The Student Feedback Tool can be used to gather real-time feedback from students by running a poll.  This can be used to (for example) find out if students are understanding the lesson, or do a quick check on the wellbeing of the class.

Within Vivi Central, you can:

  • Review and manage the results of previous student polls,
  • Manage the library of emojis that can be used within a student poll, and
  • Create and manage student poll templates that can be easily accessed via the Vivi App.

Enabling the Student Feedback Tool

The Student Feedback Tool needs to be enabled in the organization “Features” page

Once enabled, a “Feedback” link will appear in the left menu within Vivi Central, and a “Feedback” button will appear in the Vivi App, as shown below.

More than one notification rule can be created for each poll template. 

Please note that the notification rules collate results based on a single answer in the poll template.  This includes all of the results for all of the times that the poll is run within the selected timeframe.

If more than one notification rule on a poll template is triggered, this would result in multiple emails being sent to the nominated email addresses.

A summary of the rules can be found on the “Notification Rules” screen for each poll template.
