SMART Technologies site with information about the Response System.


"With the push of a button on their wireless remotes, students can instantly tell you how much they know.You'll no longer have to wonder whether all your students are keeping up with lesson material, since you'll see precisely how well each student is doing. That insight will help you adapt lessons based on test results or how students respond to your questions."

One system for all your assessment needs

SMART Response (formerly called Senteo) is an interactive response system combining handheld wireless remotes (or clickers), a receiver and powerful assessment software that allows you to create tests and manage, track, and evaluate the results. SMART Response software guides you through every task with intuitive prompts, clear directions and direct links. You always know what step you're on and where to go next. Best of all, it integrates seamlessly with SMART Notebook software, giving you all the tools you need to design engaging and interactive test material.

Creating a Class List in Excel (csv file)
The order of the columns isn't important, but the first row must contain the column headings identifying what's in each column.
  • You must have a column with the heading ID Number.
    • You must put a single space between ID and Number.
    • In place of ID Number, you can use ID, Student ID or Number.
    • If you don't use a correct column name for the ID Number, the software is unable to import the list.
  • Specify student first and last names in separate columns.
    • For the student's given name, use First Name for the column heading.
    • For the student's family name, use Last Name as the column heading.
    • You must put a single space between First (or Last) and Name.
    • In place of First Name, you can use Given Name.
    • In place of Last Name you can use Last, Family Name or Surname.
  • You can also use the heading Full Name to import a single value that combines the first and last names.
    • You must put a single space between Full and Name.
    • In place of Full Name, you can use Full or Name.
    • If you use Full Name, the software checks to see whether the first and last names are separated by a comma (Last, First). If there isn't a comma, it separates the names with a space (First Last).
    • If you put three or more names with spaces between them, the software uses the last word as the last name and joins all of the first words to form the first name. For example, "Michael John Smith" is split with the last name as Smith, and the first name as Michael John.
