Clickers Give Students Instant Reports
Mrs. Teri Sanders uses clickers regularly in giving her students quizzes. Students answer on paper as a physical record of their responses as well, which gives an added level of confidence to this new practice. The instant feedback allows the students to discuss their answer choices with her as a whole-class review immediately following the quiz. All students are challenged to come up with answers to the questions rather than asking for verbal answers from only a few students. Once the students have made an answer choice they are invested in seeing: "Did I have that right?" The instant results provide feedback to the students prompting them to immediately correct their knowledge in this AP US History class, where students must have a great quantity of factual recall to be able to think though the material.
