does Beyond Question work?
Question is comprised of
wireless response devices that look and operate just like TV remote
controls. Pressing any button instantly communicates with the
teacher's computer. By using the intuitive user screens, a teacher
can develop a class survey, give a pop-quiz, or verify that students
understand the new material, with minimal effort. The basic process
of using Beyond Question is to:
a roster for each class by entering
the students' information or by importing it from an existing
file. Once the roster is created, you can record student's grades
a lesson for the class to compliment
the current subject matter. Whether using resources from textbook
publishers or using the built-in editor, lessons can be prepared
a lesson to the class
that introduces the subject matter, provides
a few examples or discussion, and then confirms the students'
understanding by asking a few questions.
student responses as they use
their remotes. Students that have answered will see their number
box turn green on the screen. Changes flash yellow, then back
the results graph to
provide immediate feedback to the class. Students build confidence
by knowing they answered correctly. Incorrect answers can be identified
the lesson/quiz summary to identify
trends, student progress, and scores. An overall class average
is provided to assist in analyzing student performance verses
the instructor remote to control
every aspect of the lesson from anywhere in the room. Floating
amongst the students allows monitoring of student progress and
providing assistance if needed.
