Faculty Resources: Clickers
Clickers are sometimes referred to as classroom response systems or personal response systems. Clickers are easy-to-use and hand-held remote devices with buttons that students press to respond to questions posed by their instructors. Then the clicker software transmits the student responses to a receiver attached to the instructor computer. The instructor can then display a graphical distribution of the results or other different formats of result report on the classroom screen.
Clickers can be used to get immediate student feedback about their content comprehension or to collect personal information or opinions.
