University of Kansas Personal Response Systems Phil Baringer Physics and Astronomy May 10, 2005 Center for Science Education Seminar Series

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 2 Personal Response System Components Hardware Transmitters Receivers Software Data Collection Analysis

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 3 Data Collection Example Which of these letters is your favorite? a) b) c) d) e)

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 4 Available System Examples HiTT (What we’re using today) PRS E-instruction (coming soon to Budig) see Susan Zvacek of Instuctional Development and Support

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 5 Modes of Operation Low stakes discussion questions High stakes Quizzes Single or multi-question

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 6 Analysis of Information Graph of percentage of students giving each response Student-by-student record of responses (need to set up roster)

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 7 How Does a PRS Help You? Easy way to take attendance Draw more students to class Instant gauge of student understanding of a topic (for you and the student) Easy way to put active learning into a lecture setting

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 8 Uses of PRS Questions in Lecture Start students thinking about a topic Did the students get this from the reading? Did the students get this from what I just said?

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 9 Physics Lesson Example Angular Momentum I =momentum-of-inertia, has to do with how the mass is distributed about the rotation axis ω=angular velocity, how fast you are spinning

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 10 PRS Question If everyone moved to Antarctica, would the length of the day change? a) Yes, it would get a little shorter b) Yes, it would get a little longer c) No, it would stay exactly the same

Center for Science Education, May 10, 2005 11 Acknowledgements Thanks to: Steve Shawl Center for Teaching Excellence Center for Science Education
