iClicker Information

iClickers are a Student Response System (SRS) used to promote active learning in the classroom. Students respond to questions posed by the instructor using a small handheld keypad that looks like a TV remote control.

This allows the instructor to:

  • engage students through interactive question and answer sessions.
  • get individual responses from hundreds of students at once.
  • collect instant feedback from every one of his/her students.
  • instantly assess students' understanding of the subject matter.
  • survey a class and get instant data for analysis.

It allows students to:

  • participate actively in class.
  • volunteer answers and opinions in class without fear of intimidation or embarrassment.
  • get instant feedback on how well they are understanding the material early on, instead of having to wait until after a mid-term exam.
  • see how they are measuring up to the rest of the class.

Student Response System software:

  • polls students.
  • tabulates the student responses.
  • displays the results back to the class in graphical form.
