According to the report, better formative assessment techniques will drive this market. A lot of educational institutions are using interactive response systems primarily for formative assessments. In traditional teaching methods, instructors judge the effectiveness of teaching through the grades scored by students in examinations. However, institutions are now switching to the most real-time assessment of student performance accompanied with adjustment of instruction techniques after analyzing responses.
Further, the report states that high cost of implementation is hindering the growth of this market. In most regions, interactive response systems are still used in the form of devices, which must be purchased by students at an additional cost. In a typical device-based setup, students are required to spend over $50 to purchase the device. This is an additional out-of-pocket cost, which they incur apart from regular fees and other related costs.
