Student Response System

A Student Response System (SRS) is an in-class assessment tool that allows the professor to both receive and provide instant feedback on the effectiveness of their teaching or the extent to which students are learning. This tool also helps instructors activate the classroom and engage the students. Previously referred to as "clickers" because most Student Response Systems required students to purchase a physical device (clicker) to use for responding to polls and questions in the classroom.  The newer Student Response Systems allow students to use their own mobile device for responses and only require them to purchase a subscription for the service.


Top Hat - New Student Response System

VCU now has an official partnership with Top Hat, which will become the University’s supported Student Response System (SRS). This cloud-based solution offers many new features for classroom engagement, and students will no longer be required to purchase a physical device but can use their mobile device, and simply purchase a Top Hat subscription. Start using Top Hat as early as Spring 2018!  Click here to learn more.
