How do I know I'm correctly answering questions with my clicker?

This FAQ was last modified on: Wednesday, August 15, 2018 09:20pm

You need to be on the answering screen to respond to questions — and ensure that your answers are recorded by your instructor. For example, it can be easy to get confused and send an instant message or note instead. When you turn on your clicker, the default screen displays the following icons: channel indicator, battery life, back (to the previous screen), and toolbox. When you answer a question, the answer you enter is displayed in the center of the screen. Don't go to settings and select Send Message or Note to Leader.
