The Classroom Performance Systems offered by Pearson, LLC, allows for the use of “classroom clickers” by teachers interested in raising the level of communication within the course. These clickers can be used from 2nd or 3rd grade through graduate education. Uses include questioning students with multiple choice or true/false inquiries, taking polls in class, or many other ways.

The instructor can use the “clickers” when starting a lecture to gauge knowledge or as a formative assessment tool to check understanding and extent of learning from a unit of study.

The Pearson Classroom Performance Systems offer “ExamView” or a question generator software system that can provide instructors with hundreds of questions for a chapter or unit of a textbook. These are valuable questions that upload quickly and easily to the software system used with the “clicker” technology.

Together these two advancements in education, the “clickers” and the questions from “ExamView” combine to create powerful and meaning interaction with students in the 21st century classroom.
