PERSONAL RESPONSE SYSTEM (PRS):

PRS Q & A:

Question 1:

   Why do I have to use PRS transmitter?

      Answer:

   PRS is not only an effective tool in checking lecture attendance but also a great motivation in participating in the lecture multiple choices questions.

 

     Question 2:

   Where can I get a PRS transmitter?

Answer:

    It is available at the campus bookstore at the beginning of every semester.

 

Question 3:

    Can I share PRS transmitter with other people?

Answer:

    Yes, you can. As long as they are not taking the same class with you.

 

Question 4:

     How can I use the PRS transmitter?

Answer:

You have to fill out the registration form that you receive from the Professor or T.A.  at the beginning of the semester.  Refer to the quick user manual for how to set up your PRS transmitter.

 

Question 5:

     How many times am I allowed to change my answer? Does it affect my attendance scores if my answers are wrong? 

Answer:

     You are allowed to change your answer twice. The allotted time is around 1.00 minute for every question. It does not matter if  your answer is right or wrong you still get full credit. Make sure that your answer is in the system.

Question 6:

     What should I do if I forget the PRS transmitter at home or miss some questions in the lecture?

Answer:

     You have to write down the answers on a piece of paper with your full name, student ID and pass it to the Professor or T. A. at the end of the lecture.

 

Question 7:

      Where and when do I get my attendance scores?

  Answer:

       You will get a report after every exam during the semester with your attendance scores from your recitation instructor.

 

      Question 8:

       What should I do if I find that my attendance scores are wrong?

       Answer:

        You should contact T.A. or instructor at the lecture for correcting your scores.

          

     Question 9:

       Why do I get attendance scores lower than my classmate even though we both missed the same number of lectures?

 Answer:

         The attendance scores depend on the number of questions asked during the lectures, not by the number of days you attend.  Each question is worth three points. The day your friend attended the lecture the Professor asked more questions than the day you did. Therefore, your friend’s scores are higher than yours.
