  • Plickers Card Tips & Frequently Asked Questions

    Q: Can I use the same card set for multiple classes?

    A: Yes, you would simply use the same set (or print out multiples of the same set) of cards across the classes. Plickers will let you assign cards to students in each class, so you might have, for example, six #1 cards assigned to six different students. Since they're not in the same class period at the same time, the #1 card will only be read as one individual student -- the one associated with that particular class period the poll question is planned for.

    Q: How do you recommend printing these cards?

    A: To ensure that the Plickers app reads the cards quickly and easily, we'd recommend printing on white paper or cardstock. You can also laminate the cards to make them more durable, but try to avoid laminating the cards if you do not have a matte laminating option; the typical glossy lamination creates glare on the cards that can make them difficult for the app to read as quickly. Another way you can make your cards more durable is to have students paste them onto the inside cover of a notebook; this way they always have the cards for class (well, at least they should!) When doing so, you may want to encourage students to paste these in with a random orientation (not all with A at the top) so that when they're holding up their answers, they can still have anonymous answers.

    Q: Why does the standard set of cards feature smaller font for the letter answers? Why aren't the answers written on the back of the cards?

    A: We want you to have the most accurate data possible about what your students do and don't know, and we want your students to feel comfortable answering honestly. The small print of the answers and the unique shapes on each Plickers card help protect students' privacy so they can answer your questions honestly without worrying about what their peers think of their answer. If you still think your class would benefit from a larger print version, it's available above!
