Diagnostic and formative assessment tools are critical to helping teachers understand what students know and understand. The SMART Response system is designed to further involve students in the learning process using their remote handsets, while also providing teachers with the feedback information needed to make sound instructional decisions in real time.

One system for all your assessment needs

SMART Response provides immediate feedback to teachers, during lesson time, about student knowledge, subject retention and understanding. This enables educators to modify their lessons on the fly. The teacher simply asks pertinent questions of the class who then answer (or 'vote') via the student remote handset. The powerful suite of tools enables fast assessment.

Effortlessly analyze and report on student and class progress
SMART Response makes real time interactivity and assessment a breeze. Teachers can display a prepared set of questions on the whiteboard or ask ad hoc questions during the lesson - students key in their answers with their remotes. The Response software tallies and breaks down the results by question and student, enabling teachers to spend time on the important tasks highlighted by the system for more effective teaching.

SMART Response LE
In addition, SMART Response LE is a simply designed and colorful interactive student response system for children in early education or special education who may or may not be reading.
Choosing from a range of easy-to-understand symbols on their handheld remote, students answer simple questions, receive instant feedback and become more engaged in a topic. Without leaving their SMART Notebook lesson, teachers quickly gage comprehension and adjust their teaching, assured that every student in their busy classroom has been heard.
