Rutgers Physics Student Response System

Pedagogical Uses of the SRS

Use Made of the System

The system has been stable since the beginning of term in January, 1996. We currently have information on its use only in Spring, 1996, but we will shortly have information on this academic year as well.

Student Evaluations:

The students in Physics 116 were given a questionaire at the end of March, in the tenth week of the term. They had been using the system in anonymous mode all academic year. Here are the results.

Two questions about the SRS were added to the student evaluation forms in the second year engineering course, fall 1996. Here are the results.

Discussion among Users

A discussion meeting was called for April 4th, 1996 at 4:15 in the Physics Lecture Hall, for those using the system to describe how they use it and for a general discussion of its usefulness and potential.

Another meeting was held on December 13, 1996.
