Educators in a variety of disciplines have used clicker technology to engage college students in the learning process. This study investigated the influence of clicker technology on student recall and student involvement in higher education. Student Involvement Theory was used to inform and guide this research. Student recall was evaluated using three experimental conditions (1) verbal review (review without PowerPoint slide or clicker technology), (2) slide review (review with a PowerPoint slide and verbal review), and (3) clicker review (review with a PowerPoint slide, verbal review, and clicker technology). Also, student surveys were used to identify perceptions of involvement. Some evidence of improvement in student recall was identified with clicker technology review when compared to PowerPoint slides combined with verbal review. Student surveys indicated that students preferred clicker technology over the other conditions. Students also perceived benefits of clicker technology at a classroom level and on an individual engagement level. (Contains 1 table and 1 figure.)
