What does it look like for Students?
Students will click on the Poll module and choose the correct class from the dropdown menu
They will then have immediate access to the poll. When they are finished answering, they will hit Submit.
Can I assign a poll to more than one class at a time? You can assign polls to one class at a time. If you would like to assign it to multiple classes, we recommend copying and pasting the contents into a new poll.
For a multiple choice poll, can I add or remove answer options? The number of answer options can't be changed; you will always have 4 answer options.
If I start the poll before I click "save and exit", can I go back and save it? You will be able to see the results of the poll immediately, but you can't go back and save the poll. You'll want to save it before you start it.
