Getting Started with PollEverywhere

In order to use PollEverywhere, faculty must first create an account on the site:

  1. Go to
  2. Click the Sign Up button.
  3. Submit the sign up form including your Xavier email address where appropriate.

The above process will grant you a "free" account that allows for 40 responses per poll.

To start creating polls for your students:

  1. Login to using the credentials from the above process.
  2. Click the Create Poll button.
  3. Before creating the poll it is highly recommended you view the short demo video (which will be linked below the poll question field).
  4. Once you have created a new poll, a screen will display with two options for advertising it to students:
    • A number to which students can text results via cell phone,
    • Your personal URL, which students can access via web browser on computers or mobile devices.
For more in depth instructions on use of PollEverywhere, please consult their user guides.
