How to Require that Students Log-in to Your Existing Activities

We strongly recommend that you enable the "Restrict to registered participants only " setting on all of your Poll Everywhere activities. Doing so will:

  • Ensure that you are getting accurate student participation data.
  • Discourage inappropriate behavior.
  • Help Tufts manage the per-student costs of our Poll Everywhere license.

If you did not enable this setting on your existing activities or are unsure whether the setting is enabled, follow these steps to make sure.

Log in to Poll Everywhere.com

Click the "Check Mark" button at the top of the "Activities" page and select "All"

This will select every activity in your account.

Click the "Edit" button at the top of the "Activities" page

If you don't see the "Edit" button, click the "..." button at the far-right and select "Edit" from the list.

NOTE: If the "Edit" button is greyed out, it means that a "Competition" activity type has been selected, which cannot be edited in this manner. Look through your activities and de-select any "Competition" activities before clicking "Edit".

On the "Bulk edit" menu check the box for "Who Can Respond" and select "Only registered participants"

Click "Apply to ..." to save the change to all of your activities.
