2018 Student Response System Needs Assessment

Clickers are continuing to evolve, along with new ways of engaging students in and out of class.  We shared a survey to elicit feedback from faculty and students, between February 22nd - April 9th.  The results of this assessment will inform future learning technologies decisions for the entire university. Stay tuned for news in June!


2011 OSU Clicker Assessment Final Report


In 2010-2011 TAC conducted an assessment of clicker use at OSU.  This investigation involved more than 80 clicker-using instructors from across the curriculum, several hundred students in pilot courses, core instructional support units, OSU engineering, and peer institutions.  The overall consensus result of these diverse stake-holders is that OSU should transition from Qwizdom to Turning Technologies as the centrally supported response system (clickers).  Provided here is the final report of that assessment process.

Clicker Matrix

In the 2010-2011 clicker (response system) assessment TAC produced a feature matrix for comparison of the major response systems available.  This matrix was shared with clicker using instructors and with the clicker vendors in order to gather the most current, accurate, and relevant information.  The final matrix was shared with instructors  who participated in the Clicker Assessment Survey.
