1 - 1 Got It!™ – Introducing the Interactive
Classroom
Got It! ™ is the most comprehensive interactive educational
technology for the classroom environment.
As computers become increasingly ubiquitous in the
classroom, education continues to evolve from traditional
lecture methods toward higher levels of interactivity
between students and teacher. Got It! ™ is designed to
take advantage of the teacher’s existing lesson plans
and maximize interactive learning opportunities for
students, creating a more stimulating environment that
actually encourages students to participate. Easy-touse, convenient, and cost-effective, Got It! ™ makes
learning fun.

Got It!™ Overview
1 - 2 What is Got It!™ ?
Got It!™ brings the
interactive functionality
of the computer to the
classroom environment. A
single computer is all that
is required per classroom.
The computer presents a series of interactive lessons. Each
student is provided with a simple infrared remote control.
Pressing a key on the remote allows the computer to identify
which student pressed the key, and which key was pressed.
The result is a fully interactive learning environment that
encourages individual student participation, while making it
easy for teachers to instantly evaluate each student’s unique
progress.
Got It! ™ grades objective tests, tallies class averages and
saves all records, which facilitates the teacher’s in-class
learning performance and provides progress reports to
parents.
Because only one computer is needed, Got It!™ dramatically
reduces hardware costs, as well as the need for costly
network administration.

2 - 3 Receiver Setup
Once you have installed the Got It!™ software, connect the
USB plug of the IR receiver to the computer’s USB port:
Once the IR receiver is properly connected, position the
receiver in a suitable location where it is high enough to be
in direct line of sight for all class members, and not blocked
by desks, walls or other objects. Screw the magnetic bracket
provided into the back of the receiver. This sturdy magnetic
mounting bracket can be attached to anything metal, or
screwed into a wall (using proper hardware, not included).
For best results, aim the IR remote control directly at the
receiver while pressing any key. If the receiver does not
respond, adjust the angle of the receiver.
Recommended Classroom Set up for Optimal Performance
111 Install the IR receiver no less than the same height as
the top of a classroom white/black/smart board.
222 If the classroom is wider than 15 meters (16.4 yards or
49.22 ft), it is recommend to use a second receiver in
the front of the classroom.
visit us online at califone.com
14
Got It!™ System Setup
333 If the classroom is longer than 15 meters (16.4 yards or
49.22 ft), a second receiver is necessary in the middle of
the classroom for participants in the back.
444 Connect the optional small receiver to the original
receiver with included 5m (5.46 yards or 16.4 ft) cable.
555 Install the small receiver from the original receiver, at
the same height, same angle.
666 The receiver should point downwards at a 35 to 45
degree angle, towards the direction from where the
student and teacher transmitters will be held.
777 Avoid placing the receiver directly under light, since
IR transmission can be adversely effected by sunlight.

What is an EAS file?
Each set of material which is run in a Got It!™ relevant
activity is stored in an EAS file (Not all activities require
EAS files). The term EAS is derived from their extension
code. These files may be created by the user or previously
prepared ones downloaded from elsewhere, eg another
teacher’s EAS file , CSV file, etc.
Each file is given a name and allocated to a particular
course or subject area. This reflects the fact that normally a
single file contains related material with a common theme,
although a collection of completely disparate items can be
assembled if required.
The material in each file consists of a sequence of items run
successively in the activity. An item, which appears as a
single screen display during the activity, can be made up of
three sections:-
111 T h e S t e m .
In many cases, this is a question
requiring one or more correct answers, but it does not
have to be. For example, it could be a statement to
which the students respond whether it is true or false.
Or it could be a question and/ or instruction which
asks for a response which is neither right nor wrong,
eg when students are asked to cast a vote between

options or asked to state their liking for something on
a scale of, say, 1 to 5.
222 The Answer Options. Up to six options may be
entered which are possible answers to questions,
voting choices, a preference scale, etc. Items for the
Buzz-in activity do not require material in this section.
333 Multimedia. A range of multimedia files may be
added to enhance or replace the text of the stem and
options within the item. These include pictures,
sounds, video clips, animation, and web pages.

5 - 1 Interactive Instructional Activities
Got It!™ offers a wide range of interactive instructional
activities. Through the convenience of its EAS files,
instructors can choose from a variety of lesson plans and
formats, from prepared materials to impromptu questions.
Got It!™ provides six main interactive modes:
111 Ordinary Quiz: Got It!™ presents prepared teaching
materials in various question formats. Student
responses and class statistics can be compiled for
assessment purposes.
222 Competition Quiz: Got It!™ presents test questions
in a competition style presentation, with students or
groups of students attempting to be the first to answer
each question.
333 Buzz-in Quiz: Similar to the competition quiz,
however, only the first student to buzz in will be
called upon to answer the question.
444 Knock out Game: Students who answer incorrectly
are disqualified from answering further questions,
ultimately resulting in a single “winner.”
555 Prompt QA: This is a pure vote-tallying mode, with
the instructor dictating the question for immediate
response.

777 Pre-Planned Quiz: Pre-Planned Quiz is the most
often used mode. In this mode, the instructor can
assign a different mode to each question, ie. Ordinary
Quiz, Competition Quiz, Buzz-In, etc. in the
EAS file using Editor. When the instructor then runs
the EAS file in Pre-Planned mode, the system will
automatically run the files accordingly.
If the user opens the file using the Ordinary Quiz mode,
all previous settings will be overwritten to Ordinary Quiz,

What is Self-Paced activity mode?
The Self-Paced activity mode may be called the
electronic version of the traditional paper question and
answer assignment. The teacher prepares an EAS file with
questions and multiple choice answers using Got It!™. This
is then printed out and a copy is given to each student. The
students work through the assignment at their own speed,
recording the answers with their remotes as they are ready.
Thus, the teacher only needs to begin and end the activity.
••
Getting Started:
Before running the activity, the instructor prints out
the test or questionnaire and issues it to the students.
Students use the remote control to select the question
and then input the answers. When the test is completed,
the instructor can review the students’ answers using
the Report program.

What is PowerClick activity mode?
Today, PowerPoint® is the standard tool for giving
presentations of all kinds. Such files often contain questions
to motivate and assess students. The PowerClick activity
mode enables Got It!™ to be integrated with PowerPoint ®
files with only minimal effort in preparation.
In the PowerClick mode, a PPT file replaces an EAS file and
each PowerPoint® slide in the file corresponds to an item in
an EAS file. The PPT files should be compiled in the normal
way you would for PowerPoint®. Teachers can explain slide
contents and switch between slides as if they were operating
PowerPoint ®. A slide with a question and answer options
has the same function as in an EAS file, enabling students to
answer with their remotes.

If no ID number appears, wait two seconds and try
again. If the remote is still not recognized by the
program, check the positioning between the remote
and the receiver – there should be a clear line of sight
between the two with no obstructions.
If there is still no communication between receiver and
remote, check the receiver’s connection to the computer
to be certain the USB connector is firmly inserted. Also,
make sure you are using fresh batteries with the remote.
If there is still no communication, check the COM port
setup menu to confirm that the ClickDaemon software is
set to the correct COM port. (See Below)
