Introduction

UQpoll is a UQ active learning tool that automatically collates student responses to a multiple choice question with five answer options (A to E). The results are displayed as a graph. Students submit their response using a web enabled device (PC, Mac, iPhone, iPad, Android device or other smart phones).

Note: All UQ staff can use UQpoll via the UQ Active Learn suite (tutors will need to login using their staff username and login).

UQpoll questions – Multiple Choice

Questions can be posed:

  • Verbally
  • Written on the whiteboard
  • In a PowerPoint presentation

Tip: Questions can be prepared before lectures or asked impromptu in response to students’ questions. Images and other graphics can also be included in questions.

Note: The question (stem) can be entered directly into UQpoll, however you will be unable to enter in the response options (A to E).
