Abstract

Audience response systems (ARS) provide new opportunities to engage students in active, whole-group instruction. By collecting individual responses and aggregating these data into group profiles, teachers can make informed decisions about student progress and adapt instruction accordingly. Unfortunately, most teachers lack the skills to develop assessments that are appropriate for the formats typically used with ARS and aligned to standards-based curriculum. This project involved the use of ARS to collect formative evaluation data in two secondary content areas: biology and geometry. The report highlights an assessment model that consists of 7 steps: planning, formative assessment, data reporting, reshaping, summative assessment, item analysis, and corrective instruction. The report also describes emerging staff development needs including presentation skills, test development, curriculum alignment, and data analysis.
