Classroom Response Systems Overview
A Classroom Response System (CRP) is a technology for electronically collecting and analyzing student responses to questions posed in the classroom, in real time.
Instructors can use the various classroom response systems to take attendance in their classrooms. Asking students a simple question like, “Are you here today?”
Instructors can use CRPs to pose a question(s) as the class is getting ready to begin. Answers and results can be shown in real time. Instructors can then discuss the results with the class and have students provide feedback on why they chose a particular answer.
