The Different Types of Clicker Questions

When utilising our clicker systems to engage audiences at workshops, exhibitions, training days or conferences, you are given the opportunity to put an entirely new twist on the way you approach a presentation.

However, don’t make the mistake of thinking a standard set of clicker questions is enough to see results and engage the audience as much as possible.

In fact, it’s a good idea to get to grips with all the possible questions you could come up with to make your presentation even better.

Here are some questions you can use to create some intriguing, complex and detailed questions for your upcoming presentation:

The Six Question Types

–          Conceptual or A Single Answer – The easiest to write and probably the most common, focusing on testing concepts and facts.

–          Discussion – No right answer, yet allows people to raise questions and future discussion after providing their opinion through Audience Response Systems.

–          Surveys – A question format that ultimately leads to the collection of data, a hypothesis and an overall result.

–          Reasoning – providing reasoning with each answer so that you can avoid less informative true or false questions.

–          Imagery – using images on a presentation board to provide further reference for your audience.

–          Predictions – A question that gives the audience the chance to make a prediction based on their findings.
