THE USE OF IMMEDIATE RESPONSE SYSTEMS IN JUNIOR COLLEGE.
BOARDMAN, DORRIS E.
IMMEDIATE RESPONSE SYSTEMS MAY BE AN EFFECTIVE MEANS OF INDIVIDUALIZING INSTRUCTION AND OF HELPING THE INSTRUCTOR TO EVALUATE THE PROGRESS OF HIS STUDENTS. SUCH A SYSTEM PROVIDES FOR CONTINUOUS ACTIVE RESPONSE, THE IMMEDIATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE RESULTS OF A RESPONSE, AND THE POSSIBILITY OF CORRECTING ERRONEOUS RESPONSES BEFORE PROCEEDING. THE BASIC EQUIPMENT IS A SET OF INDIVIDUAL STUDENT RESPONDERS AND A TEACHER'S CONSOLE ON WHICH THE RESPONSE OF EACH STUDENT IS INDICATED. SYSTEMS MAY ALSO INCLUDE MEANS OF ANALYZING THE NUMBERS OF CORRECT RESPONSES IN A CLASS, PROVIDING PRINTOUTS OF INDIVIDUAL OR GROUP RECORDS, AND CHANGING OF STUDENT ANSWERS (THOUGH RECORDING ONLY THE INITIAL RESPONSE) IN ORDER TO PROVIDE ADEQUATE FEEDBACK. OTHER DESIRABLE FEATURES ARE (1) PRIVACY, SO THAT ONE STUDENT'S RESPONSE CANNOT BE OBSERVED BY ANOTHER, (2) PROVISION FOR WEIGHTING OF QUESTIONS, (3) SIMPLICITY OF OPERATION, AND (4) ADAPTABILITY TO ADDITION OF MORE SOPHISTICATED UNITS. SEVERAL TYPES OF INSTALLATION ARE DESCRIBED AND ILLUSTRATED. (WO)
