[Abstract]: This paper is based on an experiment which utilized the Classroom Performance (CPS) for teaching judgmental forecasting to undergraduate students. The system was adopted and utilized in a constructivist manner to simulate a Delphi exercise for long term prediction of water consumption. The main purpose was to teach judgmental forecasting in an interactive manner. A group of 20 students undertaking the undergraduate course of Business Forecasting at the University of Southern Queensland in Australia took part in this exercise. Although the students were in the same physical location, the technology enabled them to express their opinions without revealing any identity. The positive outcome a specially designed test has confirmed the effectiveness of this technology-based method of classroom teaching.
