Classroom response systems (CRS) offer a management tool for engaging students in the classroom. These systems have been used in a variety of fields and at all levels of education. Typical goals of CRS questions are discussed, as well as the advantages to both students and instructors as a result of using them. These systems are especially valuable as a means of introducing and monitoring peer
learning methods in the large lecture classroom. But the efficacy of using these systems depends strongly on the quality of the questions used. The integration of a CRS in an introductory physics module is discussed along with examples of questions used and the student assessment carried out.
