Staff uu disadvantages

Staff / UU Disadvantages

Responseware:

  • Reliant on the students entering the correct data

  • Reliant on the room having adequate wi-fi signal.

  • Requires a license / registration (£7per student)

    Generally:

  • Not suitable for proper tests - difficult to invigilate in tight / compact classrooms.

  • Preparation of quizzes (technically easy – but time taken thinking)


Moving forward

Moving forward

  • Examine why uptake in of the App was low

  • Identify Wi-Fi hotspots

  • Further comparison of the overall satisfaction with App and handset.

  • Benefit between different year groups
