Benefits of Electronic Audience Response Systems on Student Participation, Learning, and Emotion
Stowell, Jeffrey R.; Nelson, Jason M.
Teaching of Psychology, v34 n4 p253-258 Dec 2007
We compared an electronic audience response system (clickers) to standard lecture, hand-raising, and response card methods of student feedback in simulated introductory psychology classes. After hearing the same 30-min psychology lecture, participants in the clicker group had the highest classroom participation, followed by the response card group, both of which were significantly higher than the hand-raising group. Participants in the clicker group also reported greater positive emotion during the lecture and were more likely to respond honestly to in-class review questions. (Contains 3 tables.)
