ASTRONOMY 110: CLASS SURVEY

Instructions: First, turn your clicker on using the on/off button. The blue POWER light will glow when the clicker is on. Wait until you are told to "start", and then select one of the five answers A, B, C, D, E and press the corresponding key. When you do so, the STATUS light should briefly flash. If it flashes green then your choice was recorded; if it blinks red then your choice was not recorded and you should press the key again.
