Note: You are currently viewing documentation for Moodle 3.3. Up-to-date documentation for the latest stable version of Moodle is probably available here: Poll block.

General

This block allows you to create custom polls for use in a Moodle course.

  • It doesn't use choice code, the block is designed to be addable anywhere in moodle, including mymoodle, something the Choice module can't do.

It is quite easy to use this poll

  • Just go inside the course you want (or the site front page)
  • Turn editing on
  • Inside the 'Add a block' block, choose 'Poll'
  • Configure the poll block settings
  • Enjoy :)

Using this block in the Main Page by someone who is not a teacher

  • If you want to provide a particular student with permissions to modify the poll; and created a new roll called "Poll Manager" which can be applied to a block (but is based on the normal student roll), which has special permission to edit a block, and update the poll block. It seems to work ok (allowing the student to view responses and setup new poll), except that when they create a new poll it comes up with an error:
error/You must be a teacher to perform this action

If anyone else is interested, you can get around this issue ("error/You must be a teacher to perform this action") by creating it as a System role and assigning it on the Front Page to the person I wanted to be able to manage polls.
