Early success for Poll Everywhere, UW’s new classroom response system
UW students in at least 75 courses have generated more than a half million responses to polls and quizzes on their own devices using Poll Everywhere, a new classroom response system UW-IT made available autumn quarter 2016. By mid-quarter, 846 people have created 7,457 polls involving more than 10 thousand people. Survey data from UW students, backed by a ASUW Student Senate resolution, indicated that students strongly prefer using personal mobile devices or laptops rather than purchased clickers for in-class audience response activities.
