Revolutionize Real-Time Assessment with Bluetooth Clickers

Real-time assessment is a teaching and learning method that allows teachers to immediately assess student understanding of a particular topic. Bluetooth clickers have revolutionized real-time assessment by providing teachers with a quick, easy, and accurate way to gather student responses.

With the help of these technology-based tools, teachers can assess students’ understanding of the material in real-time, and make adjustments to their lessons accordingly.

Students use Bluetooth clickers to respond to questions or participate in surveys through a handheld device connected to the teacher’s computer or tablet. When the students respond, the teacher can see their answers in real-time on a graph or chart displayed on the screen.

The teacher gains an immediate understanding of the student’s level of understanding and identifies areas requiring additional support with this information.

The use of Bluetooth clickers in real-time assessments has several advantages. Firstly, it saves time and increases efficiency, as the teacher does not have to wait until the end of class to see the results.

Secondly, it promotes student engagement and participation. When students know that their answers are being collected and displayed in real time, they are more likely to be attentive and participate in class.

Moreover, real time assessment using Bluetooth clickers also allows teachers to track student progress over time. By collecting data on student responses over a period of weeks or months, teachers can identify patterns and trends in student learning, and adjust their teaching strategies accordingly. This can lead to a more effective and efficient learning experience for students.

In addition, real time assessment using Bluetooth clickers is also useful for students who are struggling with the material. Teachers can use the data collected through clickers to identify students who are having difficulty and provide them with additional support and resources.

This personalized approach to teaching can help students to overcome any challenges they may be facing and improve their understanding of the material.

In conclusion, the use of Bluetooth clickers in real time assessments is an effective and efficient way to assess student understanding and track student progress. By providing teachers with quick and accurate feedback on student performance, Bluetooth clickers are transforming the way that teachers teach and students learn.

Class Saathi at Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas

Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas (JNVs) is a system of central schools for talented students predominantly from rural areas in India. A rigorous entrance examination called the JNV Selection Test selects these students.

JNVs are fully residential and co-educational schools affiliated with the Central Board of Secondary Education (CBSE), New Delhi, with classes from VI to XII in English, Hindi, and regional languages.

TagHive, a technology company founded by an IITian, and JNV schools are making joint efforts in increasing the learning outcomes of students and optimizing the classes for the teachers with our Class Saathi line of assessment solutions.

We believe that for a classroom to be truly smart, the teacher needs to understand the voice of every student, and Class Saathi enables just that. Using the clicker device, teachers are able to engage every student and get insights into their learning to be able to create a contextualized strategy.

Currently, Jawahar Navodaya Vidyalayas deployed Class Saathi in 5 schools:

  1. JNV Bhopal, Madhya Pradesh
  2. JNV Mungeshpur, Delhi
  3. JNV Palghar, Maharashtra
  4. JNV RangaReddy, Telangana
  5. JNV Alleppey, Kerala

During the first phase of deployment, trainers conducted orientations and training sessions for 45+ teachers and principals from all 5 locations. These sessions took place in the early stages and after mid-term examinations to increase the adoption of Class Saathi. 

Teachers can’t wait to explore the Class Saathi solution in their classrooms and see how learning and engagement improve.

The orientation sessions that TagHive conducted, proved to be fruitful in developing a better understanding of the solution’s on-ground effectiveness amongst teachers. Here is a glimpse of some feedback that we received:

1) “The training was very useful. We think that Class Saathi can be beneficial for the students. For next term’s exams, we hope to conduct all revisions using Class Saathi only. We also hope to get in-person training so that our teachers can master Class Saathi.” – Kavya Ma’am (Principal, JNV Bhopal)

2) “Class Saathi is good, not just for testing students’ knowledge but the clicker system is very useful for creating interest in students for subjects. Quite helpful for teachers to conduct class in an interesting and effective way. The training has helped us understand the features better and I look forward to implementing it soon.” – Shivaji Sir (Principal, JNV Palghar)

3) “Our training was very beneficial. We have no complaints from the support team as well. Class Saathi has so many useful options (features). We can’t wait for the next refresher training session after vacation.” – Bhoop Sir (Technical Coordinator, JNV Rangareddy)

We are keenly awaiting phase 2 of our deployment with the JNVs wherein we will emphasize how to utilize Class Saathi assessment solutions during regular classroom hours, thus increasing classroom engagement and the performance of students.
