Professor of Chemistry David Perry from the University of Akron wanted to employ research-proven active learning theories in his classes with the help of daily, formative assessments. Further, he wanted a more efficient way of administering high-stakes exams that would allow him the flexibility of using various question types to assess student understanding.
The challenge was that his Principles of Chemistry II class enrolls between 100 and 200 students. Without even a teaching assistant to help, and with only bubble sheets available to him, administering daily quizzes would be a cumbersome process at best. The bubble sheets also limited him to multiple-choice questions for student assessments.
TurningPoint’s Self-Paced Polling environment turned out to be just the solution he needed.
