Definition

Clicker polling is a polling method typically used in large classrooms or conference halls where respondents use a special device called a clicker, or an app or website with similar functionality, to submit an option of choice from a specific list of options provided. Clicker polling may be used for multiple-choice questions, including survey multiple-choice questions, to gather rapid feedback.

Parameters

  • Anonymity at the individual level from the teacher
  • Anonymity at the individual level from fellow students
  • Whether the polling is open at the group level, i.e., whether the aggregate responses are made available
  • Whether the list of questions and individual or aggregate responses are archived in a form that the teacher and/or students can access later
