Step 2. Click Create or the + button from the left bar to start creating questions.
Tips: Newly created poll will be put under Ungrouped. You may want to group questions that belong to the same session so that the setting and report can be set and generated together.
Step 3 (if required). Import students as participants. This is if you want to track students and their responses.
Please refer to this guide on how to import your participants.
After you have import your participants, you need to restrict your polls to registered participants:
- Select your group.
- Click Edit.
- On Who can participate? option, set it to Restrict to registered participants only.
- Click Apply.
Step 4. Do either one of the following:
Option 1: Insert the poll into PowerPoint, Key note, or Google Slides and then run the slides. Make sure the plugin for the software has already been installed in the computer that you use to create and present the slides. Also make sure that you are logged in in the plugin.

Each instructor will have an instructor code that is attached to a url that students can go to respond to the questions. The url to respond to the questions will be in the following format: https://pollev.com/instructorCode
