To use iVote Create, you’ll need to register an account. This allows you to view exactly who has taken part, by listing the names of the voters and their selection. If you don’t need to know who voted, then you can avoid registration and just see the number of votes.
iVote is a very basic polling app so you can only create one question per survey. If you have multiple questions then these will need to be sent out individually. Alternatively, you could try an app like Survey Maker which has a seven question limit for free.
So how do pupils vote in your poll? The apps communicate with each other when they are both connected to the same Wi-Fi network. This confirms that they are to be included in your survey and will automatically be displayed on their screen. There are no passwords or codes to enter at all.
During a survey, the teacher gets live results as they come in from each iPad. When you close or cancel a survey, statistics are calculated and a pie chart is displayed, showing how every vote was cast.
The price seems a bit steep considering how basic the app is, but it does get the job done. Depending on the age group of your class, you might want to try Survey Maker. It has more features and allows for comments, multiple choice and ratings. We would only recommend iVote for very young learners.
