EInstruction Classroom Performance System

EInstruction CPS Clicker

EInstruction's Classroom Performance System (CPS), also known as the "clickers," allows professors to stimulate class discussion with subjective and objective questions in an innovative technological format. Before students are able to use the clickers, they must purchase them for a nominal fee from the Distribution and Copy Center, create an online account with EInstruction, and enroll their clickers in each class that will make use of them. The following instructions are provided to assist students in these steps.

Technical Support

If your clicker does not appear to be working correctly, change the batteries. This will fix the problem most of the time. If the problem is not fixed, you can exchange the clicker for a replacement at the Distribution and Copy Center. Once replaced, clickers will need to be re-enrolled with the classes they are used in. There is no fee for registering a replacement clicker, but you will need to contact EInstruction at (888) 333-4988 or techsupp@einstruction.com to do so.

Students using the TurningPoint Clickers do not have to sign-up or enroll their clickers in any particular class. Rather, students must follow a five-second, one-time, in-class procedure.
