results. You can see how many students have participated and can refresh the results if you are viewing the results in real time. You can also Reply to leave a note for your students about the poll or it's results.

You can find more detailed instructions on polls in the Edmodo help files
