The other day, the crimlaw prof who uses CPS as an assessment tool came to me asking how to use it to poll students.
I told him that basically, it’s the same, – just do not upload the session to the gradebook or to CPSOnline and do not indicate the correct answer.
Then he asked the “Yes” voters to indicate how strongly they felt about their opinion (1 being the highest):
Next he asked the “No” voters to indicate how strongly they felt about their opinion (1 being the highest):
The professor continued to poll the students to see whether gender or age made a difference in whether the law on euthanasia should be changed.
This was an interesting way to use “clickers” in the classroom and it definitely kept the students engaged.
