Experiments with a Computerized Response System: A Favorable Experience.
Garg, Devendra P.
In order to obtain student feedback in computer programing courses at Duke University, a computer-based anonymous audience response system was used. This system consisted of a minicomputer, voting consoles, and a large electronic display. Students set their voting consoles in response to the question and the minicomputer interrogated the consoles. The cumulative responses in each category were flashed on an electronic display board to provide immediate feedback. The objective of the project was to acquaint the students with a unique application of the computers. The system was well-received by the students and proved to be very effective as a feedback device in promoting free and open dialog. (Author/DS)
