If you are going to allocate scoring for your polls, show a leaderboard or include a quiz in your PowerPoint presentation, take the following into consideration:
- Ensure that you have selected the scoring option to identify a correct answer when setting up the polls. Without correct answers, there will be no scoring or leaderboards.
- Not all polls need to have correct answers if not desired.
- Vevox will allocate one point per poll when a participant has answered the poll correctly.
- If a multichoice poll was set up in such a way that the participant needs to choose more than one correct answer, the system will only allocate one point per poll if ALL the correct options were selected by the participant.
- When a participant fails to submit a response while the poll is open, no score will be allocated for that specific poll.
- Currently, we do not offer speed scoring.
- The Leaderboard slides can be placed throughout your presentation to display the results or alternatively the latest results so far from a quiz. You decide when and where to place them in your presentation.
Steps to set up a leaderboard slide:
Select the 'Add Analysis Slide' option from the PowerPoint ribbon.
From the pop-up box select the 'Leaderboard' analysis type. You will see a list of all the questions in your presentation that contain a correct answer, these are the questions that will be used to create the leaderboard scoring.
Press 'Add' to insert the leaderboard into a new slide.
When you run the leaderboard slide you will get a:
- List of the top participants with their positions and scores.
- How many participants are sharing a position (if applicable).
- The total number of participants taking part.
- And the average score of all your participants.
Participants will see the leaderboard display on the computer/big screen in PowerPoint as well as an individualized leaderboard display on their mobile devices.
This shows an example of a leaderboard in an anonymous session.
This shows an example of a leaderboard in an identified session with names.
Interpreting the leaderboard
In this example you have:
- 1 participant that is at position number one with a score of 10 out of 10. The runner-up scored 8 out of 10.
- In third position (sharing), you have 2 participants with a score of 4 out of 10 each. (As there are two participants sharing the third position, the next position is fifth place.)
- You had a total of 12 participants taking part in the quiz.
- The average score per participant was 3.4 correct answers out of 10 questions.
