A Strategic Assessment of Audience Response Systems Used in Higher Education
Kay, Robin H.; LeSage, Ann
Australasian Journal of Educational Technology, v25 n2 p235-249 2009
An audience response system (ARS) permits students to respond to multiple choice questions using a remote control device. All responses are instantly displayed, usually in chart form, and subsequently reviewed and discussed by the instructor and the class. This paper offers a comprehensive review of teaching strategies used with ARS and includes a discussion of general, motivational, assessment based, and learning based approaches. Several promising strategies have been identified, particularly collecting formative assessment feedback and peer based instruction. More systematic, detailed research in a broader range of contexts is recommended. (Contains 1 table.)
