Assessment & Polling

Audience Response Systems

Poll Everywhere is used in the MD curriculum and allows for students to respond to questions via app, website, or text message. A faculty tutorial is available on the Himmelfarb Library website.

Faculty designing questions for in-class audience responses may find Derek Bruff's Classroom Response Systems website useful. 


MD students take in-house exams on their iPads, using the ExamSoft app Examplify. Faculty and students should use the GW University account to log in to ExamSoft.


Additionally, we utilize Qualtrics for polling functions that do not involve high-stakes, secure examinations.
