    1. 1. Student Responders: Respond – Report - Review Lorrie Carlson Amy Caldwell Mimi Huffman
    2. 2. How they work  Set of Responders  Receiver plugs into USB port of computer  Software installed on computer 2Know Toolbar Acceltest
    3. 3. Why We Chose Renaissance Responders  Durability  Outstanding Support/Training  Multiple Input options Multiple Choice True/False Numeric Answer Short Answer Math Facts in a Flash Teacher led or Student led
    4. 4. Why Use Responders  Leads to discussion with students  Better class participation due to anonymity  Provides insight as to why students answered as they did  Teachers can instantly change instruction to meet the needs of the students
    5. 5. Why Use Responders  Instant feedback on student progress  More organized assessments of student progress  Measurable individual and whole class assessments for any type of lesson with ease
    6. 6. Ways to Use Responders  Informal Assessment – 2Know Toolbar Before and while you teach a topic to see what they know  Use Powerpoint  Pre-Test/quiz in digital or printed format  Questions from textbook  Oral questions To Vote or Take survey Pulse – Make sure students understand and are on track
    7. 7. Ways to Use Responders Use with Internet sites  BrainPop  Study Island  Many others - any interactive website that lends itself to multiple choice, True/False, Short Answer, etc.
    8. 8. Ways to Use Responders  Math Facts in a Flash  Students pick up responder, do Math Facts  Show teacher results on responder  Print out Results
    9. 9. Responders and Assessment  Formative Assessment Before teaching - to determine student knowledge base. Determines what needs to be taught. While teaching – to gauge student understanding. Allows teacher to review or reteach if necessary.
    10. 10. Responders and Assessment  Summative Assessments Immediate Feedback allows you to analyze responses to drive instruction
    11. 11. Responders and Assessment The real power is in the data you can collect using Acceltest
    12. 12. The power is in the data… Take a look at the research around formative assessment, though, and you'll start to wonder whether you can afford not to invest in student responders. When paired with developmentally appropriate learning goals, effective feedback ranks as the second most important school- level factor influencing student achievement, after a guaranteed and viable curriculum (Marzano, 2003).
    13. 13. The power is in the data… To be effective, however, feedback must be timely and connected to the content being learned in class—two criteria that student response systems meet. (Ferriter, 2009)
    14. 14. The power is in the data… Responders enable teachers to collect information about student mastery several times each class period and see results instantly. Teachers can quickly scan this information for patterns showing which students are—or aren't—"getting it" and make in-the-moment adjustments to teaching on the basis of something more than professional hunches. (Ferriter, 2009)
