TurningPoint then translates the responses into results in the form of test scores, charts, and graphs.</p> <p>After a presentation, TurningPoint can store the data for later access or for use in reporting or grading.</p> <p>Some reasons for using a Student Response System (SRS):</p> <p> Engage students in active learning. </p> <p> Encourage students' critical thought processes requiring synthesis of knowledge by providing them a way to answer questions. </p> <p> Improve student participation.</p> <p> Encourage group discussion. </p> <p> Encourage student preparation prior to class through testing of knowledge of reading materials. </p> <p> Improve lecturers understanding of students' comprehension of topics studied.</p> <p> Provide students with immediate feedback about the accuracy of their understanding of the topics studied. </p> <p> Provide lecturer with instant feedback of students' understanding of concepts and content knowledge. </p> <p> Provide lecturers with the ability to customise classes based on student responses. </p> <p> Use analysis of student responses as the basis for class discussion. </p> <p> Provide lecturers with instant evaluation feedback on the lecturer. </p> <p>Important things to remember:</p> <p> Always open TurningPoint and not PowerPoint.</p> <p> Test your session using the simulated data option.</p> <p> Reset your session before each use.</p> <p> Check the hardware - receiver and handsets.</p> <p> Use the TurningPoint Save icon to save session results before you leave the teaching room to somewhere you can access e.g. memory stick or personal drive space.</p> <p>Activities</p> <p>4Activity 1 Opening TurningPoint</p> <p>6Activity 2 Create an Interactive TurningPoint Slide</p> <p>8Activity 3 Adding a response counter or response table</p> <p>11Activity 4 Assigning a correct answer(s) to a question</p> <p>15Activity 5 Allowing multiple answers to a question</p> <p>17Activity 6 Adding a countdown indicator</p> <p>19Activity 7 Creating a demographic slide</p> <p>21Activity 8 Testing the Session</p> <p>22Activity 9 Resetting Slides</p> <p>23Activity 10 - Setting up the receiver</p> <p>25Activity 11 - Running the interactive presentation</p> <p>27Activity 12 - Adding slides during a presentation session:</p> <p>29Activity 13 Saving session results</p> <p>30Activity 14 Creating reports</p> <p>33Further Information and Contacts</p> <p>Activity 1 Opening TurningPoint</p> <p>Before opening TurningPoint ensure that PowerPoint is not already open. To open TurningPoint you can either:</p> <p>a) Go to the Start menu; choose Turning Technologies, LLC and then TurningPoint 2008.</p> <p>b) Use the TurningPoint shortcut icon on your desk top. </p> <p>Both of these methods will open Microsoft PowerPoint and TurningPoint simultaneously. The TurningPoint software appears as an additional toolbar within PowerPoint.</p> <p>The TurningPoint Toolbar</p> <p>When you open TurningPoint, PowerPoint opens and the TurningPoint tab is added to the other tabbed toolbars.</p> <p>The following descriptions from the Turning Technologies web site define the buttons that make up the tools in the TurningPoint toolbar (from left to right). </p> <p> TurningPoint icon - Allows you to view information about your TurningPoint Software.

(A session is a runthrough of a presentation where an audience has submitted responses to some or all of the questions.)</p> <p> Disk icon - Save Session, this stores the current session data for retrieval later.</p> <p> Insert Slide - Displays a menu of TurningPoint slides that you select to create a presentation. </p> <p> Paint palette icon - Convert to Picture Slide, this is used to assign and order pictures as answers instead of text. </p> <p> Insert Object - Displays a menu of items that you select to enhance a slide.</p> <p> Tools Displays a menu of options to report, modify, track, create and integrate TurningPoint presentations and sessions this is also where you can edit the default settings for the presentation or a specific slide. </p> <p> Select Input Source This drop down menu allows you to selects the type of response devices to be used with the presentation and defaults to Response Devices.</p> <p> Participants - Provides options to be create, edit and delete Participant Lists.</p> <p> Question mark icon - Opens the online help file.</p> <p>Activity 2 Create an Interactive TurningPoint Slide</p> <p>1. From the TurningPoint toolbar, select the Insert Slide menu to display the list of pre-defined slides. TurningPoint provides a variety of pre-defined slides and each slide can be used in the default format or customized. </p> <p>2. Highlight and select your chosen slide type. TurningPoint inserts a slide with a question region, an answer region, and a chart region. The example shown below is a Vertical Slide.</p> <p>3. Select the region labelled Enter question text by clicking anywhere within it and type in a question.</p> <p>4. Select the region labelled Enter answer text and type in the answers. Add new answers by hitting the return key. You can enter a maximum of ten answers per slide.</p> <p>5. Steps 1 to 4 will be repeated for each interactive slide you wish to include. Create another 3 or 4 slides using different slide options. Include at least one slide which has a correct answer(s) Activity 4 will show you how to assign correct answer(s) to a slide.</p> <p>6. Save your file before exiting PowerPoint in the same way that you normally would.</p> <p>Change Chart Type</p> <p>If you decide that you would like a slide to have a different type of chart to the one you originally chose you can change this by using the Insert Object menu.</p> <p>1. Navigate to the TurningPoint slide in your presentation on which you would like to change the chart and select Insert Object from the TurningPoint Menu. Highlight and select your chosen slide type and TurningPoint will change the chart on your slide to match the type.</p> <p>Activity 3 Adding a response counter or response table</p> <p>A Response Counter is an object you can add to your slides which will keep a track of how many participants have submitted a response out of the total number of participants. A Response Counter appears during a presentation when polling opens and disappears when polling is closed.</p> <p>To add a Response Counter:</p> <p>1. Navigate to the slide in your presentation to which you would like to add a Response Counter.</p> <p>2. Select Insert Object from the TurningPoint toolbar. The Insert Object menu opens.</p> <p>3. Select Response Counter to display the submenu of Response Counters there are six styles available.</p> <p>4. Select the type of Response Counter you would like to appear on the slide. When you select the Response Counter, TurningPoint places it on your slide. You can move or resize the Response Counter to better fit your slide by dragging it and dropping it. You can also delete the Response Counter if you no longer want it to appear on the slide. To replace an existing Response Counter with a different type repeat steps 2 and 3. The current Response Counter will be replaced with the new one you select.</p> <p>A Response Table is another object you can add to slides to keep track of which participants have submitted a response. A Response Table appears during a presentation when polling opens and disappears when polling is closed. The table shows each participants number, and the background colour of the number changes when a response from the participant has been successfully received.</p> <p>To add a Response Table:</p> <p>1. Navigate to the slide in your presentation to which you would like to add a Response Table.</p> <p>2. Select Insert Object from the TurningPoint toolbar. The Insert Object menu opens.</p> <p>3. Select Response Table to display the submenu of Response Tables.</p> <p>4. Select the type of Response Table you would like to appear on the slide - fixed or rotating. A fixed table shows all the participants. A rotating table displays up to 40 participants at a time, and rotates through the list every few seconds. It shows participants 140, then 4180, and so on. When it reaches the last participant, the next rotation starts again with 1. A rotating table takes up less space on your slide if you have more than 40 participants.</p> <p>5. When you select the Response Table, TurningPoint places it on your slide. You can move the Response Table by dragging it and dropping it into the new location. You can also change the font it uses to better fit your slide by right-clicking anywhere in the table and selecting the font option from the drop-down menu. You can also delete the Response Table if you no longer want it to appear on the slide.</p> <p>Activity 4 Assigning a correct answer(s) to a question</p> <p>You can specify whether answers in your TurningPoint slides should be considered correct or incorrect. By setting answer values, you can show the correct answer after polling with a Correct Answer indicator.</p> <p>There are two ways to assign correct answers to a question either using the Settings Window or using the TurningPoint Task Pane.</p> <p>Assigning a correct answer using the Settings Window:</p> <p>1. Select Tools from the TurningPoint toolbar then select Settings this is the icon that looks like a pair of spectacles. </p> <p>2. The TurningPoint Settings menu opens.</p> <p>3. From the list of slides (in the left pane of the Settings menu) select the slide on which you would like to identify a correct answer and then click on the answer you want to identify as correct. The settings for that answer will then appear in the right pane.</p> <p>4. Select Correct from the Answer Value drop-down menu.</p> <p>5. TurningPoint sets the selected answer as Correct and automatically sets all other answers on that slide as Incorrect. You can also have more than one correct answer on a slide by repeating these steps on another answer. You can change an answer you marked as Correct to Incorrect by repeating these steps and selecting Incorrect from the drop-down menu. </p> <p>6. When you have finished marking answers as Correct click on Done.</p> <p>Assigning a correct answer using the TurningPoint Task Pane:</p> <p>1. Navigate to the slide that you wish to assign a correct answer(s) to. </p> <p>2. A Task Pane should be visible on the right of the screen if it is not there click inside the answer area of the slide and it should appear.</p> <p>3. The Task Pane will show the current answer value for each answer. Select Correct from the Answer Value drop-down menu next to the answer you wish to mark as correct. All of the other answers will then be automatically set to Incorrect. If there is more than one correct answer simply select Correct from the drop-down menu next to that answer. </p> <p>To add a Correct Answer indicator:</p> <p>A Correct Answer indicator is an object that gives a visual indication to participants of the correct answer(s) after polling for a question is finished. A Correct Answer indicator appears during a presentation when you advance the slide after displaying the chart and it appears for each answer marked as Correct or for which a point value is specified.</p> <p>1. Navigate to the slide in your presentation to which you would like to add a Correct Answer indicator.</p> <p>2. Select Insert Object from the TurningPoint toolbar. The Insert Object menu opens.</p> <p>3. Select Correct Answer Indicator to display the submenu of Correct Answer Indicators. Select the type of Correct Answer indicator you would like to appear on the slide.</p> <p>4. When you select the Correct Answer indicator, TurningPoint places it on your slide.</p> <p>Note: You can delete the Correct Answer indicator if you no longer want it to appear on the slide. To replace an existing Correct Answer indicator with a different type, simply repeat these steps. The current Correct Answer indicator will be replaced with the new one you select.</p> <p>Activity 5 Allowing multiple answers to a question</p> <p>Activity 4 demonstrated how to set answers as correct or incorrect for a particular question, however the standard settings in TurningPoint only allow each participant to submit one answer for each question. This setting may be appropriate if you require participants to select only one correct answer from the number available, however if you wish them to submit multiple responses to one question then the Responses setting must be changed.</p> <p>To change the number of responses recorded for each handset:</p> <p>1. Navigate to the slide in your presentation for which you would like participants to submit more than one response.</p> <p>2. Select Tools from the TurningPoint toolbar then select Settings this is the icon that looks like a pair of spectacles. Alternatively you can select the Settings (spectacles) Icon direct from the Session Options area of the Task Pane on the right of the screen.</p> <p>3. The TurningPoint settings menu opens.</p> <p>4. Scroll down to the Misc settings where you will find a setting called Responses. This setting determines the number of responses accepted from each handset without overwriting the previous response. The default for this setting is 1, change this to the number of responses you want participants to submit.</p> <p>Activity 6 Adding a countdown indicator</p> <p>A Countdown indicator is an object you can add to your slide to give participants a visual indication that polling for a question is about to close. The Countdown indicator shows the number of seconds remaining and counts down to zero. A countdown can have a maximum length of 90 seconds.</p> <p>The indicator appears during a presentation when you advance the slide during polling. When the countdown expires, the Countdown indicator disappears and polling is automatically closed.</p> <p>To add a Countdown indicator:</p> <p>1. Navigate to the slide in your presentation to which you would like to add an Countdown indicator.</p> <p>2. Select Insert Object from the TurningPoint toolbar. The Insert Object menu opens.</p> <p>3. Select Countdown to display the submenu of Countdown indicators. Select the type of Countdown indicator you would like to appear on the slide.</p> <p>4. Select the Countdown Indicator you wish to use and TurningPoint will place it on your slide.</p> <p>5. The default length of time for a Countdown indicator is 10 seconds. To change this setting either:</p> <p>a. Select Tools and then Settings from the TurningPoin...</p>
