iClicker in Action: Examples of How Instructors Use iClicker
Dive into examples of how real instructors use iClicker’s features to enrich active learning and promote student understanding during class time.
Gauge student comprehension by asking questions on-the-fly using whatever materials you use to teach—such as images, web browsers, and videos—with no prep work required.
Tired of lecturing all class? Encourage collaborative discussions by assigning students into groups to discuss questions and reach a consensus. The best part is–iClicker does the assigning and facilitating for you!
Kickstart your class with a quiz that assesses students’ understanding of assigned readings or homework, all done at their own pace.
Make learning fun by turning polling questions into an interactive game, like Jeopardy (creative ways instructors can gamify iClicker). Or launch an exit poll at the end of class to gather feedback and identify areas where students may need more support.
When tackling challenging topics, ask students to anonymously rate their confidence in their answers. This helps ensure that every student is confident before moving forward, preventing anyone from falling behind.
Send reminders to students if they navigate away from the iClicker app during class. Review post-class reports to proactively address patterns.
Auto-run attendance throughout your class term to encourage accountability and regular class attendance–use geolocation for in-person classes or conduct online check-ins for remote students.
Run a poll and watch results populate in real-time. Gain immediate insights into students’ comprehension levels and address any misconceptions or areas of struggle on the spot.

Pre/Post Class Assignments
Prepare students for class by setting homework assignments, or assess their understanding with post-class assignment questions. Pre and post-class assignments can help you and your students identify learning gaps.
Post-class Exit Polls
Give students a chance to reflect on the day’s lesson and collect their feedback in a post-class exit poll. It could be as simple as asking, “Did you enjoy the lesson?” to gain insight into what your students are thinking.
Insights and Analytics
Use an instructor dashboard to analyze class and individual data, including attendance, participation, attentiveness, and performance. Easily spot areas of struggle and shift lesson plans based on class performance.
Say goodbye to manually uploading questions or creating study guides! Students can generate study materials like flashcards or practice tests from class polling questions, which are automatically available to them after class.
Set up auto-run for attendance at the start of the semester to run throughout your course term and gain insight on attendance trends. Review attendance after class to spot trends in absences and address it early on.
Over 7,000 Instructors are Using iClicker to Engage 1.3 million+ Students
Here’s why iClicker is the most widely used student response system in higher education.
“Compared to another solution our institution made us use, iClicker is far better designed for me. It saved me considerable time and effort vs. the other solution in setup, use, and integration with my LMS gradebook. I can ask questions on the fly too. It just works best for how I teach!”
—Intro Physics Course Coordinator & Instructor
“Based on the class evaluation provided by the students, they liked the iClicker polling and the feasibility of the attendance system.”
—Psychology Instructor, University of Hawaii
"I really love the real-time feedback about how well students are grasping material as I deliver it, especially in a class with hundreds of students."
—Kari Loomis, University of Massachusetts - Amherst
“It helps to engage students, it makes them more likely to attend class, it allows for anonymous responses, the different types of responses, and students pay attention more. The screengrab of questions helps students study for the tests. Student evaluations include several comments every semester about how much they like the clicker questions.”
—Jamie Spinney, Southern Utah University, Geography
“In eight years here and multiple campus-wide software launches, I have never had a software deploy so smoothly, faculty grasp usage so easily, or have whatever problems appear to be so easy to resolve.”
—Kathy Roberts, Center for Teaching and Learning, University of North Texas
