Named Mode

It is possible to assign names to the devices from a class list or User Database, so that student names correspond to the ActiVotes or ActivExpressions during a voting session.

NB: If you have not already created a class, search the Help files for Assigning Students to Devices.

Click Assign students to devices to begin.

Anonymous Mode

Click Toggle anonymous voting when you would prefer students to remain anonymous.

Instead of student or device names, this option will randomly assign a number to each student.

This number does not relate to the order in which the devices were registered.

Disable Anonymous Mode by clicking the same icon.

The numbers will be displayed in the Voting Browser and during a voting session.
