Student Response System; Engaging Students in the Classrooms

Clickers are technology that instructors can use in the classrooms to engage students, serve several purposes as student response systems, audience response systems, classroom response systems, and individual response systems. The clicker technology is a way to engage your students, gather data about their learning and conduct assessments in the classrooms.

Instructors use these systems to informally assess students' knowledge of a topic before lecturing, to see whether students understand a point after it has been explained, and to ask survey or opinion questions.
