Get the Presentation Ready
Launch TurningPoint from the Start menu on the classroom computer. Once TurningPoint has started PowerPoint, open your presentation file.
Click "Reset" on the TurningPoint tab. This will remove all responses from previous sessions.
Select how responses will be received during the slide show. If you are doing a test run, choose "Simulated Data".
Run the presentation
Start your presentation from the View or Slide Show tab.
Whenever you arrive at a slide that requires responses, the TurningPoint Showbar will open. This bar allows you to control and monitor the responses. If you have setup response timing on your slides, and do not want to actively monitor the number of responses, you can hide the Showbar.
Run your presentation just as you normally would. Click once to see the responses tallied in the chart. For multiple choice questions, a second click will reveal the correct answer.
Save the presentation
Once you have finished the class, you have the option to save the responses for future records. Click Save Session from the TurningPoint tab, then save the presentation file from the Quick Access toolbar or the Office Button.
Note: You must save your TurningPoint presentations from both the PowerPoint Save icon and the TurningPoint Save icon. Although the icons look the same, they each save different files. Save from PowerPoint when saving your presentation; save from TurningPoint to save the session data you gathered from your students.
