Please note that this feature requires identifying the participants, which can only be done for those participating through the web. Participants can't take part in the competition using SMS text.
The competition mode is a fun and entertaining way to learn by introducing gamification into the classroom.
How does it work?
- Step 1: Open the settings
and turn on the Competition Mode
- Step 2: The audience connect
To identify respondents, they will be asked to fill in a username when connecting to your event.
You can also turn on the "Authentication" in the settings before starting your event. This will require participants to identify themselves using email, social media, or SSO login when connecting to your event.
- Step 3: Ask the audience questions and display the ranking
When quizzing the audience, click on the little trophy at the bottom of your screen to display the current ranking, and choose whether you'd like to display the top 3, top 5, top 10, or top 20 participants.
How is the competition scored?
To avoid giving participants with a faster phone or connection an advantage, we do not take response times into account.
For most question types, scoring is quite straightforward: there are as many points to win as there are correct answers.
- Find on image: 1 point (as of this writing, you can only select one correct area);
- Find a number: 1 point (as of this writing, you can only determine one correct answer);
- Sorting: 1 point;
- Open question/Word cloud: 1 point per correct answer (click here to find out how to add multiple correct answers);
- Matching: 1 point per match;
- Fill in the blanks: 1 point per blank.
For Multiple choice questions, we apply specific rules.
MCQ with 1 correct answer
A MCQ with one correct answer counts for 1 point.
MCQ with multiple correct answers
For MCQs with multiple correct answers, participants receive:
- 1 point for every correct answer they select;
- 1 point for every wrong answer they do not select;
- 0 points in any other case.
Therefore, a MCQ with 5 possible answers and multiple correct answers holds 5 points for participants to win.
