Clickers are an interactive technology that enables instructors to pose questions to students and immediately collect and view the responses of the entire class. They are often used to give quizzes, take polls, open discussions, and take attendance.
Anywhere Polling allows you to poll over the top of any application such as a web page, PDF, streaming video, pre-created content, etc. Anywhere Polling also allows you to poll verbal, without previously setting up questions at any time during your presentation.
When creating a PowerPoint question to use with clickers, you need to open PowerPoint with the TurningPoint toolbar, unless you’ve installed the PC Install version of the clicker software and chosen the option to always open PowerPoint with the TurningPoint toolbar.
It might be necessary to edit their session files occasionally. When using the quick poll feature of Anywhere Polling you can edit your session data to include question and answer choices for reporting purposes, or you might need to adjust which answer is considered correct.
Instructors can use Anywhere Polling in TurningPoint to poll without using PowerPoint. You can either come up with a list of questions on the fly or prepare a Question List ahead of time. If you have your list of questions prepared the questions will appear when you open and close polling.
The Response Grid is an option that displays a chart of all students in the class. As the students answer, their name changes color if their registration is correct. If their clicker isn’t properly registered to their name, then just the device ID will appear.
