The Center for Instruction and Research Technology and the Campus Technology Committee conducted a review of clicker systems during the Spring 2014 semester. On April 14, 2014, the University Technology Committee endorsed the recommendation from the Campus Technology Committee to select Turning Technologies as the university’s next student response (clicker) system. Implementation will begin Fall 2014.
Classroom Response Systems, aka clickers, provide a tool to engage students and assess knowledge. Instructors are able to ask objective and subjective questions. Questions may come from the instructor or as part of a publisher’s textbook package. Questions are displayed for each student to view and respond to with a remote control device. A receiver picks up the student’s response and sends it to software loaded on a computer, providing instant feedback to instructor and student. These systems are also known as audience response systems, classroom performance systems, student response systems, or just clickers. Faculty will find directions for adopting the system here and may contact CIRT for more information.
