Student Behavior, Attitudes, and Learning Using in-Class Questions with "Clickers" vs. a Show of Hands in a Large Introductory Geology Course

Andrea Bair, Jennifer Stempien, and David Budd, University of Colorado Geological Sciences (CU-SEI program), GSA conference poster, 2007.
Reports an investigation of student behavior, attitudes, and learning in two sections of introductory geology in which most course elements were the same (instructor, classroom, lecture content, assessments, and in-class questions); one section used clickers to vote, and students voted via a show of hands in the other section. The effects of each treatment on student behavior, attitudes, and learning were evaluated by means of classroom observations, student surveys, and student interviews.
