For many courses in college, class participation is a key element for grading. In environments where a class requires constant feedback from students and their engagements in both dialog and discussions, a need has been identified for a way that would help professors manage students’ class sessions. Using Android Studio as the development platform, an application has been devised that can calculate and store student’s participation details including awarded points. RCPM, which is an acronym for Random Classroom Participation Management, is a tool designed to help faculty manage such educational dynamics regardless of class size. It is a smart phone based program that addresses the need for reliably annotating student participation details while selecting a student at random for questioning which can help to promote a suitable atmosphere of fairness among classmates through an equitable distribution of question and answer engagements.
