Poll Everywhere is a free, online polling application (a.k.a. audience response system) that allows you to quickly gauge student understanding using their computers, tablets, or cell phones.  The Poll Everywhere educational license purchased by CofC now allows faculty to give quizzes and polls that are not anonymous.  It allows you to give polls that are associated with your students’ names and that can generate a score if desired.
