Using classroom response systems or online polling


Polling tools have stretched far beyond their original function of carrying out surveys and reporting results.

Anyone who bought goods or services online will have encountered them; they underpin user satisfaction reporting across the board in the burgeoning online retail market, from holidays to groceries.

This module looks at how to apply them to learning and assessment.


Online polling and classroom response systems


After completing this module you will:

• use online polling and class response systems to improve your teaching and assessment practice
• design polling and response activities using different feedback options to improve learner engagement

Digital Teaching Professional Framework

This module covers the DTPF component - E1a : Assessment and feedback with peer feedback illustrations

  • Use digital assessment tools to monitor the learning process and obtain information on learners' progress.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative assessment strategies, e.g. using classroom response systems, quizzes, games.
  • Use digital technologies to enhance formative and summative assessment in tests, e.g. through computer-based tests, implementing audio or video (e.g. in language learning), using simulations or subject-specific digital technologies as test environments.
  • Use digital technologies to scaffold learners' assignments and their assessment, e.g. through ePortfolios.
  • Use a variety of digital and non-digital assessment formats and be aware of their benefits and drawbacks.
  • Critically reflect on the appropriateness of digital assessment approaches and adapt strategies accordingly.
