Response system

Overview Title
A Student Response System (SRS) is technology that enables instructors to ask questions, gather student responses, display those responses in real-time, even grade them if necessary. A SRS allows instructors to verify student comprehension of course materials at any time during a class or lecture. Students use their own mobile device (laptop, tablet, or smartphone) to submit their response.

Cost 
REEF Polling also works with hand-held remote devices (a.k.a. clickers). REEF Polling is cost free to UTEP faculty and students, but the hand-held remote devices must be purchased separately. If you are an instructor who prefers to use the hand-held remote devices, please contact the UTEP Bookstore to order the clickers for your students ahead of time. Your students can then purchase them from the UTEP Bookstore.

NOTE: Students using hand-held remote devices will not be able to participate in target questions or short answer questions.
