Effects of Feedback on Teacher Behavior. An Exploration into the Use of Videotaping in Teacher Education Programs.
Adair, Charles H.; Kyle, Allan R.
The research study reported in this monograph was designed to assess the effects of three types of feedback-evaluation procedures (two of which involved the use of video tape) in changing the question-asking behavior of inservice teachers. Three randomly formed groups of sixth-grade teachers participated in the three-stage study, with each group using one of the following feedback procedures; (1) standard observation practice (teacher-supervisor conference following classroom observation by supervisor); (2) self-analysis of videotaped teaching session; and (3) directed self-analysis (supervisor-assisted) of a videotaped teaching session. Among the findings of the study (which focused on two or four types of questions used in analysis of question-asking behavior) are (1) that the two video tape-based procedures appeared equally effective and were more effective than standard observation procedures in reducing the percentage of rhetorical questions asked by teachers and (2) that each of the three procedures was effective in increasing the percentage of probing questions asked. Among the tables and exhibits included in the appendix are several guides used by teachers and supervisors in observing and analyzing questioning behavior. (ES)
