Problem: One of the major problems facing students is a lack of automaticity with basic and also complex problems they may encounter on timed exams. Students often hear conflicting messages of, "Take your time and get it right" to "You need to work faster to finish more problems." In both circumstances, the student still is not getting immediate feedback on whether or not either method of completing the problems was effective nor on improving their process to find a median between both philosophies.
Abstract: After using a variety of pen and paper techniques, I found the e-clicker app and web portal. This app and portal provided a timed environment that gave me and the students instant feedback on their performance and allowed them to make adjustments.
