Types of Student Feedback in Physical Diagnosis Lessons.
Kemp, Lawrence B.; And Others
Different feedback formats were utilized on a series of computer assisted lessons on physical diagnosis for second year medical students. Each lesson in the series is broken down into four or five major sections; in each section, the student is presented with a list of possible actions to be taken. On each item, three forms of feedback, two of which are generated by the computer, are received. The first type of feedback is ranking the items on the list in the order in which the student would do them; this rating is then compared with that of the author and his peers. A correlation coefficient is obtained for each comparison. The second feedback component is that of the "good/bad" judgment. The student is asked on each entry in the list whether he feels a particular action is appropriate; his response is immediately compared with the author's and he is informed of the result. The final and more personalized form of feedback is a short essay in which the student gives his opinion on the action. These essays are then stored, and later printed out for the instructor to read, review, and comment on. Although very limited student feedback was available, generally the students liked the instructional design feedback features. (VT)
