Polls on SPIDER allow you to quickly add a single multiple choice poll to a class home page or on the main cluster home page. Polls are anonymous but each user can only vote once.
Polls can be targeted at different classes, years and clusters to allow for control over who can view and respond to the poll. These targets are determined by your cluster and your level of access. Class reps and class editors are only able to target their own class with a poll. Admin level users can target any class and also create polls on their cluster home page, which they can limit to one or more years.
Add a poll
class rep & class editors
- Go to the class home page
- click on the Tools tab
- click on the 'Polls' link
- click the 'Add' link
Admins can either go to the class tool as above, or use the links in the 'communication' section of the admin tools
from this point, adding polls is the same for all users.
- enter the text for the question in your poll in the 'Poll Question' box
- type the choices for the poll in each numbered box. You can have up to 10 options
- select the closing date for your poll
- click [add] and your poll will be saved
While a poll is live, the current running totals for each choice in the poll will be shown on the class or cluster home page:
When a poll is closed, the results are visible from the 'completed polls' link on the SPIDER home page under the polls section. The completed polls page allows you to filter the poll results by cluster, year, class and date to restrict which poll results are shown.
