What Is Progress Pulse?

Progress Pulse is a cloud-based tool for classroom response. Teachers use Progress Pulse to ask their students questions quickly and easily, in order to:

Teachers ask questions verbally or present the questions to students outside the program (perhaps on a whiteboard or overhead projector). Progress Pulse does not display your questions.

Progress Pulse can be used with any web-enabled device (such as a mobile phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop computer).

For more information, see the Progress Pulse On-Demand Session.

How to Use Progress Pulse
  1. Have your students log in. (Click here if you're not sure how to find students' user names and passwords.)
  2. Once the students are logged in, have them select Join Class Session.
  3. Select the type of question you want to ask: True or False, Multiple Choice, Numeric Response, Short Answer, or Opinion.
  4. Ask your question.
  5. Have your students respond.
    You will see:
    • The number of participants connected
    • The percentage of participants who have responded
    • The number of students who have not responded (awaiting responses)
    • The responses from the students (The number of responses is shown beside the response icon Figure with Number.)
  6. Now, you can do one of the following:
    • You can choose the correct answer to wrap up the question (or your opinion for Opinion questions). Students will see the correct answer you choose and their own response (not other students' answers). You will go back to the main screen, where you can choose to ask another type of question.
    • You can select Clear Response to clear all students' answers. Students can then answer again, or you can ask another question of the same type.
    • Select Back to go back to the main screen.
  7. To end the session and return to Renaissance Place, select Exit.
    If you are still on a question type page, first select Back. Then, select Exit.
    When you exit Progress Pulse, students are returned to the student Home page.
