Clickers and Student Response Systems

About Clickers and Student Response Systems (SRS)

Student Response Systems (SRS or clickers) allow instructors to present questions to students and instantaneously collect and graphically display the responses from the class in order to assess student understanding or promote discussion.
There are many forms of student response systems, some of which are free and can be used with student's personal devices (ie: cell phone, tablet), and others which may be available to check-out from your college for class use.

TurningPoint Clicker Resources

TurningPoint Clickers
Several of the City Colleges have TurningPoint clickers for classroom use. These sets include the student clickers, a receiver, and the software (which runs off a flash drive; no need for installation!). Questions can be asked verbally or the instructor can embed questions into a Powerpoint presentation. This tool also works seamlessly with Publisher-created Clicker Powerpoints.
