Abstract

Mentimeter is a web-based Clicker, Audience Response System (ARS) or Student Response System (SRS) which allows students to answer digital questions using a mobile device. It has the potential to transform the classroom environment into a more interactive, engaging and inclusive one. In this paper, a brief literature review has been provided which addresses the benefits of using ARS including Mentimeter in a large class. Additionally, the mechanics behind how the workings of the Mentimeter, its features and applications have been evaluated in order to offer the instructors with the insights about using Mentimeter for their own practice. Finally, a case study has been explained where Mentimeter was used for the formative assessment. In the present study, a Mentimeter formative assessment model has been developed which can be implemented as a good practice in Higher Education (HE). A survey on perception of students about using Mentimeter has been assessed and from the results, it is evident that using Mentimeter has a positive impact on students’ attitude and performance, learning environment and technical aspects. These results will be further discussed by linking pedagogical theories and its benefits.
