Creating a REEF Poll Assignment in Learning Suite

BYU Learning Suite is LTI compliant with REEF Polling services. REEF Polling is a dynamic tool that allows students to participate in in-class quizzes and polls. The following documentation assists instructors in creating a REEF Polling assignment. Creating a REEF polling assignment allows students to directly access REEF via a link in the Learning Suite assignment. Additionally, scores will be automatically transferred from REEF to BYU Grades. It is important to note that only one REEF Polling score will be passed back per student per course.  You should only make one REEF LTI assignment and adjust the point value of that assignment to match the total points for all REEF questions.  ​This is the only way REEF allows LTI interaction.  If you wish to have REEF scores distributed to multiple assignments you will need to export scores from REEF and import them into Learning Suite.
