A Critical Survey of Auto-feedback Devices in Education.
DeMuth, Joyce; Hoepfner, Ralph
In their development of curriculum for the humanizing of learning, Research for Better Schools, Inc., has required the reorganization, reordering, and creation of instrumentation for evaluation in the higher-order cognitive skills, the affective skills, and the interpersonal skills. As part of their design, a critical organization and review of the state of the art for test-like instruments was made with the goal in mind of identifying those instruments and techniques with auto-feedback formats appropriate to curriculum packages under development. A taxonomy of feedback devices based on degree of mechanical complexity and amount of feedback provided was developed. (Author)
