iResponse PRO – Classroom Responder System
iResponsePRO UserGuide v1.0.0 (update)
iResponse PRO Classroom Responder System contains all the features of the iResponse (standard version) but now includes the ability to distribute a complete test(s) to devices connected to the class session via Wi-Fi. The distributed test(s) may be completed during the session or as a take home assignment, with an instructor specified time limit if required.
The iResponse system provides education and training institutions with the ability to use the iPhone and iPod touch to transform their lectures into an interactive learning experience. This will help students increase their learning and retain knowledge.
The iResponse PRO system is comprised of two components:
- iResponse PRO Utility (downloaded by the Instructor)
- iResponse PRO iPhone/iPod Touch Application (downloaded by the student)
iResponse iPhone/iPod Touch Application
The iResponse PRO iPhone/iPod Touch Application component works in conjunction with the iResponse PRO Utility, and allows the students to respond to and participate in the question and answer session and to receive distributed test(s).
The iResponse PRO iPhone/iPod Touch Application is downloaded by the student and is required for all participants in the training session. By using this component, students are able to log-in to the question and answer session, respond to questions, start a test, review a test, submit a test, view their individual progress, and view the overall progress of class. The application enables the user to receive and display multiple choice, true/false, yes/no, and survey style questions transmitted by the iResponse PRO Utility.
The application enables the user to receive and display various styles of questions and tests transmitted by the iResponse Utility:
- Multiple Choice
The iResponse Classroom Responder App is currently under review by Apple and will be available soon.
Below are some sample screenshots.
iResponse PRO Utility
The iResponse PRO Utility component allows an instructor to test student comprehension at any point during the teaching session. The instructor may develop questions on their desktop computer (both Mac and PC versions are available), and transmit the questions or test(s) directly to the students’ iPhone/iPod touch devices. The instructor is also able to view who is connected to the system, who has responded to the question, and what response was given.
During testing, once the student has submitted the test, the instructor and student receive instant results on the their performance. The responses can then be displayed in a graph, either to the entire class or just the instructor. The utility will display the correct response and the number of students who answered the question correctly. In addition, the instructor may also view and save the results of the questions and answers by teaching session, individual student, or specific question.
Multiple redundancies are built into the iResponse PRO to ensure distributed tests can be retrieved either during the current session or during a later session.
The iResponse Utility is comprised of 4 screens:
- iResponse Connect Screen:
Used to create the class ID, session name, and view devices connected to the testing session.
- iResponse Questions Screen:
Used to create the list of questions and answers, select the question type, determine feedback status, and transmit the question and answer to the connected devices.
- iResponse Answers Screen:
Used to view the respondents answers in a bar graph format, with an option to highlight the correct answers.
- iResponse Statistics:
Enables the user to view the analytical data of the session, including class performance and student performance that may be further sorted by question or individual. This data may be saved/exported in an xml format.
