The IVS-Basic program meets the wishes and demands of most users. With IVS-Basic you can have a anonymous session. Every participant gives his or her answer by pressing a number on the voting pad, however only the total of the answers is shown on the screen. Results in IVS-Basic can be used to make a comparison or a crossing. In case of a crossing a split can be made showing only one group in the audience for example “the managers”. In IVS-Basic it is also possible to select multiple answers from a maximum of 999. De 1st, 2nd and other choices can be shown on the screen seperately.
The following is an overview of a number of the IVS-Basic’s standard options:
When using interactive voting, the results are displayed during the voting. Votes will influence the chart directly as they come in.
By establishing a number of “characteristic questions” on age, position or place of residence, for example, at the start of a session, these questions can be crossed at any given time, providing you with information on the opinions of the various groups with regard to the statements presented. The results are then displayed in a stacked diagram, providing a clear and direct indication of how the various groups have voted.
The possibility to compare results can be applied in various ways. One commonly used option is to measure the influence of a forum. Participants are asked to give an opinion before and after the discussion.
Another way of comparing
A second option for comparing results is to combine the results of earlier sessions with those of the current session. This could concern the results of a different group from the same training course or the results of an earlier session with the same group. Prior results from a nationally held survey, for instance, can also be entered. These can then be compared on the spot with the results from the group present at the time.
This methodology, which originates from the U.S., is applied often at the Technological University of Delft and was developed by Eric Mazur. The principle can be applied to every field. Students are asked to answer a centrally posed question directly. The results are then displayed without giving the correct answer. The students are then given a few minutes to discuss their answers and to convince one another of them. The same question is then asked and answered once again. Experience has shown that the number of correct answers to questions that are posed for a second time is considerably higher.
