(Nov. 13, 2014) Learn ways Canvas polls, quizzes, surveys, and assignments can be leveraged from a mobile device as formative assessments in your classroom. [Presenters: Biray Seitz, Ryan Seilhamer, Tommi Barrett-Greenly]
There are several great ideas in this video. I have downloaded the Canvas Polls app, but I have not had a chance to apply it in a course yet. I also found it interesting that Google Forms can be embedded within Canvas. I was not aware of this. Something else for me to play with.
Formative assessment is a big focus for our staff at the moment. This will be a big selling point for using Canvas for us. Thank you!
Will Canvas Polls be wrapped into Canvas Student in the next iteration?
Excellent presentation. I like the tip to use the option for one question at a time for students who might be taking a quiz on a mobile device. The hassle factor is probably worse for the student on a mobile device who has to make sure they swipe everywhere compared to a student on a laptop or desktop who has to do a bunch of extra clicks.
Another terrific video Ryan Seilhamer. I downloaded the Canvas Polls app, I don't see how to assign a poll to a class. Do the polls provide me with feedback from specific individuals or does it just provbide me with numbers and/or percentages?
Jim Wolf: Thanks, I appreciate the feedback. As for Canvas Polls, you will only get anonymous group feedback. The ability to view individual feedback doesn't current exist.
As for adding a poll to a class, I'd like to direct you to the Canvas Poll guides. These should help you get started:
