The use of Turning Point Staff / UU Advantages Responseware: The ‘App’ makes preparation easier, as we don't have to prepare participant lists No need to buy handsets (approx £25 each) Generally: Best used for informal, engaging class quizzes. Students ENJOY engaging in the quizzes. Provide staff with feedback.
The use of Turning Point Staff / UU Disadvantages Responseware: Reliant on the students entering the correct data Reliant on the room having adequate wi-fi signal. Requires a license / registration (£7per student) Generally: Not suitable for proper tests - difficult to invigilate in tight / compact classrooms. Preparation of quizzes (technically easy – but time taken thinking)
Moving forward Examine why uptake in of the App was low Identify Wi-Fi hotspots Further comparison of the overall satisfaction with App and handset. Benefit between different year groups
