H-ITT in-class quizzes

You earn points toward your overall course grade by coming to class and answering questions with your H-ITT remote tonusransmitter. For each question, an incorrect response is worth 1 point, while a correct response is worth 2 points. We expect to ask one question at the beginning of class for the material which will be covered that lecture or which was discussed in the previous lecture.

There are two options to record answers for in class questions using the H-ITT system. The traditional, and recommended, way is to purchase a supported remote "clicker" device. The other approach is to enter your answer via a web browser on any smart device with an internet connection, provided you purchase a subscription to "SoftClick". More information is here.

H-ITT purchase: You can purchase the H-ITT remote at textbook stores. H-ITT questions begin to count on Wednesday Aug. 29, but you should purchase your remote sooner for practice questions that will help you to become familiar with the system before the questions start counting for points.

H-ITT registration: To get H-ITT credit you must register your remote under your name at

http://www.phys.ufl.edu/~hitt/

and follow the instructions on that page to register your remote. Note the following:

  • Please register for the period you expect to attend (period 2 or period 4) because we cannot combine points for both periods.
  • It is your responsibility to ensure that your remote is functioning properly and that you are sending on the correct channel (see below).

Setting the H-ITT channel (Do at the start of each lecture)

  • Press and HOLD the down arrow button on the remote until the light turns RED.
  • (Rm 1101) Press 0 zero and get a green light, then press 8 and get a green light.
  • (Rm 1002) Press “0” zero and get a green light, then press “9” and get a green light.
  • Press the down arrow button again and the remote blinks green a few times.
  • It is recommended that you set the channel at the start of each lecture. Lights on the remote will indicate that your answer has been recorded on the system.
