Analysing data from a class taught with clickers
AbstractDuring the fall 2005 the author taught a large introductory Statistics class at the University of Connecticut with the aid of a student personal response system (also known as “clickers”). Apart from its pedagogical value, the system has the secondary advantage of building vast day to day data on students’ performance. This article presents an analysis of the data gathered from the course, together with conclusions and suggestions on how to collect and organize data for further educational studies.
