You can also get tips and ideas about when to use Elucidat’s polling feature in this support article.

To use the ‘Polls’ feature

Create a Project with a scored Questionnaire or ‘Survey’ page, click here if you’re not sure how to set a page to be scored.

Next, open the page which you would like the ‘Graph’ to be displayed on (this needs to be a different page to the scored page which you are reporting from).

Double click a text field.

Click the ‘Graphs’ button in the text editor:

The ‘Insert Graphs’ pop up will appear:

Choose the page that you would like to send a score from using the ‘Page to graph results from’ dropdown.

Choose the ‘Graph type’ you would like.

Press ‘Insert’.

Now when you release your course your graph will appear and your Learner will be able to see information on how their peers answered.

Graphed Results

This page will show the results of a ‘Survey’ page in your Project, this is an excellent way to illustrate to your learners how their peers have interacted with the course.

To edit this Page type

Add a ‘Survey’ page to your Project:

Add answers to your ‘Survey’.

…set your ‘Survey’ page to be scored by pressing ‘Page settings’, clicking ‘Scoring & completion’ and then ‘This page is completed by’ to ‘User submitting a SCORE’.

Now add your Graphed Results page, click the edit button for the chart:

…click the ‘Graph’ icon:

…choose the page that you would like to take results from from the ‘Page’ dropdown:

…and choose the ‘Graph type’ you would like from this dropdown:

…now when you view your course as a finished Release you will see your graph results.

If you wish to change the colours that are used in your Graph, you can do so by accessing your Style, choosing 'Advanced options' and selecting 'Graphs'.

💡 Pro Tip! Your graph will only display results in your final release. Until you make a release ‘Preview’ will display placeholder values, your graph will update with the latest values every 10 minutes.

Polls will reflect the options chosen by all learners who have attempted the course.

Please note that if you Re-Release your content your Graph data will refresh.

This feature is for use with the ‘Online (Public)/(Private) or ‘SCORM for Learning Management System’ Release modes.

Please note the Graphs feature is not available for use with Multiple Response questions.
