You can display the results chart during a poll or after you stop accepting votes. There are several options for viewing the results. You can view multiple charts to compare results to another question. Other options let you set the correct answer, change the chart view, and move from question to question.

The Results Chart

Use the controls in the Results Chart window to:

A - Move to the results for the next or previous question
B - Move to the results for a specific question
C - Select the correct answer (or choose the corresponding letter choice or bar)
D - Display a second chart window to compare question results
E - Set the number of significant digits -- 1-8 for numeric response questions or 1-16 for short answer
F - Set the graph type (bar chart-vertical or bar chart-horizontal)

If you're using your instructor remote, press the B button on the instructor remote to show/hide the results chart. Press the E button on your remote to cycle through the choices to designate a correct answer.

Numeric Response

For numeric results charts, the results appear on a vertical bar chart in numeric order (default) or a histogram. Choose Answer to select one or more correct responses. Select Characters to set the number of significant figures, or characters, to show in the chart.

Short Answer

Short answer (alphanumeric) results charts can only be viewed as a vertical bar chart. To view more results, drag the scroll bar down. Select the Characters menu to change the number of characters that appear on the chart.

Changing the number of characters is particularly useful for ranking and grouping responses. For example, three students provide the following answers to a ranking question: ABCDEABEDCBCEDA. With five or more significant characters selected, each of these answers appears separately in the bar chart. By changing the significant characters to one, you can group the students by their first choice. In this example, changing the significant characters to one displays two bars on the chart.
