During Polling

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
