Can I See Student Responses without Displaying them on the Projector?


Yes! Open the private Teacher Dashboard (a Premium feature) on your own computer screen or a separate device to see student responses and names privately. Responses always appear in the Dashboard, even if you aren't showing responses on the Projector. You can also use the Dashboard View to show all, or highlight and hide individual responses on the Projector View. In this article, we show you how to...

  • Hide all responses from the Projector
