  • a user input mechanism for entry of user input and responses, the mechanism operating without receiving signals eliciting a response by the user;

    means for requiring the users input of a program identifier code for the program received apart from the response device;

    means for providing a user identifier code, the means selected from the group consisting of having the user identifier code associated with the response device and having the user input the user identifier code;

    a central processing unit (CPU) for correlating the responses the user has entered into the user input mechanism to the program identifier code and for processing the program identifier code, the user identifier code, and responses the user has entered into the user input mechanism;

    a power source; and

    a transmitter connected to the CPU.
