Classroom Performance Systems (Clickers)

Clickers 

Berry College has chosen to standardize on eInstruction's Classroom Performance System (CPS).

eInstruction Clicker System consists of: hardware (receiver and clickers), software (free), and the eInstruction website.

Q: What are clickers?  

A: Classroom performance systems (CPS) or clickers are a classroom instruction tool that can improve student engagement and learning in the classroom.

Instructors can use clickers to:

  • Present questions throughout a lecture
  • Give students quizzes and tests
  • Start a discussion
  • Take attendance

At any time during or after the semester, instructors can generate a myriad reports.

For more information visit theclicker FAQ page.

Q: What do I need to do to use clickers in my class?  

A: Any faculty member who wants to use clickers in a class should inform the bookstore in advance so they can order enough clickers for the upcoming semester. ;

Students can use a clicker that they use in a previous class, buy a clicker from a student who used one in another class, or buy a new clicker from the bookstore. ;

A: Many students may be familiar with clickers, but some students may not. We recommend that you provide a brief introduction to clickers during the first class session. ;

Q: Do I need to change my syllabus?  

If you are using CPS in your course, we recommend that you put information in your syllabus to inform students that you are using clickers. You may want to include wording similar to the following in the course syllabus:

A classroom response system (aka clickers) will be used in _______ course. You are required to obtain a clicker for this course (just like a required text). Use of your clicker is part of the course participation requirement. Students may not use other students' clickers; doing so is a violation of academic integrity.;

You must purchase and register your clicker before the _____ class meeting, and bring your clicker to class on that day prepared to participate. For our class, you will register your clicker via (www.einstruction.com). The class key for registration is _______. 

Q: What about the classroom computer?  

A: Email CIT and let us know what classroom the class is in, and we will install the software on the classroom computer. If you plan on storing data on the classroom computer, please follow basic security practices.;
