High security votingRun low security or high security polls. Low security polls, which anyone can vote in simply by starting at the correct web address, are often used at parent teacher meetings. High security means you know exactly who votes, only authorized people vote and there is no risk from repeat voting because each person has a unique voting account which is a sign-in name and password. Four options are available for creating and issuing the voting accounts.
Integrated bulk email managerSchool Poll includes a fully functioning bulk email manager integrated into the survey and polling technology. You can use the email system to send people emails with automatic sign-in links to your polls. This means you can use high security polls yet people do not need to remember or even know their sign-in details just click and vote.
Interactive Opinion Market polls engage studentsUnleashed in full power School Poll works like a free floating Opinion Market harvesting and ranking opinions live and continuously from the school community. Opinion Markets are interactive organic style polls which work without pre-structured questions or surveys. Very exciting for students.
All students admitted to an Opinion Market forum can submit opinions relevant to the poll topic and vote for their preferred opinions any time. All opinions float in a leaderboard and are ranked live by votes. Opinion Markets encourage participation, expression, creativity and tolerance. Opinion Markets are a special invention of www.BigPulse.com, the company behind School Poll.
This screenshot illustrates an Opinion Market poll. In this case students from Great Yarmouth VA High are submitting and voting opinions on the new lunch menu. See more about Opinion Markets.
Online electionsRun student elections online with ease. You have no paper, no manual vote counting and you know exactly who voted. There is no risk from repeat voting. People can vote from anywhere. The result is immediate. More about online elections.
Transparency optionsThe votes are counted live but you can hide the vote counts from voters until you are ready to announce. Votes can be anonymous which means no one can see how each person votes. Alternately, you can use transparent voting which means you or everyone if you wish, can see how each person votes.
Discussion boardsA separate discussion or debating forum can also be opened automatically for each opinion or candidate as it is submitted. Alternately a single discussion board can be opened for each poll or question in a survey.
Forum moderationAll opinion and discussion board postings can be approved by your nominated poll moderators.
Reports and analysisYou can download tables with vote results for any of your polls any time. See example. You can also download the raw data from your vote harvests in a simple text file which can be easily imported into spreadsheets.
Vote filtersYour polls can include vote filters which show votes from tailored categories such as student, student grouping or parent.
Multi-user site licenceYou can nominate people to be part of your support team. These people have access to your online poll manager webpage and appear in a support team list accessed from your poll manager webpage. You can add and remove people from this support team list with a click. You can also tailor the access level allowed for each support person.
Poll, survey menuEach poll, survey or questionnaire can appear in a poll menu page linked to your school website. As new surveys or survey questions are opened they are immediately visible from your school poll menu without the need for you to add new links to your website. We can also create a special web address (URL) linked directly to your poll or survey menu. See example Poll Menu.
