Entry 34: Using The Clickers

Today I worked with one of the science teachers and administered a pre-test using the clickers. She had a total of 112 students who took the test with the clickers. We made this easy and just did a fast lesson which means that instead of putting in the question, we just put in the answer. The students then had a paper copy of the test sitting in front of them and they just keyed in the answers on the clicker. We even had each student showing up on the computer, so we could see which questions they got right and wrong. We did this in case anyone didn't understand how to use the clicker, we could see and go over and help. It worked well and it is a whole lot easier than grading 112 tests. I will blog about the results when we look at them.
