The place of formative assessment within learning has long been established (Draper 2009, Nicol and Mcfarlane-Dick, 2006) and electronic voting systems (EVS) are an easy to use technology that allows lecturers to incorporate regular formative questioning into their teaching sessions. One of the key benefits of using EVS are that large class sizes are not a barrier to their use (Campbell & Mayer). Experience within the Faculty of Health & Human Sciences has demonstrated that they can be used to create a level of stimulation and interactivity that increases the student's learning even in large groups.
