Evaluation of an Interactive Classroom Tool Applied in an Introductory Electric Circuits Course As universities struggle to control tuition costs class sizes have expanded annually to maximize revenue. Faculty members are challenged to find ways to maintain student engagement in this changing environment. Further complicating the issue is the changing expectations from internet-‐savvy students that are easily distracted by laptops and mobile phones. This paper discusses the results obtained after the introduction of an on-‐line tool that allows students to respond to questions via text message or laptop keystroke. The tool was introduced after the first course exam so that performance before and after the tool introduction could be compared. Survey results and test performance are discussed along with practical implementation tips.
