How do I run a session?
Connect Base Station
Make sure you have connected your base station to the computer/podium you are using. Note: Some classroom podiums are equipped with a base station or you may request one in advance. Please contact Rutgers Digital Classroom Services for more information
Change Question Type
You can change the question type from the default Multiple Choice by opening the dropdown menu to the right of the question type. Besides multiple choice you may choose Numeric and Short Answer.
**NOTE: Keep in mind that if your participants are using physical response devices (clickers) they will not be able to answer a short answer question.
While you are polling you may want to show results in real time to your audience. With the graph displayed, you have the ability to designate the correct answers for the poll
Show poll results
During the poll you can display real time results to the entire class by clicking on the bar graph icon found inside the floating toolbar. As students enter their choices the bar graph will update
You may not want to display the graph during the poll to avoid influencing answers. You have the option of displaying the graph once you have stopped accepting responses
Selecting correct answers
While you are showing the poll results, you can click on the bar that corresponds to the correct answer. The bar will turn green while all other bars will turn red.
Designating the correct answer assigns a point to the corresponding student if you have enabled performance points. If you do not select a correct answer in the graph, you have the ability to select it later when viewing the session results
