To have a SMART Response™ session in Study Island, perform the following steps: 

1. Make sure SMART Response is installed, the receiver is connected, and the receiver is ready for sessions. You can verify that the receiver is ready to start a session by ensuring that the receiver's indicator light is green. 

2. Log into Study Island. 

3. Select the appropriate grade from the programs area in the left column on the screen. 

4. Select the appropriate subject. 

5. Select the topic(s) you wish to test. 

6. Click 'Start Studying'. 

7. In the Session Type drop down, select ‘Classroom Response Systems’. 

8. Choose 'SMART Response™'. 

9. Select the number of questions. 

10. Click 'Next'. 

11. Select the appropriate class. 

12. Assign the clicker IDs to the appropriate students. If you do not know the ID numbers of your clickers, you may leave this blank and use the tool on the next screen to detect the clicker IDs. 

13. Click 'Next'. It will take a while for the application to load. The application must download several files the first time the application runs which could take up to 5 minutes with a slower connection. Subsequent sessions will load in 30 seconds or less. 

14. Select the appropriate mode: Teacher Led or Student Paced. 

15. Click 'Start Voting'. 

16. The students may now begin submitting answers. Use the available buttons to navigate the test and display answers and results. You may stop/restart the polling during the session.
