Abstract: We have investigated the effectiveness of clickers as a support tool of the learning process of economics in higher education, specifically on the subject of Principle of Economics. We assessed whether support teaching with the use of Audience Response Systems (ARSs) increase the probability that the student passes the examination in both its theoretical and practical. We propose a mixed methodology, a bivariate probit model framed by statistical causal inference, which provides robust results. We have found strong statistical evidence, that the ARSs offer outstanding support to teaching, although with constraints. First focuses on the aforementioned theoretical and secondly, the help offered by the students ARSs is clearly a function of the frequency of use thereof cited by students.
