Coming soon in private beta, iClicker's Groups feature takes the awkwardness out of group work and facilitates consensus-building over competition. Before class, instructors can manually or automatically assign students to groups from the instructor website. In class, Groups will be available as a new way to poll the class. Students must work together in their groups to agree, and their Group response is submitted upon reaching consensus. Groups will support multiple choice responses in its first iteration, and instructors will be able to switch between Group questions and individual questions as needed during class.
We're only making Groups available to iClicker Cloud instructors upon request during this private beta period. If you're interested in trying the beta version of Groups in Fall 2022, please fill out our sign up form. Participants are asked to run a group poll at least 3 times this fall and complete a brief survey near the end of the term.
