1 TurningPoint 2008 (Classroom Response Systems) DIGITAL LEARNING LAB QUICK STEP TUTORIAL SECTION 1 Creating an Interactive PowerPoint Slide 1. When TurningPoint 2008 is opened (see desktop icon below), a non interactive slide is displayed. TurningPoint 2008.lnk 2. Locate the TurningPoint Toolbar on the top portion of your PowerPoint screen. 3. From the TurningPoint Toolbar, click Insert Slide (Figure A). 4. Select a Slide Type (vertical, True False, Fill in the blank, etc.) from the drop down list of pre defined slides. Each slide can be used as is or customized to behave as you like (for example, if you choose vertical charts you get a question, answer [Enter to add more answers], and a vertical chart region that integrates with the answers). Or you can simply pick a generic type question to edit and use! 5. Enter your question into the text box by editing the text entitled Enter Question text (Figure B). 6. Enter appropriate responses into the text box by entering/editing the text entitled Enter answer text (Figure C). Press Enter or Return after each potential response. 7. Click Insert Object (Figure D) to access the drop down menu. Select a reminder type countdowns, response counters, response tables, and/or answer now keys to add static or interactive controls to your slide. Right click on the object in the slide after inserting or choose Tools > Settings to edit its features. You may need to resize these objects to fit within the area of your slide (a description of each is below):

2 Charts: Vertical, 3D, or pie charts Answer now: gives a visual cue that the slide is an interactive slide to respond to. Appears when polling opens and disappears at the close of polling. *Countdown: gives a visual cue of the time left to answer a question. When the countdown expires polling automatically closes for the question. (*this is a recommended option to use!) Response Counter: keeps visual track of how many participants have submitted a response out of the total number of participants. Response Table: Similar to a response calendar but instead shows either a fixed or rotating number array of responses (use this especially if you are using Participant Lists to identify clickers assigned to students). *Correct Answer Indicator: indicates what the correct answer is after polling for a question has completed. (*this is a recommended option to use!) Stats: reveals statistics about the responses after the polling has closed (mean, median, standard deviation, and variance). Text messaging: this option is currently not available with HCC s Turning Point brand of hardware! SECTION 2 Hardware Setup 1. Make sure you have the appropriate equipment: Response Clickers, USB Receiver, and the computer USB slot. Make sure your presentation is on the computer hard drive. Plug in the TurningPoint 2008 Receiver into a computer s USB slot. 2. Click Tools on the TurningPoint 2008 Toolbar. 3. Select Settings from the drop down menu. 4. From the TurningPoint Settings window, select Response Device at the top of the left pane. In the ResponseCard Misc. section you will need to double click and change the number in Expected Devices to match the number of your class size/response audience.( Figure E)

3 5. The Response Device settings will be displayed. Your Receiver Channel will be displayed in the drop down next to your receiver s serial number. (Figure F) 6. Click Done. SECTION 3 Polling with Response Devices 1. Open Turning Point 2008 and open your presentation you wish to poll the class/audience with. 2. Make sure Response Devices is selected in the drop down menu on the Turning Point Toolbar (Figure G). 3. To prep slides for polling, reset your Session by clicking Reset > Session on the Turning Point Toolbar. This will erase any previous response data collected for that presentation. 4. If you are using an Infrared Receiver (USB), make sure you have a clear line of sight between the clickers and the receiver. 5. From the PowerPoint toolbar, launch your presentation in Slide Show mode and click to advance through the presentation. Once the interactive slide appears click until you see the polling: open shows. At this point students can begin entering answers. When the polling: closed status shows no new polling can be collected for the current slide. NOTE: To advance slides, you may use any method PowerPoint allows, such as clicking the mouse or pressing the space bar, arrow keys, or Enter key. 6. Participants can change their answer by simply re clicking their desired answer. Polling will remain open until you advance to display the graphical results or the countdown timer expires. SECTION 4 Saving a Group Response Session 1. From the Turning Point tab click on Save Session. This will save the response information collected during the polling. 2. If you wish to rerun the session at a later date then (after saving the session) click Reset on the Turning Point menu bar.

4 TurningPoint 2008 (ADDITIONAL OPTIONS) SECTION 1 Creating Participant Lists Turning Point will allow you to assign a clicker to each student in your entire class and give polling quizzes that can be graded and detailed reports can be created from each assessment as well. A Participant List captures the audience names, their Device IDs, and other relevant information. 1. When TurningPoint 2008 is opened (see desktop icon below), from the TurningPoint toolbar select Participants > Participants List Wizard. 2. Next, Select the Education Template to be used for the new Participant List then select the Next button to continue. 3. Create a name for your template (for example: Math100, Nursing343MWFclass, etc ) 4. TurningPoint displays the Participant List information entries (called fields). All entries that make up the template appear in the Selected Fields region on the right. Use this page to add, delete, or reorder the entries that make up the template using the middle arrows. The best options to use are just Last Name and First Name (the software automatically assigns a Device ID field). Select other fields if needed then click Next when finished. 5. TurningPoint displays the Groups entry box. Use this screen to add groups to your Participant List. Groups provide

5 categorization for greater reporting opportunities, such as demographic reports or team competitions. This is not a required option to add but you can still add in the event later you may use it! If so, type in a group name and click Add. Click Next to move forward when finished. 6. You will then see the Participant List details that you just created and from this point you can click Finish or go Back and edit the list. 7. TurningPoint displays the Participant Information window where you can enter, paste, edit or import data. You can also add/remove/rename fields and groups from this window. Add names, device ID s (located on the back of the clicker) and other participant information to this new list (and if you are currently using groups of students check which group they belong to). 8. Select the Done button, or select File > Save to save the data in the Participant List before closing the Participant Information window. TurningPoint adds the new Participant List to TurningPoint toolbar in the Select a Participant List drop down menu. Select the desired Participant List when you are ready to give a polling assessment in class. Remember to first Reset the session on the toolbar to erase any previously existing data (see Quick Step Tutorial). You may also want to add a Response Table (Add Objects area of toolbar) so students can see their answers collected on the screen (see Tools > Settings to select True to display student Device ID or name).

6 SECTION 2 Adding a slide (or a question) on the fly during a presentation Think of a new question to ask during a polling presentation? TurningPoint gives you the flexibility of adding a template or custom slide while running the presentation during class! Inserting a new slide is an option available at your fingertips through the Presentation Showbar. 1. To add a new slide click the drop down menu that opens from the Presentation Showbar allowing you to select the slide type to be inserted into the presentation. 2. To insert a blank ( or Custom Slide ) select the Insert an on the fly Slide drop down menu on the Showbar, then select Custom. 3. The Custom Question window opens to display the fields for typing the question and answer choices to be used on the interactive slide. Enter the question in the top region of the window. Enter the answer choices in the lower region, separating each answer with a line break. 4. If you would like to reuse the presentation WITH the newly added slide, please save the file. From the PowerPoint menu, select File > Save As. If you forget, TurningPoint will ask you before closing. SECTION 3 Creating Reports If you assigned clickers by Device ID to students then you can run reports for grading and other purposes. TurningPoint allows you to generate and view a wide variety of reports based on the responses you received during your polling sessions. The reports are generated as printable Word documents or Excel worksheets with information about the questions and answers, participants, and responses gathered in your presentation. Turning Reports displays a hierarchical menu of reports organized by category, such as Results by Question Reports and Demographic Reports. If you click on one of these categories, the Turning Reports screen displays subheadings of specific report titles, and shows samples of each selected report!! 1. Select Tools in the TurningPoint toolbar. The Tools menu opens.

7 2. Select Turning Reports from the Tools menu. The Turning Reports window opens, displaying two tabs: Sessions and Reports. 3. Select the Sessions tab. The Turning Reports window displays a list of the session files in your Sessions folder. Select the Current Session (in red text) to use the session currently open in PowerPoint. Or select a session file below it you would like to create a report for. 4. Select the Reports tab once you have selected a session file. The window displays a list of the categories of reports you can generate from your session file. Each category of reports is listed by name. You can double click the category or click on the plus sign beside the category to view a list of reports in each category. The icon beside the report name indicates whether it generates an Excel file or a Word file. When you select a report, you can see a sample preview of the report on the right hand side of the window. Select the type of report(s) you would like to generate by selecting the check box next to the report name. 5. Select the Generate Report button. TurningPoint generates the report(s) and opens it in Microsoft Excel or Word. This may take some time, especially if you selected to generate a large number of reports OR if there are a large number of questions or participants in the session. If you selected to generate multiple reports, one Excel file is created with worksheets for each report.
