Classroom Response System

Last updated May 30, 2023

A Classroom Response System (CRS) is a technology that enables instructors to ask questions, gather student responses, display those responses in real-time, even grade them if necessary. A CRS 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 responses.

iClicker  is highly recommended for use in UTEP classrooms.

Attendance Geolocation Tips



The iClicker is free to UTEP faculty and students using the mobile app or website, however,  the hand-held remote devices (the clickers) 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.
