In addition to resetting multiple-choice questions, unposting open-ended responses, and adding comments to open-ended responses and writing template prompts, you can pin response boards to provide examples of excellent work to all your students.

The pinned response will appear at the top of the list that students see after they submit their own answer. Plus, students with pinned responses receive a notification letting them know you’ve spotlighted their work!

How to pin responses

1. Go to Analytics and select a page

First, access Analytics. Then click on the blue box corresponding to a page that has a response board.
