Mentimeter is a web-based Clicker, Audience Response System (ARS) or Student Response System (SRS) which allows students to answer digital questions using a mobile device. It has the potential to transform the classroom environment into a more interactive, engaging and inclusive one. In this paper, a brief literature review has been provided which addresses the benefits of using ARS including Mentimeter in a large class. Additionally, the mechanics behind how the workings of the Mentimeter, its

Finally, a case study has been explained where Mentimeter was used for the formative assessment. In the present study, a Mentimeter formative assessment model has been developed which can be implemented as a good practice in Higher Education (HE). A survey on perception of students about using Mentimeter has been assessed and from the results, it is evident that using Mentimeter has a positive impact on students' attitude and performance, learning environment and technical aspects. These results will be further discussed by linking pedagogical theories and its benefits.
