PONTOTOC, Miss. (WTVA) -- Murray Collum keeps a close eye on the progress of his students with technology.
"Before you had to wait until they had an assessment at the end of the actual chapter. Now, we have an assessment and we have immediate feedback. When we have that immediate feedback, I can see who needs to be remediated instantly and I can see who is ready to go on to another skill," Collum said.
In January, Pontotoc Middle School became one of 24 to receive complete technology packages through grant money.
"Students like the interaction. They like clickers in their hands and putting their answers in and seeing the results," Plantersville Middle School Teacher Joan Stiles said.
"I like the board because you get to touch it and I like the clickers because you get to take your test and you just put your answer in and get it immediately," student Mollie Moore said.
"I like to push the buttons and send it to Mr. Collum. I like the question he gives us on the board and the practice questions," student Umontie Clay said.
When the teacher asks a multiple choice question, each child can plug in their answer.
High school students are on hand to assist those having a little trouble.
Just how well this pilot project works will be closely examined by the University of Mississippi's Center for Educational Research and Evaluation.
