A Comparison of Four Types of Feedback to Student Responses on a CAI Unit Designed to Teach the Concept of Function.
Schoen, Harold L.
This study compared four instructional treatments which differed in the degree of individualization and personalization in a computer assisted instructional unit designed to teach the concept of function. The researcher developed two units and adapted the second for four types of feedback: two levels of individualization to incorrect responses and two levels of personalization throughout the instruction. The instruction lasted an average of 171 minutes, during which three achievement tests were administered, one after the first unit (a dummy run intended to minimize the Hawthorne effect) and one after each subunit of the experimental unit. An attitude test was also given at the end of the course. The results of an analysis of variance showed inconsistent significance of treatment effects, but students seemed pleased at the use of their first names during the instruction. (MM)
