iClicker offers asynchronous quizzes for students to respond to outside of class.
Top Hat lets educators engage their students wherever learning takes place. Add questions, polls, and discussions to readings, review materials, and other content that students can interact with in class or on their own time.
iClicker offers polling with only five question types.
Top Hat’s 14 question types encourage students to think of what they’ve learned and apply it in different ways.
iClicker’s low-stakes quizzing requires instructors to ask questions to students outside the platform. This makes it difficult for students to look at quiz results when they study.
With Top Hat, the questions you create are stored on our platform. They can be used to assess students in formative, low-stakes, and high-stakes settings, while you stay in control of custom due dates for your class and individual students. Better still, students can work through these tests on their own time, on their own devices.
Some iClicker users have found it difficult to set up and use.
