A simple attendance register or course agreement

A choice with only one option may serve as an attendance record 'I am present' or a course contract 'I have read and understood the conditions'

Project/Group sign up

Students may be presented with a selection of future projects and they can select one. This could also work to as a group selector, although Choice itself will not put them into a group. There is a contributed module Choicegroup

Elections

Teachers can even make choices for students who don't respond, as shown in the screencast Choice responses by teachers.
