Cynthia , join us on Thursday, October 18 as Dr. Craig Leonard Brians of Virginia Tech discusses the advantages of regularly using clickers in class. Dr. Brians theorized that students benefit from using this tool because clicker quiz questions connect each day's material to exams (and thus to students' grades), and clicker quiz questions may improve student attendance and engagement. Examining these relationships within a large lecture class, he tested competing explanations using opinion surveys and behavioral data, finding that clickers may enhance students' performance through a number of mechanisms, including:
  • more consistent attendance
  • "on the fly" formative assessment of knowledge
  • identification of high-priority course content
  • increased classroom participation and attention

Dr. Brians is the Associate Director for Program Research and an Associate Professor in the Department of Political Science at Virginia Tech.
