Clickers for engagement in the large undergraduate statistics classroom: do clickers improve final grades?


Krista Wilde (Canada)


With the increase in the number of undergraduate students, the ability to actively engage all students in a large classroom is challenging. The use of student response systems or Clickers is a relatively new technology that allows the students in a large classroom to select individual responses to questions posed to them during class, thereby increasing classroom engagement. In this study, students in a large undergraduate statistics class were separated into two groups: those that used Clickers and those that did not use Clickers. Analysis revealed that there was no difference in the final grades between the students who used Clickers and the students who did not use them.
