To create new Questions and Sets, sign in to the Plickers website at www.plickers.com.
Creating a Question
From your Library, Pack, or Folder, click the three-dot icon at the top-right and choose New Question from the drop-down menu. This will open the Question Editor, where you can build your Question. Newly-created Questions and Sets are automatically saved in the same Pack or Folder you had open when you created them.
Creating a Set
Click the New Set button at the top of your Library, Pack, or Folder. This will open the Set Editor where you can add Questions and build your Set.
To combine a group of independent Questions into a Set, select the Questions (Tip: hold down the Ctrl or Shift key to select multiple items), then right-click on the selection and choose New Set from Selection from the drop-down menu. This new Set will be automatically saved in the Pack or Folder you have open as “New Set from Selection”.
Editing a Question
Double-click a Question to open the Question Editor. From this view, you can set the text of your Question and its Answer Choices, add an image, set the correct answer, and more.
Click into the large text box to edit the text of your Question, and click the Answer Choice text boxes to edit the choices. Insert an image from your computer by clicking the image icon next to the top-right of the question. If you have Plickers Pro, you can also use the built-in image search to find an image from the web. Change the layout of your Question by choosing one of the layout options at the top-left of the page.
Plickers supports asking Graded Questions as well as Survey Questions. Use the Graded option when the Question has a correct answer; use Survey if there is no right or wrong answer (for example, if you’d like to use the Question to take a poll or get student feedback).
To set the correct answer, click on the corresponding letter – A, B, C, or D. You can also use the keyboard shortcut Shift+Enter to mark an answer correct. See Keyboard Shortcuts for a full list.
Click the Shuffle Choices button to have Plickers randomize the order of the answers for you. To remove an answer choice, hover over the answer line you’d like to remove and click the X to the right. If you would like to add an answer choice, click the Add Choice button at the top. Plickers supports a maximum of four choices. Remember to remove any choices you’re not using – this will prevent saving invalid responses when scanning.
At the top of the Question Editor, you will see a toolbar with a series of buttons. Click Convert to Set to create a new Set with the Question you’re editing, or use Copy to Clipboard to enable pasting the Question into an existing Set.
To quickly create another Question alongside the current one, click the Create New button. You can create as many questions as you want. Click the 3-dot icon at the far right end of the toolbar to see a drop-down menu with additional options.
Editing a Set
The Set Editor allows you to edit both the list of Questions in your Set and the contents of each Question.
To add new Questions to your Set, click the + button at the top-left of your screen. New blank-slate Questions will be automatically added to the end of your Set. From the left-hand column, drag and drop your Questions to reorder them within the Set. Right-click on any Question in the left-hand column to duplicate or delete it.
If you would like to print out the Set and use it as a handout or study guide, use the Print Handout button at the top-right of your screen. There, you will be given setup and printing options to customize the document in a way that works best for your class.
Click the three-dot icon at the top-right of the Set Editor to duplicate the entire Set, move the Set to a Pack, or send the Set to Trash. Duplicated Sets will be automatically saved in your Library, and items sent to the Trash are still retrievable, so don’t panic if you inadvertently Trash an item!
