Abstract: The use of personal response devices (or “clickers”) in the classroom is becoming more frequent. Quantitative results have been used to assess clicker effectiveness in both general and physical chemistry. Changes in classroom engagement were investigated in the general chemistry classes. In one term, the clicker use was optional, while in the other term, clicker use was tied to a participation grade. In all classes, exam grades for students who consistently used clickers were higher than those for students who didn’t. Information retention was tested with a comparison of student performance on clicker questions and related exam questions. In some cases, a clicker question was used as an exam question. In most cases, student performance improved on the exams relative to the in-class performance (as recorded with clickers).
