The increasing use of Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) in university classrooms for the development of the teaching-learning process has led to the analysis of their impact on students' performance by many researchers.
However, little works can be found in the literature focused on how students perceive their use. Thus, the objective here is to assess students’ perception in a degree offered by the University of Valencia in a subject of quantitative nature in which a new pedagogical tool in university teaching, an electronic voting system (EVS), was used throughout the course.
To do this, data provided through an ad-hoc questionnaire addressed to these students is used. It consists of 10 questions, 6 of which are Likert scale type with five levels of response, 2 respond to the obtaining of information about the students’ profile, 1 to the assessment that the student makes of the use of the pedagogical tool, and 1 is an open question.
The results obtained reflect that the students' perception is more than satisfactory, with around 80% of them perceiving them as having a favorable impact in terms of allowing more dynamic lessons and improving the assimilation of concepts, and 40% indicating that they improved their continuous evaluation qualification. Finally, the mean score provided on a scale of 0 to 10 on the use of EVS is greater than 7.
Keywords: survey, likert scale, perception, ICT, electronic voting system (EVS).
