You only need to import participants if you need to track them, i.e. you want to know which participant answers what. This is commonly used by instructors who are using this for grading.
Steps to import your participants are as follows:
- Click Participants from the top bar.
- Click Add participant.
- A pop up will appear, click Import.
- A page will appear listing the 4 steps that you need to complete. Since you are under NUS account, all steps are compulsory including number 3 which is marked optional. Below are some information regarding the steps.
Step 1: You will be required to use Poll Everywhere excel template when importing your students. This excel has a first name and last name column. Since the class list from IVLE or LumiNUS does not separate students' names by first and last name, it is recommended that you put students' names in the first name column and their student number in the last name column.
Step 2: Upload the excel file by clicking the Choose File button.
Step 3: Create a participant group for your users. This can be in the format of ModuleCode_AcademicYear_Semester, example: WWZ001_1819_2.
Step 4: Click the Continue button where the excel file will be validated.
