A classroom Student Response System (SRS) is a technology that enables instructors to ask questions, gather student responses, display those responses in real-time, even grade them if necessary. A SRS allows instructors to verify student comprehension of course materials at any time during a class or lecture. Students use their own mobile device (laptop, tablet, or smartphone) or i>clicker remote to submit their response.
A Classroom Response System helps:
- Gauge prior student knowledge before covering new material
- Increase student engagement in the classroom
- Promote active learning
- Encourage student discussion
- Enhance student learning experience
- Evaluate effectiveness of teaching
