SMART Response PE
interactive response system

With the push of a button on their wireless remotes, students can instantly tell you how much they know.

You'll no longer have to wonder whether all your students are keeping up with lesson material, because you'll see precisely how well each student is doing. With that insight, you can adapt lessons based on test results or how students respond to your questions.

Gain instant insight into student understanding

The SMART Response™ PE interactive response system combines handheld wireless remotes (or clickers), a receiver and powerful assessment software. Teachers can gauge student understanding on the spot and adjust their teaching accordingly to be assured that all students in the classroom are following the lesson. Icons and screencap SMART Response assessment software guides you through every task with intuitive prompts, clear directions and direct links.

Best of all, SMART Response PE integrates seamlessly with SMART Notebook collaborative learning software, giving you the tools you need for developing and delivering lessons and evaluating student learning.

Create questions easily

SMART Response PE provides everything you need to spontaneously add questions to lessons or easily prepare quizzes, tests and exams. The system combines the power of SMART Response assessment software with the lesson-creation tools and features of SMART Notebook software.

Using SMART Response PE with SMART Notebook software enables you to create your own questions that can be easily integrated into any lesson or assessment activity. You can also choose from hundreds of ready-made SMART Response question sets available on the SMART Exchange website, or import questions and quizzes from third-party software applications and question banks.

Ensure every student understands the lesson

Once students respond to questions using their remotes, the results are summarized in a pie chart or bar graph in SMART Notebook software. The instant responses enable you and your students to see if the majority of the answers are correct, or if further review is required. By seeing results right away, you can adjust your teaching on the fly and be assured that every student in the classroom understands the lesson. And thanks to Teacher Tools, test results are also automatically added to the built-in gradebook and saved in a single file, which helps you organize data. The privacy mode allows you to restrict viewing of sensitive information, such as student identification data and test scores.

Evaluate student progress quickly

Teacher Tools enables you to access, view and manage all assessment data in one location. Tag student names or assessment questions with keywords to track characteristics that will help you measure and evaluate performance. You can tag questions by educational standards and cognitive levels, helping you track performance and identify areas for student improvement. Teacher Tools also enables you to choose from 18 in-depth reports, giving you the ability to display trends, view performance data based on custom criteria and create reports that are as simple or as detailed as you need – from pie charts showing individual student achievement to bar graphs comparing class performance. You can even create assessment reports that show grades for the entire school year.

Work with familiar products and applications

SMART Response PE is integrated with SMART Board interactive whiteboards and SMART Notebook software, as well as other education software and Microsoft Word, which means you can use it with the equipment you already have, without extra training required. You can also create custom exports and upload test results to third-party gradebooks or databases.
