Importing a Course Roster

Importing a course roster is a way to help view responses to your polls in the reports section based on your course enrollment. If you do not want to track named student answers or participation for your polls, you do not need to import your course roster.

Log in to your Poll Everywhere account and select the "Participants" tab from the main dashboard.

Select "Add participant"

Select the "Add participant" button in the upper left hand corner.

Select "Connect to LMS"

From the pop up menu, select "Connect to LMS"

Select "Canvas"

Select the "Canvas" option from the list of support LMS's

Log in to Canvas

Under "Canvas accounts available for your institution" select "Login" next to 

Connect your Canvas and PollEverywhere accounts

When prompted, select "Authorize" to connect your Canvas and PollEverywhere accounts.

Select your Canvas login

You will now see a Canvas login available for you. Select the link that now appears under "Your available Canvas logins."

Select the course roster you want to import

You will see a list of your courses available in Canvas, with the most current courses listed first. Select the course you want to import and select "Continue." Please note that this will notify students via email who do not have an existing PollEverywhere account that one will be created for them. They will receive an email prompting them to complete their account creation.

Verify students have been added to your participant list

You will be notified that the LMS connection is in progress and your roster will appear in your participant list shortly.

In your participant tab of your PollEverywhere dashboard, you will now see the list of your students and which course group/s they belong to.
